We have this guitar discounted because of a small scratch on the back. We put it on the wrong stand and it didn't take nicely to the offset body. The guitar picked up a scratch on the back of the body when it shifted in the stand. You have to catch it just right to see it. We have included a close-up photo with strong lighting reflected intentionally over the scratch to make sure you can see it. It is substantially less visible with the guitar actually in your hands.

The Kauer Banshee Deluxe retains the same neck thru construction that makes the Banshee so unique, but adds a maple top for a distinct sonic flavor. Measuring ¼” thick in the middle and 1/8” on the wings, it imparts a bite and tightness not heard in the standard Banshee and pairs especially well with humbucking pickups. Nonetheless, the body maintains the thin dimensions, comfortable contours and lively response of its namesake. If this isn’t exactly the Banshee you are looking for, feel free to contact us for a custom order to spec one out exactly to your liking!
What Do We Think?
Daniel said it best. The vowel just sits in the right place. No matter where you play on the fretboard, you are rewarded with clarity and a beautiful vocal response in the notes. And the maple top intensifies those Wolfetone KauerBuckers to perfection. For those familiar with the Wolfetone lineup, the Kauerbucker bridge pickup is wound slightly hotter than the Legend and the neck pickup is slightly underwound to keep the mids nice and open in the mahogany body. They utilize fully-charged Alnico II magnets for a tone that is vintage at heart but just the right amount of hot (especially on the bridge pickup).
How Does It Play?
Incredible. Doug PLEKs the necks on his guitars and the results are undeniable. Of course, the entire guitar displays expert craftsmanship that all comes together the moment you pick it up. We don’t usually set guitars up this low, but this beauty plays at 4/64” on the low E at the 12thfret and 3/64” on the high E without buzz. The medium C neck profile is incredibly comfortable as well. Speaking for ourselves, we wouldn’t change a thing!
