Woodstock is Ukrainian company that make electric guitars and bass guitars. It was founded in Kyiv to create high-quality guitars for musicians all around the world. The company has been gathering the experience of the world guitar industry and adding its own innovative approach and solutions. Largely built by hand and with wood sourced locally in Ukraine, these guitars have had every detail taken care of.
The Old Boy guitars have all been built with classic vintage and custom shop T and ST style guitars in mind. Obviously the look, but also the feel of the guitars, the specific neck shapes, pickup configurations and sound. And for only a fraction of the price they come close to the woody tone and natural feel of those prestigious instruments.
This is a Tele-style guitar with classic specifications; an alder body, maple bolt on neck and fingerboard, 25.5" scale and 9.5" radius. However theres a few unique Woodstock touches that really elevate the guitar, firstly the striking finish with matching reversed headstock that adds so much character. This has been expertly weathered to give a genuine relic finish, take note of the beautiful lacquer cracks when the light catches them from the right angle. The maple neck is chunky with a very slight V shape and the half-size ashtray bridge and mini pickguard complete the look.
It's also been fitted with a TV Jones FilterTron style mini humbucker in the bridge position, giving clean, compressed treble and mids over a tight and controlled low-end. The tone overall is rich and woody with lots of sustain, and the combination of this mini humbucker and the classic Tele neck element turns out to be a great combination; very functional and versatile.
