LSL Saticoy One B Candy Apple Red Metallic
The LSL One Series guitars are handmade in the USA, just like the original LSL models, but with features that offer tremendous savings. One Series guitars feature a thin, satin/matte nitrocellulose lacquer finish (rather than gloss), and satin-finished, roasted maple necks standard—features that make these boutique instruments much more affordable.
This LSL Saticoy One B Strat-style guitar comes with a lightweight pine body, an aged satin candy apple red metallic finish, vintage white/mint plastic parts, and less-than-shiny hardware. The hand-cut, roasted flame maple neck is a “medium C” shape, very comfortable, with 9.5” rosewood fretboard.
Pickups are all hand-wound by LSL single-coils that sound just like an old Strat should. A 5-position switch lets you get every last wonderful bit of quack.
Like every LSL, it was made almost entirely made by hand—just the way you’d make it, if you could. As a matter of fact, company owner Lance Lerman says, “We build them all for ourselves but then we have to sell them.” You can tell.

Why We Like LSL Guitars
Imagine you unearthed a stash of electric guitars made in California in the '50s: lightweight ash, alder or sugar pine bodies; thin, nitrocellulose finishes; hand-wound pickups; hand-cut bodies and hand-shaped necks—pretty much hand everything. You’d be as excited about them as we are.
LSL is a small company. They work on each guitar until it’s finished. And not surprisingly, they sound great and feel like that old guitar your uncle has owned since high school. For everything you get, they’re reasonably priced. Maybe that’s why they rarely stay in the store for long.
