Super Bee Series

The Super Bee is my attempt to capture the feel of a vintage muscle car in a guitar.  Simple, powerful, eye-catching looks and fantastic performance.  Don’t worry if vintage MOPAR colours and stripes aren’t your ‘thing’, a more modest colour palate is also available.

Available in three styles:
