Christian Lopez is an artist you will hear a lot about in the future. Called “best newcomer” at the Americana Music Fest 2015 by Rolling Stone, Christian is an artist to watch. Christian has used his Shelton Electric Instruments onstage all over the world as the band tours in support of their new release “Onward”. The album was produced by Grammy Award winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Rival Sons) and is available for purchase at Christian’s website. Shelton Instruments are  tailor made for the band’s classic sound. We’re thrilled to support the Christian Lopez Band and look forward to hearing these guitars in action!

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. 

Music can be time travel. A song can take you back to a whole other time in your life. A sound can send you rocketing to the future. If you’re ready for the journey, TimeFlite can take you anywhere you want to go.

The TimeFlite takes you down to the bare essentials. This one sports a Fat C shaped neck with a 9.5 inch radius and nicely detailed medium frets. A set of Porter Vintage wind single coils twang and bark. We hook the pickups to an Emerson Custom 5 way harness for a variety of tones. The body is ash for great tone. A vintage style string through bridge with compensated saddles, Gotoh staggered vintage tuners, and a Tusq XL nut deliver reliable performance. The finish is Daphne Blue nitrocellulose lacquer and is set off by an anodized pickguard. This TimeFlite has been Artifact Aged to resemble a well used instrument. It comes in a Deluxe G&G hardshell case.

TimeFlite recalls a legendary era when all you needed was your guitar, a cord, and a great amp. This is the real deal: authentic looks, feel, and tone.

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.”
