• Curly maple neck
• Ebony fretboard
• Stainless steel frets
• Forged titanium bridge with GraphTech saddles
• Waverly bronze tuners
• Patent-pending trapezoid neck profile

• Carved Roman numeral position markers
• Mahogany "skeletonized" body
• Hand-forged rosehead nails
• Bronze Alumitone neck pickup
• Seymour Duncan Antiquity 'Tele bridge pickup
• Forged titanium hardware
• Purple plush lined custom Calzone flight case
Skele has exceptional acoustic-guitar-like response. Responds to a light touch. Unique and beautiful tones, with more than a hint of classic 'Tele bite. Supremely light weight instrument, comfortable for hours of play.
