Luddite Pleb Guitar

Please call 773.489.4830 or email to discuss details and make arrangements for your commission.


Like all Specimen instruments, the Pleb electric six string guitar is completely hand made and finished in Chicago.

The luddite PLEB is my new budget model. It sports all of the features you expect from a Specimen guitar but none of the adornment or tricky business I often get into. Of course it sports the fantastic non adjustable steel reinforcement all Specimen instruments enjoy. A single P90 pickup in either neck or bridge position provides a nice robust output. A precision wraparound bridge/tailpiece gets the job done with accuracy and simplicity. A trapezoidal paddle headstock is plain and simple. I made one quartet in a two tone sunburst. I couldn’t resist making a second quartet with various opalescent metallic bodies to round out an octet for this first run.

Come join me in the parlor with a PLEB in hand.
