One of Tony's most beautiful designs and creations. The wonderfully decorative Zemaitis Custom Shop SU501DC-Sabre Electric Guitar gives you that special feel and look of a 'Superior' Zemaitis.

Bridge / Tailpiece
The bridge and tailpiece were designed by Tony Zemaitis for perfect intonation, ultimate sustain and tonality. Made of Duralumin and with the Zemaitis name beautifully engraved to match all of the metalwork.

Featuring DiMarzio PAF DP103 pickups, which have a 'brushed-chrome' finish. The pickup mount rings are also made of Duralumin to complement the bridge.

Zemaitis Method Set-in Neck
The neck joint is a critical part of a top-quality guitar. Tony Zemaitis only ever used glued-in joints. He experimented with various types of set-in neck joints with the aim of achieving the best possible results and designed a special technique where the neck was set further into the body than mainstream construction methods. The Zemaitis neck joint enables the neck and body to have more surface area in contact. This increases the durability of the whole guitar as well as enhancing string vibration, tone and sustain.

Neck / Scale
25" scale with a 3-piece Honduras mahogany construction as used by Tony Zemaitis for strength and stability. It has an ebony fingerboard with binding, precision frets and the perfect shaped neck for playability - all undertaken by experienced craftsman in the Zemaitis custom shop.

Without compromise, Zemaitis uses the best high quality low-noise components and wiring components available, include a dedicated 'pot' design. All of this ensures smooth control and durability for your Zemaitis guitars.

The finish is another key quality of the instrument. Tony had a special hand-finishing technique involving multiple coats of hand-applied lacquer and rubbing-down by hand in-between each coat.

This process takes 4-5 times longer than a typical 'spray finished' factory-guitar but it gives you the wonderful look and feel of a hand-built vintage guitar. Zemaitis continues this art of hand-finishing at a small custom shop where master craftsmen hand-polish each individual guitar.

Hand-polishing gives the guitar a silky touch which is unlike anything else - when played. Tony also chose this method because you get a very strong but thin coating. This enables the natural acoustic qualities of the wood to come through - so you get a better sound too!

Zemaitis Quality Custom Shop
The highly experienced team of luthiers and technicians at the Zemaitis Custom Shop are proud to be reproducing the original high level of quality, sound and playability of Zemaitis.

They don't compromise on the cost of materials or time needed to get it right - they just want to give you the best guitars in the world.
