JCraft Vintage Series S-3VC Relic Strat Electric Guitar

JCraft Vintage Series S-3VC Relic Strat Electric Guitar

JCraft S-3VC Antique Vintage 2022

The S-3 Vintage is JCraft's high spec S Style guitar.  The S-3 is equipped with JCraft Crossroads 60's Alnico Pickup Set for a vintage tone.  It is made with Poplar body paired with maple neck and Laurel fretboard - a similar tonewood to rosewood, only with a darker shade.  Poplar has been used on many big brand guitars and has been a great alternative to Alder.  For 2022, the relic design on the Antique models have been improved. 

The components and hardware of the S-3 remain the same with a vintage 6-point tremolo with bent steel saddle for a vintage bite, combined with a big steel block for increased sustain. The neck is finished with synthetic bone nut to ensure excellent vibration transfer on both ends of the string.  At the same time, synthetic material ensures consistency, similar to Graphtech engineered nuts.  While the aesthetics and hardware are vintage in style, the fingerboard radius is a modern 14" radius for better playability and can be setup for low action.

With it's exceptional craftsmanship, and affordable price, you can't go wrong with the S-3.
