Perri Ink Mojave and Capistrano
Perri Ink unveils the Mojave and Capistrano, single-pickup custom guitars designed to rock while keeping it simple.
Impressive Sub-$500 Electric Guitars!
These two new stripped down guitars provide a stark contrast to the typical "flowery" custom guitars in the market.
According to Perri Ink, these custom guitars "were designed for one thing: Rock N’ Roll! No aesthetics in the world could change that, so we decided to keep it simple."
The Mojave is a signature model guitar built for guitarist Noah Engh. It has a body inspired by the Les Paul Junior, but is carved from alder instead of mahogany. The neck is made from quarter sawn maple, topped by a 22-fret rosewood fretboard. The neck has a straight 12" fingerboard radius, a nut width of 1 5/8" and follows the standard scale length of 25.5".
Giving the guitar its voice is a single Bare Knuckle Nantucket 90 bridge pickup. The tone is as open and straight-forward as possible, having just a master volume knob to control. Other features include Tonepros wraparound bridge and tailpiece combo and vintage Kluson 6-inline tuners.
The Capistrano sports a different look, but closer inspection will show that it is not much different compared to the Mojave. The guitar has a black-stained and contoured alder body inspired by the Telecaster shape. It also features a quarter sawn maple neck with the same specifications as the Mojave - 25.5" scale length, 1 5/8" nut width and straight 12" fretboard radius. The details on the website say that the guitar has a rosewood fretboard, but the pictures and the video demo show the guitar with a 22-fret maple fingerboard.
The same Bare Knuckle Nantucket 90 bridge pickup is used on this guitar, but it does offer basic tone control via the addition of a tone knob. Other hardware include vintage Kluson 6-inline tuners and Rutters Cutdown bridge with compensated brass saddles.
