NEW! TimeFite Archer!

Click any picture for supersize view!

The TimeFlite Archer is a grand tribute to the vintage instruments that powered everything from Chicago blues to the 60s garage band explosion. Unique aesthetics are coupled with an equally unique sonic signature. If your aim is a complex, classic look and sound, the Archer will deliver.

The secret to the TimeFlite Archer’s unique tone is a solid spruce top. The spruce imparts a mellow yet lively tone with great acoustic response. It is coupled to a chambered mahogany back for great sustain.  The C shaped neck features a 9.5” radius bound pau ferro fingerboard and polished medium frets. A pair of specially developed Lindy Fralin Noiseless Big Foil pickups dish out tone. We hook the pickups to an Emerson Custom 5 way harness for a variety of sounds. A Mastery M1 bridge and a trapeze tailpiece mean top notch quality while Sperzel Sound-Lok tuners, and a Tusq XL nut make for reliable performance. The finish is an aged natural nitrocellulose lacquer on the top complimented by a  walnut stain on the back and sides and a 1 ply tortoise pickguard. It comes in a Deluxe G&G hardshell case.

The Archer is a guitar that harkens back to a more authentic age. The sound of Chicago factories as well as Chicago blues. There’s nothing else quite like it out there.

What customers say about their Shelton Electric Instruments:
