Proof that there can be truly affordable American made electrics. Both instruments feature Guild XR-7 pickups, Quick Change SP-6 tailpiece, Adjusto-Matic bridge, and deluxe tuning machines. S-250 has two volume, one tone control. S-25, one volume, one tone. Both have a pickup selector switch, and phase or coil tap switches are optional for each guitar. Jan Hammer, who's written for such guitar wizards as DiMeola, Schon, and Beck, now uses our S-250 to compose guitar parts with. He claims it's the "easiest to play" electric guitar he ever picked up. Willy DeVille said of it "The pickups have a great range from fat to thin. It's very playable." The S-25 features that same great feel.
