We're proud to be a new dealer for Fidelity Guitars (UK). Beautiful luthier-crafted, handmade instruments that combine retro looks with modern playability and quality.
Catalogue style, modern moves
The JB model features a 24.75" scale and 22 frets, for those players more at home in Kalamazoo than California. As well as the usual premium tonewoods, aged nitrocellulose finishes and hand-wound Mojo Pickups, our new version adds a carved top-edge for sharper looks, as well as more versatile switching options.
