A trend that has become more and more common in recent times, carbon fiber guitars are starting to become a real manufacturing option. Developed in Johannesburg, South Africa father and son duo Roger and Oliver Lambson, the Lassie is a one-piece body and neck with a maple fretboard that is then satin finished.
The through-neck design should allow for high levels of natural sustain, even if the innovate guitar design makes you question it. Coming in at 25.5″ scale length, it should feel right at home for most Fender players, and even has a “zero” fret string guide. Grover locking tuners and locking strap buttons help keep this guitar locked onto you and your preferred tuning from the time you pick it up.
Two Porter mini humbuckers, a hipshot fixed bridge, and medium-jumbo stainless steel frets round out the great features on this ultra-playable and ultra-reliable instrument. Lastly, controls include a three-way switch and volume and tone pots giving this Fender-sized guitar a bit of a PRS and Gibson-style feel as well.
