Island Instruments Announces the Anzol 2.0

The model has a fixed set of specs and is produced in small runs.

Montreal, Canada (June 20, 2017) -- The inspiration for Nic Delisle’s Anzol model originally came from a Teisco el-120 pawnshop score. He set out to create an instrument with a similar vibe but that would be more versatile and made to the highest standards. The Anzol model has a fixed set of specs, and is batch produced in small runs, allowing for a much shorter wait time (8-10 weeks) compared to the 8-12 month wait for his fully custom work. The second incarnation of the Anzol has some telecaster mashed up in its DNA. It sports a custom proprietary top-loading bridge (string-thru option) in aircraft aluminum or cold rolled steel w/ 3 compensated brass saddles and an iconic bridge pickup matched with a unique gold foil in the neck, both handwound in the UK by Mojo Pickups. This iteration of the Anzol features a Poplar body that can be finished in any colour imaginable. It is paired with gorgeous, understated quartersawn roasted maple neck and fretboard with a hand rubbed satin finish for the maximum stability and comfort.


  • Poplar body with any colour Milk Paint finish and rear-painted acrylic pickguard
  • Quartersawn roasted maple neck with dual-action truss rod
