de Lisle Electric Guitars
de Lisle Standard Electric Guitar
The de Lisle Standard Electric Guitar is loaded with features for remarkable playability and versatility. Our unique body design is cut from lightweight and resonant American Linden and finished in gloss lacquer.
A hardrock maple neck is topped with your choice of fingerboard and medium-jumbo frets. For the neck joint, we use machine screws and wood inserts for more clamping pressure than wood screws and better serviceability than glue. Quality construction, Hipshot tuners and a graphite/Teflon nut ensure maximum tuning stability.
A Hipshot hardtail bridge sits atop the body. Its six individual saddles allow for precision adjustment of both string height and intonation. Strings are fed through the body by our rear-mounted ferrule block.
Available pickups include our own interpretation of the PAF humbucker, P90 or various single coil pickups. Each piece is hand-wound and assembled here in our shop to our exacting standards. We also offer the TV Jones lineup as an alternative. Pickups are wired through a Switchcraft 3-way selector for a variety of voicings. Master volume and tone pots control the level and frequency response. The signal exits the guitar through a Switchcraft jack.
We can also build one to your specs. Click the Options tab to start customizing.

de Lisle Ferrule Block
Our string block was born out of a desire to make construction more streamlined. After doing some research, we discovered that Leo Fender had already introduced a similar plastic block on certain G&L guitars. Ours is a little different from Leo's in that it is made from 6061 aluminum or brass. The block adds sustain and frequency response.
Our new design add more mass and "lip" around the top edge. This helps hide any paint or router imperfections that would be visible with our previous flush-mount design.
Our ferrule blocks feature a .25" radius on both ends. This allows the slot in the back of the guitar to be cut using a .5" diameter router bit with a shank mounted guide bearing (not included).
String spacing is 2.125".

de Lisle Pentatone Switch
This is the same passive tone control that we use in our guitars. It's similar to the Gibson Varitone switch in function. We use a quality, sealed 6-position switch that features five frequency settings in addition to bypass. The Pentatone switch comes pre-assembled and ready to install--just connect the the signal and ground wires. Purchase includes chicken-head knob, dial plate and the switch.
The switch diameter is 1.125". The depth under the mounting surface is about 1.175". The inductor is a .75" cube which is a attached to the switch with a couple inches of lead wire on either end.
