Guitars

The Triune Crème Model

The Flagship Artist Model Guitar.  Tonality embodying the best of three worlds, conjuring thick rich tones of that Allman Bros and Dickey Betts Era. Sweet soulful fusion jazz tones of Larry Carlton, and those skanky notched tones of that 70’s Funk Era. Les Paul, 335 and Strat, it’s all here without compromise at your fingertips with a flip of a switch. Playability and feel, along with tone, and striking good looks collimate together to make a guitar stands out and be what it is. 

 

Only Master Grade Woods are used, all hand selected for appearance, weight, moisture content and most importantly tonal resonance. The One Piece Honduras Mahogany chambered body has a bookmatched hand carved Exhibition Grade Maple Top and the quarter sawn 25” scale Mahogany Neck is matched with a Ziricote Fingerboard. SIngleton/Duncan  pickups “Powers” this guitar along with Sperzal tuners, a Hipshot tremolo and Dunlop straploks for hardware. We also employ Temper Tuning to this beauty, making every effort to make this guitar the absolute best and most versatile instrument available on the planet.

Del Prime Model

This model is bent on classic tradition with a very cool modern vibe - a single cut Axe that delivers richness in every note. With the 25” scale neck, you’ll notice the comfort of playing as you create textures unique to your style of playing.

 

As the artist, you will shine, as you are free to paint like never before, be it in live performances or studio settings. This guitar really sings! A one piece mahogany body with hallow chambers and an exotic hand carved top will deliver tones that will cause you never want to put it down.

 

* In Natural  Mango Top with  3rd Single Coil Option *

Satari Rising Model

The Satari Rising Model is my newer baby and was not designed as a guitar for the public but was originally built for my own personal working instrument.

 

Nonetheless, other musicians began to take notice and really liked what they saw and heard. So here it is available for those who want something truly unique.

 

The Satari Rising is 25.5” scale version of the Triune Crème with the added “JimVibe” reverse headstock. It takes me back as it carries me forward.................. What can I say "Killer Axe"!

* In Artic Nights Blue with Ghost Sys/Gold Option *

Forecast Model

 This is my way of doing a Strat! I always loved that “skank”, that “funk”, that “grit” that comes from those three single coil pickups. An ash body and a maple neck - man, can you beat that sound?

 

So with that premise in mind there had to be an axe that would bring you back to that 70’s sound so many of the guitar gods of the time were using.

 

The Forecast is the guitar that’ll take you there.  Just a straight up alder or ash body to deliver super clean tones with a “sparkle” for which a Singleton is best known. The Forecast will take you into heavy weather and allow you to maneuver in and around the deepest of waters and cut through the mix!  

 

A classic tone and a modern look to ensure all eyes are on YOU!!

* In Satin Finish with Buckeye Burl Top and Custom Wood Knobs  Options*

Crossroads Model

* In Trans Orange with Quilted Maple Top Option*

 There has to be one in every company's line and this is ours! What name could be better suited for it other than the “Crossroads” model? And it is exactly that!

 

So at NAMM 2006 it premiered in the lineup with other models to make its statement to the Country and Blues scene. This instrument is very traditional in many ways and yet modern as well. The hollowed Louisiana Swamp Ash body gives her the tone that’s incredibly clear and ambient with just the right amount of highs. The tone is then extended with the use of 2 custom Singleton Wolfetone pickups. Balanced just the way it should be between the neck and bridge output. A 4-way switch is also added, to give more tonal flexibility. This baby really sounds good, no matter what kind of music you play.

Cool Bop Archtop Model

This is the "guitar players" Guitar – I am extremely proud of this model - a hollow body Jazz Archtop which does not  feedback! A Guitar that delivers one the fattest, rich tones you’d ever want to hear from a small body Archtop. I had this axe in mind for a many years, but it wasn’t realized until I sat down and talked with Recording artist Norman Brown, who was playing a GB10 (as many of the Smooth Jazz Players were). He readily liked the Triune Crème and wanted to know if we offered a jazz box. We then put things in motion to create the Norman Brown Signature Model. One important element  that Norman wanted in addition to a real “big box” tone was a guitar that would not feedback during live performances. We took note and came back several months later with a 15” body guitar rich and "phat" with tone, with a Quartersawn 5 pc. Mahogany neck with an Ziricote fingerboard that allowed him to float up and down the neck. A Single Custom designed Singleton Pickup by Seymour Duncan, with a Graphtech Ghost Hexophonic Acoustic System. This guitar comes alive with a voice uniquely its own.  

The Cool Bop is the guitar was born from that  Archtop. It is truly a masterpiece of tone and style that “sings” like only a Singleton can. The hand carved Exhibition Grade Maple Top with Hemlock back and sides combine a richness that can best be described as "voluptuous beauty".

Basses

Sensei5  and Sensei4 Model

Sensei5

* In OC Orange Burst with Quilted Maple Top Option*

Sensei4

This instrument sets the “New Standard”!  In the early 1970’s, Alembic started the trend of blending exotic woods together to create true works of art. 

 

The basses incorporated active pickups and preamps, producing a whole new dimension of sound, and builders have pushed that envelope ever since. 

 

The Sensei restores this standard of excellence.  The Sensei bass adds an exotic touch to a traditional platform to give an acoustic tone that is rich and full. 

 

The active circuitry augments that acoustic tone and creates versatility for any style of playing.  The same philosophy for building guitars is the focus for all our basses. 

 

We use only the best tone woods to produce the perfect color and allow the electronics to shape that color. 

 

You can hear all the nuances of your fingers through this instrument, which creates an excellent tool of expression for the individual artist. 

 

The weight, shape, and design of the body, plus an extremely comfortable and familiar neck, contribute to the excellence and artistry of this instrument.
