Designed for and in conjunction with Slowdive front man and guitarist Neil Halsted, The Unorthodox harnesses the looks of a classic off-set guitar, but adds the performance of a modern, high-end instrument.


The design brief given to us was "A Telecaster  - meets a Jazzmaster - meets our Old Nick Paradox".

Built to the highest specs using the best parts, materials and construction techniques.


Following our standard construction philosophy of a one-piece, quarter sawn Sapele Mahogany through-neck. This aids in transferring vibration evenly, across the whole frequency range, through the entire instrument which helps increase sustain and eliminate dead spots.

"It's a beautiful guitar and it plays great. The workmanship is absolutley second to none. Lots of options with the pickups and controls, it's really versatile" 

- Neil Halstead, Slowdive
