Crafted in the USA, Shelton Electric Instruments are a tribute to the craftsmanship of iconic vintage guitars. Truly premium instruments, these guitars display bold styling and careful attention to the things that matter most to guitar players. Not another clone brand, Shelton Electric Instruments offer a look, feel, and tone you just can’t get from other guitars. 

The Shelton Electric Instruments SkyFlite is made for those that aspire to greatness. A perfect blend of familiar feel and innovative features. Because the top is never high enough, this is SkyFlite.

The SkyFlite is a classic reimagined. The Fat C shape neck has a 9.5” maple fingerboard with medium frets. Porter vintage 1950s wind pickups have the classic chime and quack we all love. The pickups are hooked to a custom Emerson harness that offers traditional 5 way switching along with versatile series blend tones. A vintage style vibrato, Gotoh staggered vintage tuners, and a Tusq XL nut deliver reliable performance. The finish is classic Seafoam Green nitrocellulose lacquer and is complimented by an anodized pickguard. This SkyFlite has been Artifact Aged to resemble a well used instrument. It comes in a Deluxe G&G hardshell case.

The SkyFlite is as comfortable as it good looking. You’ll feel right at home as soon as you start to play it.

What customers say about their Shelton Electric Instruments:

“From the moment I touched the instrument I liked it, but from the moment I played it, it was love over the top.”

“I love testing electric guitars for sustain and clarity when played acoustically. This passed all the tests, up, down and across the neck. But plug this in and real magic begins. The switch and the controls permit dialing in a wide range of tones with my little finger.”

“Most impressive is the touch sensitivity of the guitar. Great to play and great to play with. A thousand happinesses to you, like those you brought to me.”

“I am completely satisfied - even my wife mentioned how good it sounded!”

“The best JM I’ve ever picked up.”

“The guitar is badass.”
