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. 

For those ready to explore, we present the Shelton Electric Instruments GalaxyFlite. Made for the intrepid aural astronaut, the GalaxyFlite delivers a universe of sounds. A brave instrument for a brave player.

The GalaxyFlite is a top quality offset with refined features and improvements. The GalaxyFlite is the offset you’ve always wanted with no compromises for playability or performance. The neck has a comfortable medium C and sports a 9.5” radius rosewood fingerboard with nicely detailed medium frets. Porter vintage wind pickups deliver awesome sound. We designed our own tone circuit that offers standard settings as well as series switching, a unique inductor circuit and Sweet Spot tone controls. A Mastery M1 bridge and MV vibrato mean trouble free performance while Gotoh staggered vintage tuners, and a Tusq XL nut make for rock solid tuning. The finish is Surf Green nitrocellulose lacquer and is complimented by an anodized pickguard. This GalaxyFlite has been Artifact Aged to resemble a well used instrument. It comes in a Deluxe G&G hardshell case.

The GalaxyFlite is an incredible offset guitar that offers more than the competition. Innovative tones, premium components, and great attention to detail set this one apart.

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.”
