Lentz Traditional T Model w/ Lake Placid Blue Finish Pre-Owned 2016
Lentz Guitar® – Traditional Series T Model
In the early 1950s, when the first Telecaster and Stratocaster style guitars appeared on the market, they were thought of as a joke; guitar designs that would fade away quickly and be forgotten. Those early naysayers were wrong, to say the least, as any look through a current guitar magazine will reveal countless guitars from makers all around the globe that owe their DNA to the original T and S style guitars. In fact, there was genius in the designs—a sense of practicality, versatility, and a simplicity that allowed for easy maintenance and repair. Over the years, millions and millions of T and S style guitars have been made, and you find such guitars is every walk of music, from pure jazz to death metal.
The Lentz Traditional Series guitars take those iconic designs to the next level. They have made a careful study of these guitars over many years, and have worked on literally hundreds of vintage T and S Style guitars. They've seen great guitars and not-so great guitars over the years and have been able to derive a set of principles that are common to the great ones. Lentz bring this knowledge to their Traditional Series guitars, carefully selecting the raw wood and shaping the bodies and necks by hand. Every aspect of these models is carefully considered to bring out the true voice of each guitar. Articulate, warm round tones, great clarity and balance, and a wide tonal pallet; these qualities set the Traditional Series apart, fully embodying the promise of the original design.
