Tim Reede Custom Guitars Introduces the Apollo

The Apollo sports a chambered body, Bigsby trem, and Lollar mini humbuckers.

Minneapolis, MN (September 25, 2014) -- After ten years in business, Tim Reede Custom Guitars has built a reputation for fine boutique acoustic guitars, but he has always had one foot in the electric guitar arena. Tim Reede now introduces a new electric guitar to his diverse line of hand crafted instruments. The Apollo is a chambered body electric guitar with a carved Alder top and back. The "C" shape Rock Maple neck has a 25.5” scale length. Cream binding wraps the body and the Rosewood fingerboard’s 22 jumbo frets. The honey burst paint job and the Bigsby tremolo give a nod to guitars of the past while the Gotoh 510 tuning machines, snake-head headstock and stylized sound holes give this guitar a distinct modern look. Lollar mini humbuckers give crisp clarity without any noise at all. As always, you can order custom features, so if you want a quilted Maple top or gold hardware just let us know.

Street price starts at $3129

There’s way more than blues-rock fodder buried in the crevices of the most overused scale in music.



  • Explain how chords are generated from scales.
  • Create unusual harmonies, chord progressions, bass lines, and melodies using the blues scale.
  • Demonstrate how music theory and musical intuition can coalesce to create unique sounds from traditional materials.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
