THE VINTAGE

CARDIFF

The guitar that never lived up to it’s name but accidentally became the guitar to spawn the Surf Music genre of the 60’s as well as inspiring countless Indie and Alternative Rock bands over the decades. We get the good times rolling with a select Alder body combined with our popular Medium “C” profile, quater-sawn maple neck which sports a lovely Indian Rosewood fretboard with a 7.25″ – 9.5″ compound radius. We install a set of our Iconic Revolution JM Series pickups to provide all the offset tone you’re looking for!

Featuring a select Alder body finished with a thin nitrocellulose Lacquer in your choice of genuine vintage colors. The Cardiff is a beautiful recreation of those showy CBS Era models that so many offset players love!
