The Finkelpearl VectorJet-CG is the first in what we hope may be a long line of new American guitars for players of all styles. The guitars are designed by Mark Finkelpearl and built to exacting specs by a master luthier in the heart of the USA. For trade secret reasons, we're not going to list him here but he's a former staff builder in the Fender Custom Shop. Each guitar is handbuilt.
In the bridge, there's a Lollar JM pickup; in the neck position it's a Danelectro lipstick. This configuration gives the guitar that signature Lollar punch combined with the jangly single coil tone of the Danny lipstick. The guitar will be available in various pick-up configurations and different colors and trim-lines. Down the road, we'll likely have a version available with a Bigsby whammy.
In the video, you can watch Ed Jurdi of Austin, Texas' Band of Heathens put the guitar through some paces. Thanks, Ed!!! http://bandofheathens.com.
Your contribution helps with two major things: finishing the prototype process and setting up the e-commerce and marketing components that will make the guitar available worldwide.
Also in the works are major artist endorsements along with an independent brick and mortar retailer whose already agreed to take Finkelpearl Guitars into thier inventory.
From the bottom of my heart, thanks for this Kickstart...!
