The LsL Saticoy took on life as a modern rendition of a holy grail 1954 S-Style guitar. LsL's hard work to get the true vintage tone & feel along with a few improvements is something to be appreciated. Its body shape is slightly different from a Strat, with its hand-shaped contours making for a smoother, more flowing shape. All LsL guitars are Nitrocellulose lacquered with the finish applied as thin as possible, Hand-sanded, buffed and then cracked to allow the guitar to sing.
Saticoy models also have the lower tone knob controlling the tone on the bridge pickup alone while the middle control knob controls the tone of the middle and neck pickups.
Not a partscaster guitar, like many in its price range, this guitar features all the great LsL components & craftsmanship that they're known & loved for. The Body, hand-shaped neck, pickguard, bridge, saddles, truss rods, pickups, pickguards, control plate, neck plate and molded fingerboard dots are all made in-house!
Each neck is hand shaped. They lay on the thinnest possible nitrocellulose lacquer finish and that finish is then weather checked. This creates a very airy, open, articulate tone that is then enhanced by LsL's hand-wound pickups.
It is as close as you can get to achieving the tone, playability, look and feel of a great vintage guitar.
