Esoterik DR3 Hand Crafted Electric Guitar

Esoterik Guitars expands on the Dave Refett signature series with a third and lightweight model, the Esoterik DR3.

Esoterik DR3

The DR3 model follows the same super strat construction as other Esoterik guitars, they are handmade in San Luis Obispo California following exacting specs.

According to Esoterik Guitars, "every step was taken and improved upon to generate the highest quality guitar that clearly out performs while featuring curves and contours that are undeniably sexy."

One unique feature of the DR3 guitar is its lightweight alder body, shaped into the same double cutaway DR signature body contour. Since DR1 and DR2 utilized mahogany wood for the body, it was surprising to find that Esoterik opted for alder. Having an alder body, the DR3 is closer to the specifications of a traditional Fender Stratocaster. It maintains the same contour as the other guitars in this series. having a carved top and a concave back.

For its playability, the DR3 model comes with a 5 piece walnut and figured maple neck that is connected to the body via "neck through" design. Other features come standard with the Dave Refett Signature series: 25.5" Scale Length and Dual Spoke Wheel Truss Rods.

This guitar comes with a pair Seymour Duncan Blackouts pickups, a versatile pickup combination that according to Esoterik is "capable of producing bone crushing rhythms and searing leads while offering the clearest clean tones and everything in between." You can switch between pickups via a 3-way switch and you can control the pickups via the neck and bridge volume knobs, and a master tone knob.

Tuning and stability is provided by a Kahler Tremolo bridge, Goto 510 tuners and Graphtech Nut. Finally the guitar is wrapped in a natural oil finish that showcases the nice looking wood grains on the guitar. Each of these hand crafted guitars take an average of 4 months to produce.
