Pure Salem Guitars Introduces the Gordo

The new models feature updated electronics and pickups.

Miami, FL (March 24, 2015) -- PureSalem Guitars adopts an inspired approach and attitude while honoring the electric guitars’ glorious past. It‘s simplicity in design. It’s wood, wire, and strings. It’s rock and roll, and not rocket science.

To quote David Fair (Half Japanese): “The idea is to put a pick in one hand and a guitar in the other and with a tiny movement rule the world!”

New for 2015 The PureSalem Gordo combines quality construction and components with off-kilter styling’s and transports us back to an era when Rock & Roll was free and memories yet to be made. Our new 2015 models come equipped with quality hardware and upgraded electronics such as Bigsby & Vibrola style vibratos, Grover Tuners, Vintage cloth wiring, carved headstock, new PS logo and our own Custom Wound “Jimmy, Mendiola and Pumpkin” Pickups. All models are available in lefty versions and at no additional mark-up.
