A compact semi-hollow that features a new production method, upgraded electronics, and player-friendly price point.

Lakeland, FL (November 7, 2017) -- Sublime Guitars is set to launch their latest version of their semi-hollow line with the new Chieftain Deluxe. With a new production method, upgraded electronics and player friendly price-point, the new Chieftain is set to be their best version yet.

The Chieftain Deluxe retains Sublime’s take on the classic semi-hollow. Coming in thinner than most hollow bodies, the Chieftain has a very player friendly feel when standing but without loosing the warmth and depth of a traditional hollow body. The Chieftain features a molded maple body with maple center block, ebony fretboard with trapezoid inlays and gold hardware for a subtle art deco look. The Chieftain also comes equipped with two Porter designed H90 pickups for a warm tone that cuts through any mix.

The Chieftain Deluxe utilizes Sublime’s new approach to manufacturing and is what really sets the guitar apart. Their new Globally Crafted production, means having the neck, body and electronics for the Chieftain, all sourced from around the world and chosen solely by the quality of their craftsmanship rather than their price-point. By avoiding the single-factory, mass production approach, the Chieftain has a feel and sound unseen at its price point.

The new Chieftain Deluxe is available for pre-order at an MAP of $899. The Chieftain comes in two gloss finishes; Tux White and Onyx Black. With their new approach to production, Sublime is poised to shake up the guitar market with an instrument that punches above its weight class and is set to be the new standard for semi-hollows.
