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 combines Neil’s favourite elements of the guitars that were being made at 225 Parsons St, Kalamazoo, Michigan in the late 50’s, a blend of classic carved top and stripped back slab body.  Hand built from Premium Honduran and African Mahogany with an AAA Grade Indian Rosewood fingerboard, an ABS bound & subtly carved Eastern Maple top houses a matched ’59 PAF/P90 set of Sunbear Pickups, hand wound for Ivison in the UK to sound as close as possible to an original 50’s spec pickup. Featuring a one piece, Old Growth Honduran Mahogany neck with a profile hand carved with templates taken directly from a 1956 guitar. 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 faded 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.
