The Retro neck slanted humbucker along with the JTS5500 middle and legendary Super bridge pickup are a perfect match for this resonant swamp ash body. The sound is beautifully balanced and responsive with a rich low end and wonderful upper midrange sparkle. There is a great 3D quality to the sound, so it's perfect for live playing and recording.

CRAIG'S POV

There is something about opening the box holding a new Tyler that is really special. I never fail to get excited, even after 20 years of owning and playing these babies. No matter how many I've played, each and every one has something unique and special about it. These are not cookie cutter guitars. There is nothing generic about them. Every Tyler has it own special voice and story to tell. Every one seems to draw something out of me that inspires me. They're more than guitars you play. They're guitars that you create a bond with.

So here I am, looking at a brand new Burning Water SE HD with a quarter sawn maple neck and fingerboard and already my heart starts beating faster. This Burning Water is just stunning - a classic James Tyler look with the added glory of being a total body finish sans pickguard. This is my personal take on a Tyler design. As with all of Jim's guitars the playability is off the charts. The amazing neck shape and rolled fingerboard edges are truly seductive and are features that have made Tyler guitars so renown.

The Retro neck slanted humbucker along with the JTS5500 middle and legendary Super bridge pickup are a perfect match for this resonant swamp ash body. The sound is beautifully balanced and responsive with a rich low end and wonderful upper midrange sparkle. There is a great 3D quality to the sound, so it's perfect for live playing and recording. The midrange boost adds more fatness to any tone you desire and man, when you use the boost with the bridge pickup, well, it just rips.

Bottom line, if you are looking for a unique version of James Tyler Burning Water, don't let this one pass you by.

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.
