The Richmond Dorchester is an electric guitar that will definitely turn heads. But the best part—The Dorchester guitar sounds even better than it looks! This tone giant features a 25-1/2" scale, 2 classic sounding Lace Alumitone humbucker pickups, housed in a double-cutaway chambered body with a silver leaf maple center and poplar wings. The Dorchester guitar's pickups are controlled by separate volume and tone knobs, along with a 4-way switch to select between various tantalizing sounds. The first position puts the neck and bridge pickups in series, giving you fatter tone and more output.
The Dorchester guitar's bolt-on rock maple neck has the worn-in feel of an Ergocut rosewood or maple fingerboard for an incredibly comfortable playing experience. This Richmond beauty is finished off with high-ratio chrome tuning machines, a chrome roller bridge with fixed tailpiece, a Nordic white extended pickguard and truss rod cover with matching binding on the back. Richmond includes a gig bag with the Dorchester Electric Guitar. Richmond Guitars received 'Best In Show' honors at Summer NAMM 2008!
