What We Think

Wes Lambe, master luthier and repair person for Sound Pure and Richard Flickinger, innovative boutique pedal builder from Raleigh, have teamed up to create a unique custom guitar with futuristic form, extremely smooth playability, and the Rude Bomb Boost circuit built in!

Wes does Sound Pure's repairs and setup work and also happens to build some seriously amazing boutique hand-crafted guitars! We were excited to hear that one of our favorite local pedal builders had worked with Wes on this funky electric!

The shape is suprisingly ergonomical. It's comfortable sitting or standing. With all the wacky shapes some builders are getting into, it's difficult to find one that really works outside of the classic shapes. This one really works! Its a non-offensive design that truly works! The 3-tone sunburst provides a classic look and shows the beautiful even grain throughout. The birdseye maple on the back of the headstock is a perfect custom touch to a great overall guitar. Forget the aesthetics for a minute and remember that this is a seriously great playing guitar! You have to play it to know.

"What's a Rude Bomb?" you may be wondering. Flickinger Tone Boxes is a relatively new hand-wired pedal line by Raleigh guitarist and tech wizard, Richard Flickinger. Sound Pure carries the entire line of Flickinger pedals and the Rude Bomb Boost has been one of our favorites. It takes to your dynamics and is extremely musical and offers even note separation. Having teh Rude Bomb in this Wes Lambe Guitar is brilliant! Pull the volume knob out to engage and use the black knob for the amount of boost.

This guitar has not been sold before, but has been played prior to getting to Sound Pure's shop. This guitar would normally sell for $2400 and we are offering it at $1750. It's a serious deal on a serious guitar that you likely won't find any blemishes on. It's mint

Time to rock!  Call or Email any time for more info on the ver first Wes Lambe Rude Bomb Guitar!



Manufacturer's Description from Wes Lambe

My musical instruments are premium quality and handmade in Chapel Hill, NC. USA. Rooted in traditional building techniques, I incorporate modern materials and innovations that accommodate better playability, more reliable performance, and improved intonation. Every instrument is built with a clear vision of a beautiful, musical, and extraordinary end result, with a consistency of the techniques and skills required.

I specialize in building fanned-fret ®* and custom extended range instruments (Mono and stereo 7 string guitar, mono and stereo 8 string guitar, as well as many custom instruments that "don't exist yet" ), but my roots are in building all types of 'traditional" fretted instruments (Electric six string guitars, "bluegrass" dreadnaught acoustic guitars, bluegrass mandolins, mandocello, archtop acoustic "jazz" guitars, etc.).
