Luxxtone Guitars Chopper Series and El Machete
Luxxtone Guitars showed off several custom models at the LA Amp Show. The Chopper Series boasts various body-styles inspired by classic Fenders, while the El Machete has a body-style and appointments similar to a Charvel “super strat.” “The main goal with all our guitars is to give them a worn-in feel with tons of vibe—like it's been played for years,” says Luxxtone’s Jerry Bizon. “We specialize in nicely-worn necks that are kind of dirty and have rounded edges with great attention to detail in the fretwork and playability.” All models feature their custom fabricated hardware, bridges, and jack sockets that are exclusive to Luxxtone. While they generally use Motor City pickups, Luxxtone is willing to use anything a player wants. All of the models and options are custom, and the typical price range for their handmade instruments is between $1900 and $2700.
