DEMO MODEL! We have available a select few guitars we've used as dealer demos, artist loaners, review samples, etc. all at big savings! Early builds from 2015 with the old headstock.

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 medium C shape neck has a 9.5” rosewood fingerboard with medium frets. Porter vintage 1960s 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 Bubblegum Pink nitrocellulose lacquer and is complimented by an aged 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.
