Limited Edition #8

This 25th Anniversary sports a lightweight and resonant ash body coupled with a maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard. The neck profile is Tyler perfect, a warm and seductive feel with Jim's wonderfully rounded fretboard edges. Electrically, it sears and rips and has that wonderful Strat tone without being overly quacky or edgy - just think Michael Landau. There's some serious genius in Jim Tyler's hands. Every guitar he makes has a distinct personality – even among identical models.

First developed for Michael Landau when he had his band Burning Water, this model has become one of the most identifiable Tyler guitars in the world. 2018 marks the 25th anniversary since the first Burning Water guitar was built.

To celebrate, James Tyler is offering a limited edition of 75th Anniversary Burning Water guitars, featuring a special logo on the front of the headstock and a commemorative logo on the back of the headstock that includes the number of the guitar. The 75th Anniversary model also features James' signature on the bare arm contour.

CRAIG'S POV

I've said it before, but I think it bears repeating. There's some serious genius in Jim Tyler's hands. Every guitar he makes has a distinct personality – even among identical models. That's something I've found over and over again in the many years I've been loving his guitars.

What I'm holding in my hands right now is a beautiful Studio Elite Burning Water 25th Anniversary Limited Edition. To be precise, #8 out of 75.

This 25th Anniversary sports a lightweight and resonant ash body coupled with a maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard. The neck profile is Tyler perfect, a warm and seductive feel with Jim's wonderfully rounded fretboard edges. I just love the feel!

Electrically, it sears and rips and has that wonderful Strat tone without being overly quacky or edgy - just think Michael Landau and you'll know what I mean.

When Jim does a limited edition guitar (not that he does many of them) I always know it is going to be special. I know that he will put his heart and soul into it and obsess over the details. That is who he is as a builder. After playing his guitars for 30 years, you would think my original enthusiasm might have calmed down over time. But that's not the case. I still get excited every time a new Tyler shows up at my door. There is always something particularly addictive about them, something very alive and inspiring there. This Anniversary edition #8/75 is no exception. It is here for you.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT TYLER GUITARS
James Tyler has had a guitar in his hand almost every day since he first picked one up the summer after seventh grade, in 1964. In college, Jim studied Architecture, Design, Music, Photography and for a couple years, Theology. He paid his way through these years of collage doing guitar repair work at local guitar stores, and as a factory trained auto mechanic for Alfa Romeo, Lancia, BMW and Fiat. Later into the 1970’s, he got connected with the guys at Norman’s Rare Guitars in the San Fernando Valley, and became their main repair and restoration guy. Jim’s abilities continued to expand and soon he had enough experience and reputation that he opened his first repair shop in Reseda, CA in 1980. Since then its been a whirlwind of successes, including being chosen to be displayed among the great California guitar companies such as Fender, Rickenbacker, Mosrite and Charvel in the Museum of California's exhibit The Ultimate Guitar Show and building for artists such as Michael Landau, David Williams, Steve Lukather, Michael Anthony, and Dan Huff. James' design shapes and various ground breaking guitar finishes and most recently his line of pickups have virtually transformed the guitar building industry.
