The goal isn't to reinvent the wheel, but rather redefine the guitar by focusing more on the importance of feel and sound. Hand-built in California with the greatest of care, Xotic electric guitars are wonderful instruments that are truly made to be played. The moment you pick up one, you'll be treated to a gig-ready extension of yourself - built from premium woods, incorporating meticulously sourced hardware, and brought together with detailed finish work. From a tonal aspect, you're getting a rock-solid instrument armed with custom pickups that have been hand-wound in the Xotic workshop. Sounds like all of the makings of an electric guitar that's ready for any performance!
