This Tuned ST in Shoreline Gold is another prime example of the expert craftsmanship and attention to detail that we've grown to expect from Michael Tuttle. It has been custom spec'd by MGS as a tribute to Tuttle artist Jeff McErlain's personal guitar. It features 22 of the best feeling frets you'll find, a roasted maple neck and proprietary pickups and bridge. Being that it is a Tuned model, it is lightly chambered which adds resonance and weight relief. Tuttle's mini humbucker in the neck is to die for and the "PD" humbucker in the bridge offers throaty tones with added clarity and detail. The roasted maple neck is as smooth as silk and the "C" shaped neck rests perfectly in your hand. This is a truly inspiring guitar! Once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down. As Tuttle says, "It's all in the feel!"
