A deliciously twisted Studio Elite made to Jim Tyler's very own specs!
Weight: 7 lbs. 5 oz.
I read where Tyler stated the inspiration for the Barn Find finish came from seeing weathered vehicles discarded in farm/rural areas.
If you think about the "Sun Bleached/Faded" finish on the Barn Find it makes perfect sense - think "organic aging"
Jim certainly brings the art of relicing to a new level.
She is acoustically so alive you won't believe it - will ring for days :)
Sparkling single coil tones with a thick singing humbucker and a mid-boost to boot ....
Just like my shirt says :
"Tyler Guitars, you either know or you don't" ........
Before you try a high-end guitar for the first time, you respond to your heart. You saw the guitar for the first time and something about it touched you and created such a dose of anticipation in your being that you had to check it out.
The sooner, the better. And when you tracked one down, and held it, looking at it, turning it over and around, soaking up the aesthetic of it all, you realize it's more than just a guitar, it's a piece of art, and the anticipation grows.
You finally find a place to sit, shift yourself around a little until you are comfortable, slide the guitar into place, and really grab the neck for the first time.
You still haven't played a note yet, but you know.This is what everyone is talking about. Now the question is, how, however irresponsible it may be,how are you going to buy it?
When the guitar sounds like magic, you play better. When you play better, you want to just keep on playing.
