A vintage S style guitar modeled after the late 50s Strat, the look combined with the tone and play feel has us in awe! The hand-wound pickups are nothing short of incredible, true vintage tone but not weak. They exude that familiar 50s vibe, and cut easily through the mix with a chimey, sweet midrange. Fantastic bridge pickup with great bite that doesn't suffer from the typical, thin Stratocaster high end, and stands out with a full, harmonically rich tonal spectrum. Beautifully relic'ed, and feels incredible in your hands... like a properly worn in, vintage Strat that has been your stage and studio companion for years. Loaded with upgrades such as a premium grade Swamp Ash body Roasted Birdseye Maple neck, the Playa series has since been discontinued and is becoming increasingly difficult to find.
"The Dover is our personal tribute to the iconic solid body guitar that changed rock-n-roll history back in 1954. Made famous by Buddy Holly in the mid 1950’s and revived to popularity by Jimi Hendrix in the late 1960’s, the tone produced by this guitar can be heard on literally thousands of hit records."
