Description

Matt Loxley of Loxley Custom Guitars has a growing reputation as one of the UK’s most talented bespoke guitar builders, producing a small number of hand built instruments each year using only the first tone woods. This example is a superb example of Matt’s work – a Strat-style guitar with a resonant bookmatched ash body in a beautiful trans baby blue satin finish, teamed with a spectacular solid quarter sawn rosewood neck, with flamed maple skunk stripe – again satin finish. The neck has 21 medium jumbo frets, with mother of pearl headstock inlay and fret markers, including the Loxley signature Leaping Trout inlay at the 12th fret. This a seriously solid piece of guitar building, with the ash/rosewood combo tipping the scales at 4.4kg, beautifully balanced and giving wonderful sustain. All the Strat tones you’d expect are here – the guitar is equipped with Route 66 hand wound pickups in the neck and middle positions, together with a custom made Fletcher “Hot Rails style” humbucker in the bridge position providing a bit more grunt (but not quite as sizzlingly hot as the Seymour Duncan Hot Rails pickup). Wiring is traditional Strat-style with a single volume control and tone controls for the middle and neck pickups, and a 5-way pickups selector switch. Matt has selected the very best hardware for this model with Gotoh tuners, brass nut, CTS pots and PIO capacitor. This is a fine, unique UK built guitar which is sure to appeal to discerning guitar enthusiasts. Comes complete with hardcase.
