Many of you are familiar with John Backlund's fantastic guitar designs, but very few have ever had the opportunity to own one - until now. We started with the Backlund 100 six months ago, it has now reached the hands of the supporters and it is getting rave reviews. Time for the next one, the Backlund 200.
You can reserve yours now for a pledge of only $200. This Special Limited Edition guitar will be ready to ship in February 2017 at a final price of only $1249 US. Each guitar will include a custom Backlund Hardshell case. Also available in LEFT-HAND
This new model will have the look and shape of the CAD line drawing - slightly different than the rendered image - with the new rounded headstock. We are revising the drawing to include the slanted neck pickup and neck heel.
