New Build: Bayou Southpaw




Hi Everyone!

We have a new build of our Bayou model here for you today! This is out first left handed build and we had a blast making it! It was certainly interesting making a mirror version of one of our models and trying to play this, as a right handed person, makes me feel like I've never picked up a guitar before!

We decided to update the Bayou design very slightly with a new outlined edge on the top and a reverse headstock. We also swapped out the traditional Tele bridge for a fixed Hipshot® and bridge humbucker. We feel these modifications give it a bit more of a modern feel, while still maintaining the traditional roots.

The pickups are Bare Knuckle® Black Dog Humbucker in the bridge with a calibrated Slow Hand® Singlecoil in the neck. This gives the guitar a great warmth and clarity but still with plenty of bite!
