    Could this be Three Lions on a Shirt?

    Paul - with those guitars you are clearly winning , even when Palace or England aren't.

    Many guitars have a re-sale value. Some you'll never want to sell.

    Can't resist this, given the tenuous link with the title thread....

    What's brass and sounds like Tom Jones?

    My latest plaything - The Tabby GT
    Basically an alder bodied Feline tabby with the extended cutaway on the rear and body comfort contours
    Neck is a 3 piece quartersawn maple with some nice flame figuring,12" radius fingerboard with Dunlop 6000 fretwire and an Earvana nut. Neck fixings are via Grainger's threaded inserts in the neck and allen bolts.
    Inlays are Paua abalone for the front and side markings are OTT size Luminlay (glow in the dark) within a black circle.
    neck has an oil finish  while the painted bits are all nitrocellulose
    Fab racecar paintwork by @lamf68 ;
    Hardware is a Schaller Hannes Bridge (similar to what we have been using on the Blackmachine guitars) and Ratio Tuners.
    Pickups are Bare Knuckle - Miracle Man humbucker and a Slow hand strat puckup with a steel baseplate at the neck
    Controls are CTS pots , Jensen tone cap and a switchcraft jack in an Electrosocket. 
    Cavities screened with our Nickel screening paint.

     The way that custom scratch plate interacts with the control plate and the bridge is soooo trick. That and the forearm relief make for a killer vintage reimagined aesthetic

    We're trying to make it one of our popular models and it is all about the "updated classic" vibe we like to perpetuate.
    Here was it's sibling , now in the hands of a forum member...

    That tele was lusted over by me for quite a while. It just worked for me every time I went to try things out at Feline. It now resides where it belongs :-)

    Could this be Three Lions on a Shirt?

     @FelineGuitars ;; you should sell t-shirts at next year's Guitar Show - some of your guitars laid out horizontally, with the caption,



    * ahem *


    "Felines on a shirt"



    I'll get me coat.

  • Well the Shred Lion project is nearly complete - a trio of guitars that bridge the gap between our popular Lion models and the Blackmachine B6s we build so favoured by tech metal players. We will run their own thread in a bit , but here is a sneak of the first completed one

  • Two new babies coming through:

    Strat Gilmour Pulse
    Our homage to the candy apple red strat that Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour played in the 1990s. Loaded with the EMG SAV pickups and the DG20 active electronics circuit with a mid boost and a guitar expander control.
    Guitar has an alder body and three piece quartersawn neck . 
    Hardware is tuners from Sperzel, bridge is a Gotoh 510 narrow spaced tremolo with a steel block and an Earvana nut aids the tuning. All access neck joint with machine thread screws into brass inserts in the neck




    Feline Tabby Special - Mary Kay Finish
    A twist on the classic bolt-on neck singlecut guitar in a transparent white over a swamp ash body.
    All access neck joint with machine thread screws into brass inserts in the neck
    Gotoh bridge with twitable saddles for good intonation and Gotoh height adjustable post tuners
    Bare Knuckle Yardbird pickups
    Electrosocket recessed jack socket cup with a switchcraft jack socket


    Both have Luminlay side dot markers - activate with a UV torch and they will glow for an hour or more - great for dark stages, and All access neck joint with machine thread screws into brass inserts in the neck

  • We will have a new string gauge set available soon- one that we have been testing out and having good results with - it stands somewhere between the best-selling 10-46 and the popular 10-52 sets and is a slightly better balanced set (having the unwound strings from a set of 10s and the wound strings from a set of 11s. It is a good companion to our other hybrid set (Best of Both Worlds 9-46)

  • Just out of interest @FelineGuitars how long is the lead time for one of your guitars?
    We usually quote about a year, especially as we do it in tandem with our repair work
    This allows for the guitar to be built and allow a little rest time between stages so the wood has a chance to settle and stabilise after each process 
    It also allows enough time to get it painted too and back , reassembled, rested and final set-up.
    It also means you can pay for it more easily over the course of it's build.
