Kauer Guitars

Description

A hand-built tribute to one of the most iconic guitar designs of the 1960s, the Kauer Banshee Deluxe features a gorgeous curly maple top of a Spanish mahogany body and thru-neck. Loaded with TV Jones Powertron+ pickups, the Banshee Deluxe channels the fire of the original design, with added bite and brightness from the maple top. The thru-neck is a comfortable "C" profile, and the wenge fingerboard is smooth and fast.
