After several years of doing extensive guitar modifications, refinishing and custom, one-off builds for clients in North America and Europe, LGM announced the Leviathan series of built-to-order custom guitars.
Building on aesthetic cues from some of the progressive guitar designs of the last 20 years, the Leviathan injects twists that add some style and personality to a category of guitars that has recently been driven more by imitation than innovation.
Leviathan series guitars are available in 6-string, 7-string and 8-string variants, with either fixed bridges or tremolo systems. Standard features across the line are alder bodies, 24-fret maple necks with Dunlop 6100 jumbo frets and Gotoh tuners.
No-charge options include:
Choice of fretboard wood (maple, rosewood or ebony)
Offset dot fretboard inlays or no face inlay (side dots only)
Solid color or two-color opaque burst finishes
Hardware color (chrome, black or gold)
Pickups (Leviathan 6-string and 7-string guitars feature DiMarzio pickups as standard equipment, Leviathan 8-string guitars come equipped with one EMG 45DC in the bridge position)
Custom options available on the Leviathan series include exotic wood bodies, necks and fretboards, transparent and graphic finishes, custom inlays, 29- or 36-fret necks, 27" extended scale lengths, and GraphTech Ghost piezo systems.
LGM Guitars are made in Canada, and pricing starts at USD$1700 for a fixed-bridge 6-string Leviathan.
