Lion Special

A wraptail mahogany machine designed with Chris Traynor

The Lion Special was inspired by our good friend Chris Traynor, who wanted to have a Lion-style guitar with a mahogany body, intonatable wraparound bridge and angled neck. The Lion Special delivers all that and more, with a “low tension” feel to the strings, sustain for days, and a pair of Lollar Imperial humbuckers or P-90s—all wrapped in your choice of classic nitro finishes.
