Description

The Elite is the crown jewel in our Heritage solid body lineup. The Elite features a unique single cutaway body design with a contoured back and crescent neck junction allowing better access to the top of the fingerboard and lessening the overall weight of the guitar. The Elite features nearly every high-end appointment that the discerning player might want to see. The Elite is built with a solid Mahogany body, topped off with a solid 3/4 inch carved slab of Canadian maple in Gloss Black finish. To properly accentuate this stunning top, we added a rectangular Mother of Pearl and abalone inlay design on a bound ebony fingerboard, and 3 stripe binding on the top of the body. As if that weren’t rich enough, we topped it off with all gold hardware on Gloss Black Models and a pair of Seymour Duncan Humbuckers, ’59 in the neck and a JB in the bridge. The Elite remains in a class all its own.

  1. Ryan Murtagh

    I bought this guitar used from a guitar shop in New York about 2 years ago. I hadn’t heard of prestige guitars, but it felt really good to play, so came back and bought it. I have had for about 2 years and it play incredibly. I thought the neck joint was a little overkill, but once you get to playing in 14th position and up it really comes in handy and is very comfortable. The neck pickup is very rich, and the bridge pickup is super sharp and aggressive. I’ve played jazz, rock, blues, country, metal, funk, just about anything on this guitar. It is so versatile and is my go to guitar out of all of them. I originally was going to buy a Les Paul standard but something about playing this guitar makes me certain I made the right decision.
