LSL Saticoy One - Matte Black/Maple

 

The new LSL One Series means exciting news for LSL fans. By using a matte finish rather than gloss, the company is able to lower the cost significantly, essentially offering 2016 models at 2009 pricing. These are still the same lightweight, vintage-look guitars that have been impressing players for years—still handmade in California—but without the high-gloss finish.

 

This LSL Saticoy One Strat-style guitar is lightweight, with a well-worn, black nitro relic appearance, fading white plastic and less-than-shiny metal parts. The hand-cut maple neck is a “barely V” shape, very comfortable, with aged toner and skunk stripe. The fingerboard is aged maple with a 9.5” radius. 

 

Pickups are all hand-wound LSL single-coils—they sound just like an old Strat should, complete with 5-position switch to get every last wonderful bit of quack.   

 

Like every LSL, it was made almost entirely made by hand*—just the way you’d make it, if you could. As a matter of fact, company owner Lance Lerman says, “We build them all for ourselves but then we have to sell them.” You can tell.

 

*LSL doesn’t make the pots, tuners, capacitors and a few other small parts. They do make the body, neck, truss rod, control plate, pickups, pickguard, neck plate—they even mold their own dots!

 

Why We Like LSL Guitars

 

Imagine you unearthed a stash of electric guitars made in California in the 50s: lightweight ash, alder or sugar pine bodies; thin, nitrocellulose finishes; hand-wound pickups; hand-cut bodies and hand-shaped necks—pretty much hand everything. You’d be as excited about them as we are.

 

LSL is a small company. They work on each guitar until it’s finished. And not surprisingly, they sound great and feel like that old guitar your uncle has owned since high school. For everything you get, they’re reasonably priced. Maybe that’s why they never stay in the store for long.
