cajun-gent

A sound as sultry as a southern summer night and an action as smooth as a New Orleans riverboat gambler, Melancon Guitars Cajun Gentleman unites retro and nouveau in one gorgeous and incredible sounding package. T.V. Jones Filtertrons™ and a Bigsby™ tailpiece combined with a classic control set-up that Chet would be proud of are then artfully engineered into a highly chambered select Swamp Ash body providing the player with a broad array of tonal variations. For the total vibe, might we suggest optional items such as an overcarve neck to really capture the fit and feel a real “Gentleman” possesses and a hand selected AAAAA Maple top for some serious flash. Killer Looks and Killer Tone for the sharp-dressed man!!!
