The Shelton Electric Instruments SkyFlite IV offers traditional tones with amazing versatility. The ultimate recording guitar. Because the top is never high enough, this is SkyFlite.

The SkyFlite IV is a Swiss army knife. Four pickups, 3 push pull pots, and a 5 way switch for an amazing variety of tones. A Porter S90 and Vintage Custom S are at the bridge, Porter 1960s in the middle, and a Porter 1950s at the neck to offer a player an amazing range of tones.  The pickups are hooked to a custom harness that offers traditional 5 way switching along with versatile series blend and push pull tones. The medium C shape neck has a 9.5” maple fingerboard with medium frets. A vintage style vibrato, Gotoh staggered vintage tuners, and a Tusq XL nut deliver reliable performance. The finish is metallic Penny Copper 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.
