LSL Saticoy One B HSS - Aztec Gold
The LSL One Series 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 finish (rather than gloss), limited relic treatments, and satin-finished, roasted maple necks standard.
This lightweight Saticoy One B features a lightweight alder body with lightly-distressed Gold satin metallic finish. The neck is roasted flame maple with a comfortable "Medium C" profile and maple fingerboard.
Pickups are all hand-wound by LSL. Vintage white plastic parts and less-than-shiny hardware complete the lived-in look. 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.
*LSL doesn’t make the pots, tuners, capacitors and a few other small parts. They do make the body, neck, truss rod, control plate, pickups, pickguard, neck plate—they even mold their own dots!

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. And not surprisingly, they sound great and feel like that old guitar your uncle has owned since high school. You’d be as excited about them as we are.
