Details

Handmade in Sumner, Maine, the Contoured Legend is CP Thornton's take on the classic single-cut solid-body electric, albeit with a few tweaks for comfort and modern playability. The body and neck are both solid mahogany, providing plenty of warmth and sustain, while the bolt-on neck joint alleviates the age-old headstock break problem so often found on similar looking vintage instruments. 6-in-line tuners help keep the tuning stable, while Chuck's impeccable fretwork paired with the MojoAX Wraparound keep the intonation dead-on up and down the neck. It also features belly, arm, and neck pocket contours for comfort and extended playability (plus it cuts down on the weight; always a bonus!). Rounding things out are the Bareknuckle Mule Humbuckers, a vintaged voiced set that are just as pretty clean as they are snarly when played through an overdriven amp. If you love the sound of those old solid-body single-cuts but want some modern creature comforts and unique style to boot, this two-tone Goldtop Contoured Legend might be the one.
