Ivison Guitars is a small, boutique electric guitar company based in Worcestershire, UK.  All Ivison guitars are hand built, one at a time by Neil Ivison, from raw lumber selection to the final hand buffed ‘vintage patina’ finish using the finest quality materials available and using traditional construction methods and techniques. 

In an ongoing quest toward classic 50’s tone, the Hurricane ’54 takes the Hurricane shape, utilises 50’s construction techniques, adds some features unique to the much sought after 1954 LP Goldtop. Hand built from Premium Honduran and African Mahogany with an AAA Grade Indian Rosewood fingerboard, an ABS bound & beautifully carved Eastern Maple top, with a deep carve profile to match the original, housing a set of Sunbear Pickups Vintage Spec SB90 pickups, hand wound for Ivison in the UK to sound as close as possible to that sought after tone of the original LP. Featuring a one piece, Old Growth Honduran Mahogany neck with a profile hand carved with ’50s profile. Genuine 50’s celluloid dots are used and the fingerboard edges are lightly rolled so it feels like a neck that has been played for years. Finished with vintage correct aniline dyes in vintage formulated nitro-cellulose lacquer then  lightly aged, the Hurricane is designed to look, feel, sound and inspire like guitar from the 50’s but behave like the modern, boutique handcrafted guitar it is.

Comes with a Hiscox hardcase and certificate of authenticity.
