Lentz Reserve “Hyde Park” Tele – Double Bound

Lentz Reserve Tele “Hyde Park” that is JUST BACK from a FACTORY RECONDITIONING!   Read on folks!  Let me say that this instrument is THE single best playing Tele I’ve had in the store.  Is it the instrument itself or Scott’s magnificant setup/re-necking (read on)?….I don’t know but I DO know that it plays like nothing I’ve owned.  Got your interest?….

So this instrument was traded to me back in November; at that time I discovered that the neck had been shaved down to .77″…now rather than pulling the old “it was like that when I got it”, I took the advice of a dear friend and contacted Scott Lentz.  I explained the situation and Scott was AMAZING.  Scott said they had a super-flamey Reserve neck and could easily re-neck the guitar/set it up and get it back to me.  I was blown away that they would take the time and love to do such a thing.

Well, sure enough the Lentz team brought this baby back.  It has a BRAND NEW satin finish FLAME MAPLE NECK with Med/Hvy frets.  The neck is a C shape with a .875″ – 1.01″ depth and 1-11/16″ Width.  I can tell you it plays super smoothly and fast.  I have always LOVED Lentz guitars and say they are the STANDARD of the boutique guitar world…this would be the Hall-of-Fame example.

Tonally it is a dream to hear.  It has that sustaining full note that blooms and sticks out.  You can play as fast as you like and the guitar keeps up.  You can di in and it responds.  The body has a couple of surface dings and some light contact surface hairline swirls…but nothing that should scare anyone away.  Read my feedback from actual buyers and see 2100+ positive glowing reviews about getting clean gear at reasonable prices.

1996 Kiso-Klein DK-1 Acoustic     Indian RW & Sitka Spruce

1996 Kiso-Klein DK-1 Acoustic Indian RW & Sitka Spruce

I am a HUGE fan of Klein Guitars.  As a dealer in boutique instruments we always seek them out.  THIS is a wonderful acoustic that was created by Steve Klein in collaboration with top Japanese luthiers.  This was created by hand and not some stamped out wannabe.  The guitar is as beautiful to the eye as it is to the ear.   The low E string retains clarity and fits with the rest of the instrument (a quality I look for in top guitars).   Loaded with overtones and easy to play.  VERY responsive to changes in your picking dynamics.

In this day and age of expensive mass produced, why not step into a custom luthier created classic.  That’s what we stand for here…alternatives that are BETTER for the same or less than the mass produced.

The woods are Indian Rosewood & Sitka Spruce.  The nut is 44mm and the scale is 644mm.  This comes with the original hardshell case.  The issue of note is there is a slight ‘hazing’ or clouding to the finish; this is a common problem with this type of finish.   Aside from that it is super clean with maybe a couple of very tiny little surface dings.  We specialize in clean gear.  All of our sales are on the internet so we understand how important it is to reasonably describe our gear (check our feedback).

I love the color on this piece. I believe it’s Wicked Burst but that is not promised…it is what I determined by checking the color vs. the site.  The Pickups I believe (not 100%)  are Duncan P90s.  The board is Ebony.  The tuners are GOTOH Open.  The body is mahogany w a flame maple top.  The neck is mahogany.  Frets are Med/Heavy.   The neck is a C-profile with .855″-.945″ Measurements.

2018 Nacho Banos Mid-50s Strat in Mint “-” Condition with Original Hardshell Case & Paperwork/CD.  These are the top of the food chain of modern production aged F-style guitars.  The Teles are rare….strats….almost impossible to find.   This one is just a few months old from a nonsmoking environment.

SEE THE SPECS/CONDITION SHEET IN THE 3rd PICTURE

I own a Nacho for my collection and I can own ANYTHING.  They just capture that vintage feel and tone like nothing I’ve experienced (and I carry every top modern brand and have had pristine examples of vintage).

This Strat features an ASH body with a 1-piece Maple Neck.  The neck is fretted with Med/Heavy frets (his 95/47).    The width is 1.65″ and the radius is 9.5″.  The Neck is a Medium-V measuring .87″-.995″.   You will LOVE how broken in this piece feels without seeming cheesy or over-done.

COUPLE OF NOTES:  1. The backplate and screws are in the case.  2. YES the trem bar is in the case.  3.  NO this does not include the hardcover book
