DeVille, the classic Cadillac is also are first full hollybody arch top. This style was originally known as a Jazz guitar, but rapidly found its way as a hallowed blues & rock guitar. Our classic features 2 F holes (excellent resonance)and a single cutaway. Gold hardware, gold pickup covers, gold Grover tuners and stunning black to cherry red see through flamed maple see through finish. Both top and backed arched body.
With our custom Bootlegger 3x3 head and our whiskey diamond fret inlays and logo the guitar fits perfectly in any smoke filled Jazz club blues joint or rocking roadhouse.
Our body is slimmer then most Jazz styles at 1 1/2 inches thick compared to a Gibson 335 that is 1 3/4 inch thick. Our body size is closer to a Les Paul. We wanted a more comfortable, lighter version of this classic style.
Our Bootlegger neck is best likened to a PRS JM shape, Fender modern C shape or a Gibson Slim Taper D shape for feel and playability. It is by far the most easy and recognizable shape for guitar players across the board. It delivers that vintage feel with a modern twist to keep it relevant and functional for guitar players playing any genre of music. You make no sacrifices playing a Bootlegger Guitar.
