After getting the Studio Elite Burning Water, I was totally hooked on the Tylers. I started to neglect my other guitars and all I seemed to play was the Tyler. Obviously, I wanted another one and decided to sell a bunch of guitars. I wanted to get a Tyler Classic as there were rumors about production being stopped soon.
This Antarctic Mint Schmear had drawn my attention more than a year before I bought it. The cold looking finish was mindblowing and it was the Tyler I wanted badly for a while. A picture served as my desktop background at work for nearly a year. After some mail exchange with the good folks at Godlyd.com, the guitar was mine. The guitar I had been wanting was on it’s way to me. The finish in real life is even better then on pictures, it’s an amazing combination of colors.
Although both Tylers (the SE and Classic) are very similar in specs, they don’t sound the same, the Classic has a more open sound, more mids and sounds like a classic should. I sometimes swap the bridge humbucker in this one. I dig the original JB Trembucker it came with but I also have a Tyler Supercharged Studebacker that sounds great.
The specifications of the guitar are:
Alder body in Antarctic Mint Schmear
Maple neck (59 shape) with rosewood board and abalone inlays
Wilkinson VG300 trem
Sperzel locking tuners and Graphtech nut
Suhr V60LP singl coils, Seymour Duncan JB Trembucker OR Tyler Supercharged Studebacker
Volume, tone control for neck and middle, tone control for bridge
