The Story


We're calling it the Wavemaster due to the shape of the pickguard. The design originated a few years ago while prototyping the Supro "Island Series" of guitars. Around the same time we were hot-rodding what became the island series, we started dabbling in some new offset designs originally intended to replace the XKE model. Lines got blurred, a little Surfcaster thrown in with some Ric and a sprinkling of mojo, the Wavemaster emerged.

Ultimately the guitar was built around the amazing Supro electronics, resurrected and painstakingly perfected by Ken @ Roadhouse Pickups in Portland, OR. They may look and fit like a humbucker (and have a goofy center screw), but they are true single coils that are extremely low noise and high performance. Tonally, they sound somewhere between a P90 and an overwound Tele bridge pickup. They are hifi, produce output comparable to a humbucker and are so good, we designed a guitar just for them.
