Preowned 2020, mint

Beyond the warmth and mojo of a fabulous vintage instrument, this Lentz has superb playability and class-A electronics. The superbly flamed maple neck is a classic '56 soft V shape with a beautiful 40-year-old Brazilian rosewood board. Scott's '56 profile neck is absolutely righteous. To bring it all to life, Scott winds his pickups specifically for each guitar. They're a match made in guitar heaven.

CRAIG'S POV

A 2020 Scott Lentz S Style Private Reserve in mint condition has arrived straight out of a collection.

Lentz never ceases to amaze and impress my guitar sensibilities. Each guitar I receive is loaded with its own unique personality. This is a traditional 'S' style guitar in the deepest possible sense. A holy grail Strat that feels as if someone went to the original Fender factory during its early glory days when the stars were in perfect alignment, and the wheel of Karma was pointing straight at a great guitar.

But beyond the warmth and mojo of a fabulous vintage instrument, this Lentz has superb playability and class-A electronics. The superbly flamed maple neck is a classic '56 soft V shape with a beautiful 40-year-old Brazilian rosewood board. I have played hundreds, if not thousands of Strats throughout my career, and Scott's '56 profile neck is absolutely righteous.

The Daphne blue finish on this lightweight guitar is superb; perfection personified. If you've never seen a Lentz, you should know that the photographs here cannot quite capture the depth, richness, and honesty of his finish. To bring it all to life, Scott winds his pickups specifically for each guitar. They're a match made in guitar heaven. Lentz crafts a world-class S-style instrument. With the best of the best components, this is a guitar imbued with excellent playability and tone, and soul.

Lentz has recently upped his price on these beauties to $8,350, so if you are interested, don't let this Daphne Blue beauty 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 LENTZ GUITAR
Scott Lentz has an enduing reputation as a legendary guitar maker and restorer of vintage guitars. In fact, before he opened Lentz guitar in Southern California, he had restored hundreds of vintage instruments and had become widely known as "the" guy for vintage finish restorations. Lentz guitars are known for being deeply resonant, uncannily vintage in feel, and for having an expanded tonal pallet. Scott believes that the tone of great vintage guitars is due to the accretion of thousands of tiny details from (of course) the finest tone woods to the interaction of fretboard and neck materials. He is also one of the few electric guitar makers that takes the trouble to use hide glue in his guitars. He counts his vast experience with vintage guitars as the key to developing his ear for guitar tone, and for teaching him what a great guitar is all about. Scott is a restless spirit, ever in search of perfection, never content to rest on his laurels. He is the quintessential guitar maker as artist, passionate about bringing artful and musical guitars into the world. His son Scott, Jr. has now worked with his father for 20 years, and together they are the force behind some of the most finely crafted guitars you will find anywhere in the world.

ABOUT LENTZ SPECIAL RESERVE BESPOKE BUILDS
CR Guitars is incredibly fortunate to have Scott Lentz and his son Scott Jr craft a very select reserve line of classic S and T style guitars. Each one is built using only woods that have been cabinet aged a minimum of 25 years or more. These guitars are built with the deepest knowledge of what these legendary models could and should be. Decades of experience have gone into discovering and executing the elements that give the best of the vintage Fenders their magic. Scott's obsession with every detail has helped him unraveled all the nuances to the magic imbued in vintage Fenders. A Lentz is truly what a Masterbuilt guitar should be. Everything is just is as you'd dreamed it would be. No detail is overlooked, from the chemistry of the lacquer to the handwound pickups, every part and procedure is done for a reason. It's really exciting to be able to share Scott's vision and creations with you.
