If you’ve been following along with guitar news, you’ve likely heard that musician (and Sylvester’s brother) Frank Stallone has launched a new guitar company. Frank Stallone Guitars and their first instrument, the Tiger, aim to bring high quality guitars to players at a much more affordable price. The Tiger is sold direct over the internet, allowing for the company to cut out the middlemen aka retailers like Guitar Center.
The Tiger brings familiar aesthetics and high quality craftsmanship down to a sub-$700 price, aiming to compete with the higher end American-made offerings from Gibson, Fender, or PRS.
The double cutaway body is made of Mahogany with a Flamed Maple veneer and Mahogany C-shaped neck. The Ebony fingerboard features 24 medium frets, a 25 inch scale length, and 16 inch radius. Many of these premium features are hard to find on a guitar that costs under $1000. A stop tail and tune-o-matic style bridge sit beneath two proprietary humbuckers, made in the South Korean factory that blend classic electric guitar tones. A standard volume-tone wiring harness and 3-way selector switch round out the features on this beautiful guitar!
