Classic body styles. Amazing quality. Exceptional value. May we present the Austin Super 6 Electric Guitar line?
“The first electric guitar an entry-level player buys is crucial,” states SLM senior vice president Chris Meikle. “Naturally, he or she doesn’t want to spend a lot of money. But that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve a great-sounding, easy-to-play instrument that will get them making music. With that in mind, we set out to create a line of instruments that provides the beginner with the instrument they deserve at the price point they can afford.”
The six solid-body electrics are made from materials not usually found on entry-level guitars, including Tune-O-Matic Bridges, Stop Tailpieces, Mother of Pearl inlays, Humbucking or P90 Pickups, and vintage style tuners. The necks are made from mahogany. They list between $299 to $339. As with every Austin guitar, they are all setup by hand by the expert luthiers at St. Louis Music’s headquarters.
“These are all balanced correctly, and have Rosewood fretboards that are easy to play and feel great,” Meikle adds. “We set out to deliver a great looking, proper sounding guitar at a good price and we believe we’ve achieved all those goals with the Super 6.”
