Purchased new in 2001. Single owner. DiMarzio Super Distortion pickup replacement, fret crowning, and setup done in 2019 by Rod Miller in Las Vegas (tech for Five Finger Death Punch, Oz Fox, and others).
Sounds great plugged into a Fender Amp with a little gain, playing punchy rhythm chords. You will be the only person in town with this guitar...
Characteristics of Lindert Guitars
These unusual guitars were handmade and featured semi-hollow, machined pine or poplar bodies with cloth or tweed insets that resembled those found on vintage radios. They are also known for the "escape velocity" neck profile - ergonomically designed to be half rounded and half vee for faster playing action and less hand fatigue, which is regarded as one of their strongest features.
All Lindert guitars also featured a headstock which resembles a hand giving a "thumbs up", a design patented by Charles Lindert himself. The maker was supposedly so pleased with the design of his guitar body that he gave himself a mental thumbs-up, and then decided to fashion the headstock to resemble one. Some models included the "Missing Link" switch, which allowed several pickup combinations not available on other guitars, including neck/bridge and using all three pickups at once.
Lindert guitars have become highly sought by collectors due to their quirky and unusual designs, quality construction, good sound and scarcity.
