CRAIG'S POV

There is something uniquely different about Glendale Guitars. They are a company based in Texas whose mission is to create the very best possible parts for T style guitars. Parts of such a high level that many builders have turned to them for their superior grade rolled steel bridges and saddles. Many players in the know have customized their own guitars with Glendale parts. Check out some of these outstanding testimonials: https://glendaleguitars.com/testimonials/

It's not just bridges and saddles. Glendale makes its own pickups, and its own paper in oil capacitors.

Here's your chance to experience all this goodness together in one great place. That's because Glendale offers their own guitars built by their extremely skilled artisans. Our current offering is the Retro Blackguard version of their Tele line. Exquisitely crafted and a featherweight - 5.10 lbs — this guitar has all the resonance and woody spank you'd expect from a fine T style guitar. The Glendale 1949 pickups bring out all the T style goodness from a vintage style guitar, with the added bonus of modern playability.

If you are a neck guy, like me, this neck just nails the vintage blackguard vibe. The premium one-piece flame maple neck is superbly carved with a full and comfortable feeling U shape. The shoulders are perfectly done and with a 7.25" fingerboard radius, this neck just molds perfectly into your hand. It's a righteous vintage feel!

Bottom line; this Glendale Retro Blackguard is rich with T style attitude, the highest quality parts, and playability that makes it right at home in any playing situation. A real winner!
