CRAIG'S POV

This stellar preowned Tylerbaster is straight out of a collection and is in like-new condition.

The refinement of James Tyler's guitars makes them a pleasure to experience. Whether playing or merely looking at his instruments, you know they've been delivered by a master. Look closely at the details; the perfect fret and finish work, the ultra-clean lines where wood meets wood or metal. You'll feel a deep sense of visual satisfaction. And then there is the tone - balanced, articulate, responsive to your every musical gesture. Holding a Tyler in my hands makes me smile every time!

Those who know, know that James has a way with necks; it's just one of the many things that make those who love Tyler love Tylers. For example, the way he gently (and masterfully) rounds the fingerboard edges - it feels like a fine vintage neck. It's like sliding your hands into the well-worn pockets of your favorite jeans. It's all topped off by the stunning copper patina shmear finish. Totally original, totally Tyler.

For me, Tyler gets it all right. His vast experience brings you the beauty of this Tylerbaster while retaining the heart and soul of the original T guitars.

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.
