We're running a Fender-Standard 25 1/2" scale length, a 43mm wide nut and a 12" fretboard radius. The neck has twenty two nickel-silver 6105 profile medium jumbo frets, leveled, crowned and polished. The fingerboard is hand selected Canadian Hard Rock Maple- with a bare minimum of finish on it- OLD SCHOOL baby!
Where the Slick SL51 really distinguishes itself is with the PICKUPS. We use a pair of Slick Brand, HAND AGED Tele pickups. We use the SL119 "Fullerton Lead" in the bridge, and the SLP121 "Fullerton" neck pickup. These are true authentic vintage pickups- ALnico V sand cast rod magnets, Formvar wire, bridge wound to a STOUT 9.4K and the neck to a Leo-Approved 5.6K. The pickups are not just built from the right stuff, but we hand age them- both cosmetically and magnetically. They look like old pickups... they feel like old pickups... they sound like old pickups.
The feel and vibe is enhanced and preserved by the completely unique way that we finish Slick guitars. The solid ash body is NOT wood grain filled. It is NOT sealed. NO Polyurethane fillers. It's raw. We spray a single coat of old fashioned automotive paint and sand it back. The pores don't get clogged so the wood can breathe. It works. It sounds better. Louder. Fuller. You can feel it instantly.
The SL51 is a unique guitar, with a tone, feel and sound unmatched by anything under a grand out there. Try one. We think you'll be hooked!
