Brand new James Tyler Mongoose Retro - talk about a truly unique and versatile instrument, of course like all James Tyler pieces, this one has a beautiful natural resonance and an unbelievable custom paint job. The feel and playability of his masterpieces are unrivaled, anyone who has played one will all attest to this. Not to mention the tonal variety you get with the Single Coil / Mini Humbucker pickup configuration is outstanding - Full, round tone in the neck position, perfect for rhythm work, and a killer Tele bridge pickup that cuts through perfectly but isn't overly thin or shrill. Be sure to check out the HD photos for a better look at the museum-grade finish!
A new take on an old favorite, the Mongoose Retro combines simplicity with a touch of class. Showing that it is meant to be played, this guitar can be configured for a wide range of tones without "losing it" at the upper or lower positions.
