Übercaster Guitar

Please call 773.489.4830 or email info@specimenproducts.com to discuss details and make arrangements for your commission.


The Übercaster was first made for a client who simply knew what he wanted from a guitar, so we quickly conjured up a treasure map. I am happy to report that it was well within reason, so I made it , and here it is.

It is a bit more elaborate than the usual request, but it is comfy and intuitive, and while building it, I thought, “what will be done with this?”

This guitar truly has the tonal qualities I have been raving about for years to all my students and anybody else who will listen.

The NON-adjustable neck reinforcements are truly a stunning feature. They are stable against climate shift or warping. They don’t rattle. They don’t break or strip out. They do not create wolf resonances, the ones that keep people awake in aggravation.

I invite you to hear and feel the performance of a guitar made this way. Proper geometry must be crafted into a neck. Then it will sing for many generations.
