What we had Jim build here is a marriage of the two models - a Black Classic with the Dann Huff electronic package. Or you can think of this as a Dann Huff model with chrome hardware. Either way you imagine it, it’s just a killer guitar!! With the quietness of the upgraded Duncan stacks combined with the Huff series parallel buttons and Tyler's mid range boost circuitry you have an extremely versatile sounding guitar.

CRAIG'S POV

I just love Tyler's Black Classic. I'm also a big fan of Tyler's Dann Huff model. So what I had Jim build here is a marriage of the two models - a Black Classic with the Dann Huff electronic package. Or you can think of this as a Dann Huff model with chrome hardware. Either way you imagine it, it’s just a killer guitar!!

It's sort of an LA Studio Classic on steroids. With the quietness of the upgraded Duncan stacks combined with the Huff series parallel buttons and Tyler's mid range boost circuitry you have an extremely versatile sounding guitar, perfect for stage or studio.

Light, resonant, vibey, with a fabulous neck, this guitar has all the goodness that Tyler lovers expect, and then some. It combines a unique and potent recipe derived from Mike Landau's original Black Tyler and Dann Huff's souped up Black Tyler.

The neck is Tyler-comfy and is his standard ’59 profile. Jim’s dedication to pure excellence in guitar making is evident in every aspect of the instrument; frets, finish, feel, it’s something Tyler somehow manages to instill in every instrument I’ve had the pleasure of having in the shop.

There is something really pleasing about standing back from a guitar, staring, taking it all in and knowing that everything is where it should be, nothing to add or take away; it's just perfect. Thanks once again, Jim!

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.
