Last year southpaw champions Gaskell Guitars announced that they would be shutting down their factory range of guitars to concentrate on custom shop only models. I’m sure we all shed a little tear or two over the loss, but hey – you gotta do what you gotta do to survive in this harsh economic climate right?
But wait! I’ve just received great news! Gaskell has just launched a brand spanking new entry level brand which is bringing back the more affordable production models we’ve all grown to know and love! May I introduce ZAC GUITARS.
Left Handed Explorer Guitars by Zac
Gaskell is billing Zac Guitars as their entry level brand for those who might not be able to afford a fully fledged custom shop instrument from their Australian workshop. And if you haven’t guessed from the photo already, Zac is concentrating on Explorer style guitars, aimed at the beginner to intermediate level player. As with the previous range of Gaskell production models, these Explorers are designed in Australia and built in China. Because these new models are 100% factory built, Zac Explorers are half the price of the Gaskells they are modelled after.
- Body : Chinese mahogany

- Neck Join : Set-In

The guitars are available to order from the Zac website in a variety of colors. Each Explorer is made to order, so expect a delivery time of around 5-6 weeks.
