Kelton Swade has been producing what he calls AVR guitars – Authentic Vintage Replicas – for some time now and has gained a devoted following amongst high-end players like Keith Urban and Vince Gill.
This example is a reproduction of a guitar produced in 1957, complete with its life experiences. It’s very resonant, has lots of tone, and plays very well. Build quality is high.
