PureSalem Guitars Announces the Tom Cat

Named after a Muddy Waters tune, the Tom Cat is a set-neck guitar loaded with Kent Armstrong P-90 pickups.

Miami, FL (October 21, 2013) -- 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.

“The idea is to put a pick in one hand and a guitar in the other and with a tiny movement rule the world!” – David Fair / Half Japanese

Named after the Muddy Waters song of the same name from his influential 1968 ELECTRIC MUD album the PureSalem TOM CAT combines exceptional value, quality construction and components along with off-kilter styling’s and transports us back to an era when Rock & Roll was free and memories yet to be made.
