The Osprey guitars are built around the idea that the ultimate electric guitar should respond in a similar fashion to a great acoustic instrument. All switched sounds should be an extension of the instrument's primary voice, and the most subtle intentions of the player should translate to differing tones. The voice can be shaped through wood selection and internal design, and every change will be heard through the Slug Bucker pickups.

The Osprey Solid sits firmly between a great LP and a great T. The feel and balance are an extension of our CTS model, while the tone has all of the clarity and bite of a tele with the authority and push of an LP.

The Osprey Standard is the perfect guitar to cover any gig. It has two internal "lungs", one open and one sealed, which open up the tone while lightening the load. The Standard features a mix of Gotoh and Hipshot hardware, a selection of our favorite woods, and the addition of a split switch for true single coil tones.

The Osprey Deluxe opens the sound even more with a second soundport, and slightly different lung geometry. It is available in a wide range of beautiful woods and finishes, and is dressed up with body binding and mother of pearl diamond inlays. The electronics are installed through the treble soundport, and are identical to the Osprey Standard.

The Osprey T is a hybrid of the Osprey Solid and CTS guitars. CTS neck specs, Osprey body, and a hybrid electronics setup with 5-way switching.
