THE ICONIC

CARLSBAD VM

The Carlsbad Vintage Modern takes our own design into a new level of playability, with a sleek and flatter fretboard and some hot pickup choices. We’ve addressed many of the issues that plagued the classic offset design while maintaining a firm hold on the nostalgic look that has made them so revered. The Iconic Carlsbad is the first of many exclusive models to come.
