The BYOGuitar 59 Elite!

Another original design by BYOGuitar!
The 59 Elite was inspired by the legendary guitars of the 50's. Constructed from the same materials used to create the look and sounds of iconic guitars. A Mahogany body provides the foundation for sweet tone and sustain. For the working musician we’ve chambered the body for maximum weight relief. Cap this off with the standard top wood, Eastern rock Maple, and you have the ingredients of an icon.

The set neck is constructed from the finest quality, quartersawn materials. This creates a straight, stable neck for years to come. Choose the wood for construction to produce the tone you are after. From the warmth of Mahogany to the bright sound of Maple. A double action truss rod allows fine adjustment to achieve the action you are after. Complete each neck with the inlays of your choice. 24.75” scale length, Jumbo frets and a chunky feel make it a joy to play.

Our interpretation of the legend includes a modern contoured carved top and chambered body. Choose a solid top or modern f-hole. The neck heel has been contoured for comfort.

The electronics are the highest quality, modern components, wired to historic specs. CTS pots, a Switchcraft switch and jack and orange drop cap.
You can upgrade your wiring to a BYOGuitar LP Harness to get even more from your electronics!!
