The Reprobate

About this model:

The Reprobate is a more off-quilter design, but one that handles all required duties with the requisite aplomb. With an air and design sensibility coming from the left field, this guitar has won the hearts of the more open-minded Odessa player. Compact and balanced, the Reprobate offers all of the tonal shades you expect from an Odessa. A durable workhorse that works especially well as a baritone (as they all do), or with any other scale-length you’d care to suggest. Discreet contouring and either a raw or powder-coated pickguard set this guitar off perfectly.


Body timbers – Ash, Oak, Horse Chestnut, Black Walnut etc.

Neck timbers – usually Maple, but happy to use other timbers, just ask.

Fingerboard timbers – Ebony, Bog Oak, Pau Ferro, Marblewood, Black Walnut etc

Scale Length – happy to accommodate most scale lengths, just ask.

Hardware – essentially your choice, but Hipshot tuners and bridges work well with my builds.

Pickups – again, your choice, but favourites include Fletcher pickups, Lollars, and many others.

Good quality hardware include CTS pots and Switchcraft switches Pickguards are hand-cut from aluminium and either powder-coated black or left raw.

Finishes – Milk paint, which allows for the grain and texture of the timber to be seen, or an oiled finish.

Hard case included.

Single pickup version and left-handers available.

Starting price: £1200
