sublime indeed. Sublime Custom Guitars. its a Chiefttain.

The SGC Chieftain Semi-Hollow Body gives you the best of both worlds… the rich and woody resonance of a hollow body and the punch and sustain of a solid body.

The electronics are set with custom wound Sublime Prime pickups. The Graphtech Resomax tune-o-matic and stop bar tail piece lock in place and offer better tone transfer. The Graphtech TUSQ XL nut also helps with consistent tone transfer.

• 12” Radius Rosewood Fretboard
• Gloss Finish Maple Set Neck
• Traditional C Profile
• 24 3/4” Scale
• 22 Medium Jumbo Frets
• Pearl Dot Inlays

• Bridge Pickup: Custom Wound Sublime Prime Humbucker
• Neck Pickup: Custom Wound Sublime Prime Humbucker
• Graphtech Resomax Tune-O-Matic and Stop Bar Tailpiece
• 2 Volume Controls
• 2 Tone Controls
• Grover Tuners
• Graphtech TUSQ XL Nut


this is probably one of the finest semi hollows i have played. perfect fretting and and binding, the wiring you can see into the hole that it is perfect. everything is spared no expense. it just sings. i got turned onto these because i am the instrument tech at my church and there are three of them that i have worked on over the last while. the pickups are awesome, no need to change them.

they are a newer company and don't have a ton of dealers, but i am sure they are on the up and up.

Color me surprised, man- I'd have picked you for a Tomcat guy! SFA- Sweet, Fine Axe!

As it so happens, my favorite local store has some, but I haven't seen any of those in there.

Maybe the next time I wander in, I'll give 'em a look see...

I wanna go there and try out the new Supro amps. I'll take one of my own, sure, but it would also be a good opportunity to try the Sublimes. Maybe a Bell, too- the new tech there happens to be the guy who makes those...

I'm full up on 335s (originals) and even a copy or two, but the specs on these are pretty generic. Are these Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Estonian, what? And what's the price and where do they sell them and are we talking direct only or...no, wait, D-Traz said they were at his favorite store. And trashed, why are you pushing them so hard?

They have a shop that makes the higher-end/custom ones in the USA (haven't looked at prices), and it is my understanding everything else is made in Korea and/or Indonesia depending on the model. (Don't know which, though.). Those run about $600, as I recall.

i got it NOS for quite a bit under $500. this is way off of what you expect to get from Indonesia. i also have a feeling that they get tweaked on this side of the world. its a lot better that what you expect.

hell even the specs are nice. nut, bridge, tuners, etc. and the factory pickups are really nice.

for several reasons. one they are better than anything for the price. they are a young company and i would prefer to support a small business rather than a large corperation (only if it makes sense for quality and bang for the buck). they aren't in a lot of stores. look at their site, they have nine dealers. one of which is danny's, two are by me in florida.

i like it. people recommend things they like. just the same reason you push what you like.

wow very nice

Never heard of them

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Always good to see something I haven't heard of before around here. Looks like a nice guitar.

These are very interesting. I am just curious where to buy to see more info. It doesn't appear that they can be bought online yet. I could be wrong though.
Gibson LP traditional and DC standard, PRS S2 Custom 24, Schecter Banshee 7
EVH 5153, Mesa DR Tremoverb combo 2-2x12's
