The SVL Reserves were inspired by some of the very best vintage Fenders I was lucky enough to play and work on, I set out to build a lightweight resonant guitar with the true look, feel and tone of these amazing instruments. The majority of the timber used in these guitar builds is salvaged timber and is naturally air dried not kiln dried. I had pickups custom wound for me with these guitars in mind, and they also are lightly aged to not only sound fabulous but look incredible too, these guitars have the true clarity and chime of the originals, perfect for clean straight into the amp playing when you really want to ‘hear’ the playing and touch sensitive tone. They have a more natural warmth and slight scoop in the midrange, the low end is slightly ‘loose’ sounding giving it more of a hint of vintage vibe.
They are built from the ground up to be ‘new old’ guitars, not just a battered new guitar, I think you will see, feel and hear the difference over the more modern sounding SVL sixty one..
