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. 

The Hurricane ’57 is the latest addition to the successful Hurricane line from Ivison, inspired by the classic singlecut from 1957 with its authentic Aged Goldtop finish and deep carve maple top.  This exceptional handbuilt instrument has a body made from Premium African Mahogany with an AAA Grade Indian Rosewood fingerboard, and an ABS bound & beautifully carved Eastern Maple top.  The hand wound pickups are Ivison’s own ’57 PAF humbuckers – a set is based on a particularly great set of late 50’s PAF humbuckers Ivison had the pleasure of spending some time with and documenting their specs. These pickups feature full vintage appointments; Alnico 2 magnets, 42 AWG plain enamel wire, Butyrate bobbins, 1010 steel pole screws and aged nickel covers, 3d scanned from an original PAF, and are topped off with genuine Butyrate M69 pickup rings. The Hurricane ’57 features a one piece Spanish Cedar neck with a profile hand carved with mid ’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 and 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.
