James Tyler Guitars Studio Elite on RigShare
First available in 1987, the Studio Elite embodied the essence of the L.A. studio scene. With contoured and cutaway neck, heel, and body area, plus a deeper cutaway on the treble side, the upper frets are easier to access. The lead/rhythm circuit and midboost preamp makes the Studio Elite one of the most versatile guitars around. Choose one of our many finishes for just the right look.
