While not exactly cheap, this stunningly beautiful Zemaitis is a more affordable alternative to it's Custom Shop sibling. It features the same engraved hardware- tailpiece, truss rod cover and logo as the Custom Shop version, but by using standard pickup rings and backplates, as well as a high gloss Urethane finish, they are able to help keep the costs down. The custom Zemaitis bridge and tailpiece are not only great looking, but highly functional and add tone and sustain! Nato- which is a great sounding, lightweight wood with tonal qualities similar to Mahogany is used for the body and neck. The build quality, fit and finish, fret work, and general attention to detail is all top notch.
