Jason Z. Schroeder Guitars
Based in Redding, CA, Schroeder offers several different models and familiar body styles, but the two that caught our eyes and ears were the double-cut Stormy Monday and the single-cut Tweed Top. The Stormy Monday features a 5A quilted maple top, Honduran mahogany body and neck, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and quilted maple headstock side treatment and backplate. Built upon a Radio Lane prototype, The Tweed Top comes with a tweed top that sits on flamed Eastern maple top complete with a nitrocellulose finish. Also, it comes loaded with Seymour Duncan Antiquities. While Schroeder’s guitars embrace traditional roots, he adds some new flair with breathtaking and heavilycontoured tops, custom-made Schroeder stoptail bridges, stainless steel frets and coil splitting to provide a full range of tones.

MSRP–Stormy Monday $4700
MSRP–Tweed Top $4250
