Steel String Guitars

Cardinal Series

Taking inspiration from the Original Series, the Cardinal Series extends our commitment in providing outstanding instruments off-the-rack. Available in Raffles and Victoria shapes, these guitars are individually-voiced and come pre-installed with L.R. Baggs Element Active System and PLEK Setup – equipping players with a gig-ready high-performance great-value guitar.

Cardinal Series | High Performance, Great Value

Looks Good on Paper, Performs Better In Person

Featuring a full solid construction using seasoned hand selected tonewoods, Dovetail neck joint, Carbon Fiber Reinforced Mahogany neck, wooden binding, Nitrocellulose finish and high quality components, these guitars are good on paper. But what truly makes the Cardinal Series exceptional is that they are handmade in small batches, ensuring that their performance exceeds expectations.

Individually Handvoiced

All Cardinal Series guitars are carefully handvoiced to ensure that each piece is responsive, rich in projection, and full of character – something that you rarely see off-the-rack. You might get a nice piece from similar builds, but with the Cardinal Series, you will always get something better than you expected.

Gig Ready Fresh Out The Box

Comes PLEK Setup and pre-installed with L.R. Baggs Element Active System, the Cardinal Series provides players a gig-ready guitar any given day. Featuring a very fine setup fresh out from the box, you can just take these guitars out and plug straight. Together with the new premium Tone Remastered Gig Bag, you can conveniently and safely bring the Cardinal Series to your next show.

Best Guitar For The Price

The Cardinal Series offers players a great guitar more than what the price tag suggests. Handmade full solids that are individually-voiced, PLEK setup, pre-installed with an L.R. Baggs Element Active System, and ships with a premium gig bag – all of these at a price that you can easily take from the rack.
