Description

The Veritas Portlander is what you get if you merge together some classic singlecut styles with a flat top 'T' design. Fitted with a pair of sweet humbucking pickups, a Bigsby B5 tremolo and made by some of the best luthiers in the world this Veritas Portlander is a real beauty to behold.

Veritas Quality

Veritas Guitars are a tiny company based out of the pacific northwest USA and in the last few years have proved themselves as some of the best guitar builders in the world. Making instruments that take vintage inspiration and bring it forward to the 21st century these became incredibly popular in the USA offerings up something different to every other company.

Classic Build

The Portlander is quite clearly the love child of two of the worlds more iconic guitars. With an Alder body, Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard it is certainly has the look and feel of a classic T type. The hardware points in a different direction though with a Bigsby B5 tremolo system matched with a rolling bridge and a pair of classically voiced vintage humbuckers.

Modern Tweaks

Veritas have made some great changes to parts of the vintage specs however to suit some more modern styles. For example the fretboard has a compound radius. This means that near the nut the fretboard is rounder at 9.5" radius and up near the pickups it is 16", much flatter, much better for solos. Small tweaks like this can be found all over this guitar.

El Rayo Pickups

Veritas guitars typically use Lollar pickups as standard and for this particular model, they've chosen the El Rayo set. El Rayos have a clear and bright top end but beautiful, bold low end. They are low output pickups with a strong midrange bump for those PAF style tones. Veritas guitars are able to spec their guitars with any pickups that you want, however they currently match their guitars with Lollar pickups.
