California-based b3 Guitars has unveiled its new SL-K line of guitars.
A collaboration with Okada International Inc., the Japanese-built SL-K features a maple top, mahogany body and neck, an ebony headstock overlay and a Pau Ferro fretboard with Jescar 6105 frets.
Sonics on the SL-K come by way of a pair of b3 Original Design humbucking pickups, controlled by two volume and two tone knobs, a three-way toggle switch, and two push/pull coil taps.
The b3 SL-K guitar is available now – featuring Gotoh nickel hardware and in a choice of 10 different finishes – for $2995.
