LesCaster Slide Guitar
Our set-neck LesCaster naturally lends itself to a great Blues tone, so we imagined- what would make a perfect LesCaster Slide guitar? Titanium Saddles and Bridge for the clarity, harmonics, and sustain. A Chicago Steel pickup from Lollar for the cut and a Gold Foil pickup in the neck for that Hound Dog sound. And when the sawdust settled…
That Blues Slide Tone!
The secret sauce is in the blender pot. Adjust it ‘down’ and you’ll blend in more of the Lollar Chicago Steel, it’s like having an active treble boost without the grain of electronics. Turn the blender ‘up’ and you’ll dial in more of the Gold Foil, fattening up your tone. The LesCaster Slide is very pick dynamic and the wide string spacing (Strat-like at the bridge) makes for easier individual string muting with your fingers.
Seriously, this Neck…
looks classic, but inside it’s full-on best of today! The Ebony fingerboard is glued with the best epoxy available and with THREE of our custom Titanium reinforcement rods, this neck has serious strength and tone! The neck profile started with a ’57 Jr back shape, for a fat neck that fills your hand and is very stable, and we flattened the freboard radius for fast slide work.
The best neck in the world won’t live to its potential without the strongest, tightest neck joint. This neck tenon is sized like an extra-long LP guitar. Lots of glue area! And check out the contoured transition that’s both strong and easier to slide to the high frets!
