Hot off the bench: a very fun Counterpunch with English Bulldog paw prints etched into its hand hammered aluminum top and steel pickguard. This one has a super thick Pau Ferro neck with Pau Ferro fingerboard and an M-tone bolt-through bridge. With its high wind Lollar Imperial bridge pickup and low wind Imperial neck pickup, this puppy absolutely howls.
Here’s a new custom order Counterpunch. This one has three Lollar Pickups: neck and bridge are Imperials and the center is an El Rayo. What an awesome combination. This guitar has a hand-hammered aluminum top with an etched circle motif, mahogany body, stained maple neck, ebony fretboard and lots of little custom details.
Check out this new super custom Aluminum Top Counterpunch. A great player that is full of cool electronics. It has El Rayos by Lollar Pickups, an Uno Mos booster by Homebrew Electronics, HBE and a Bumble Buzz by Union Tube & Transistor for Third Man Records. An alder body and a Pao Ferro neck and fingerboard combined with all that steel and aluminum makes for a guitar the just screams. Oh yeah, the big red button is a stutter switch. If you turn everything on at once, it blows up the world (in a good way).
Here’s a pretty custom TKO, pinstriped by VooDoo Larry for my friend Knuckles, a killer Portland player. It’s got an underwound Lollar Imperial in the neck and a Special T in the bridge. Smokin’!
Uber-custom industrial M-tone Counterpunch has a hand-formed aluminum top over an Alder body. Hidden inside the depths of this machine are a Coldcraft Fiesta Fuzz and and Apple Butter Auto Wah controlled by a Shadow kill pot. Every surface is meticulously hand worked and custom features abound, including the pickup covers, the 12th fret marker, the metal headstock veneer and the leaking oil paint job on the back. Of course it has a killer neck and the smoothest frets you’ve ever played. Sounds? Yup, it’s got a ton, and they’re all good.
Here it is: the totally custom M-tone Boki Bass. Stereo, 22 frets, bird’s eye maple and Macassar ebony neck, super light one piece swamp ash body and a freakin’ cool paint job if I say so myself! Hipshot hardware and Lollar pickups. Huge sound and big sustain with great note separation. You can play big chords on this baby and hear every note. We like it.
New space themed custom Counterpunch Thinline has meteorite-embedded knobs, night sky sparkle finish inside and out, comet trail sound hole, and glow in the dark side markers and an awesome vibe. Alder body, maple top, Seymour Duncan limited edition nickel Humbucker from Hell, Pau Ferro neck, Hipshot tuners, hammered aluminum guard and flat wound strings. It’s super light and really resonant. It was a tough one to send off to its rightful owner – I miss it already.
We just got back from the LA Amp & Custom Guitar Show. Some of the guitars we took to the show are now available on the M-tone For Sale page. These are great instruments – pick one up while you can.
Brand new M-tone with gold sparkle over gold pearl in a custom body shape. It has an aluminum guard with Lollar Tweeds, an alder body, Goncalo Alves neck and Asian rosewood fingerboard. Not only does it look luxurious and hot at the same time, it also plays like your very best dream.
A custom M-tone order can get you a pretty dreamy guitar. You’re looking at a custom thinline Counterpunch with an alder body with maple cap and Lollar Regal and El Rayo pickups. It rocks, it twangs, and it will even do mellow. The middle position is an incredible combination of sweet and twangy – never heard that tone in any guitar before.
