Although it might be somewhat unfair to give in to favouritism, in this case we are unable to do so. The Tangerine Burst is essentially a slightly more faded washed Cherry. Although only a subtle departure, it really kicks things off nicely.
Upon picking up this instrument you immediately feel the urge to channel a young Eric Clapton on the verge of rock stardom with the Blues breaker band.
The tone is so on point it’s almost impossible not to play anything and sound like the grand maestro himself.
As with all its contemporaries and counterparts from the new custom range, it features period correct appointments a most importantly the all exclusive Custombucker pickups. The neck comes in very slim and eminently playable.
At £5300 this truly is a treasure and a guitar for life.
