The SVL 61

This guitar was based on Matt Schofield's own 1961 Strat, it features a one or two piece alder body (depending on weight) full Nitro Cellulose paint finish, a flat sawn maple neck also in Nitro finish, a dark rosewood fingerboard and a choice of Jescar 6105 or 6100 fret wire. It is available either with a 7.1/4-9.5" or straight 9.5" radius, all of this on my custom design 60's soft C shape neck. The guitar features Callaham hardware (the very best in the business) and Custom wound SVL Daytona pickups, all mounted on an aged colour pickguard. All the pots are CTS which are smooth feeling and close tolerance, I managed to find some great sounding New Old Stock Ceramic tone caps, and the jack is Switchcraft, I always use CRL switches for their lifelong reliability.

The SVL 61These guitars are slightly more modern feeling yet very vintage in influence. They work superb well for all music and really lend themselves well to overdriven guitar tones because of their very 'even' response up and down the neck.
