Bell Custom Guitars announces a new addition to it's custom line of hand-built guitars — the CTS-V. The CTS-V is uniquely designed with a mahogany and acrylic fused body and an LED illumination system.

This guitar features hand-wound Amalfitano PAF pickups, a string-though-body bridge design, and a one-of-a-kind LED illumination system option that lights up the acrylic portion of the guitar. The distinctive lighting makes the CTS-V stand out whether programmed to cycle through red, blue and green colored LEDs, or remain constantly lit.

"We sat down with the Bell CTS-V and a Bell solid-body V — the only difference between them being the acrylic-fused body — playing them through a Mesa Boogie Lone Star on a standard setting with the sole purpose of defining a difference in tone," said Mr. Reid, designer and apprentice to Mr. Bell, "what we heard was a distinct focus and compressed tone — noticeably sharper. The solid-body V sounded great, but the improvement in tone, sustain and overall clarity was undeniable" The CTS-V base-model is priced as shown from $2,395 and may be customized to suit personal preferences including electronics, hardware, and paint.
