The Truxton by K-Line guitars is a simple instrument, but it certainly doesn’t lack in sound. This guitar is based on the single cutaway tele-style body design that has been around for decades, but K-Line puts their own unique little spin on it that turns the Truxton into a truly unique and fun guitar.
The Truxton is a light weight guitar that uses top quality components and the best tonewoods available. A select swamp ash or alder body is standard, although other woods are available. The neck is done in a U shape and features a fretboard with a ten inch radius. The Truxton uses Gotoh SD-91 tuners, a heavy K-line stamped plate bridge with three barrel compensated saddles (a hipshot hard-tail bridge is available on special models). It features Lollar or Klein traditional single coil pickups, but again, other brands are available upon request, including P90, mini humbucker, or Firebird. The guitar can be aged if you like, and there are a large variety of vintage colors available.
The Truxton comes in standard and special models. The standard version with no customizations or additions retails for $2,250.

Here's a demo of the K-Line Truxton
K-Line’s series of relic guitars are known for many things. They use wood that has been sourced for the best most resonant tonal response possible. The necks are made to perfectly match the body so as to maximize the resonance and tone. Despite this, however, K-Line does its best to keep the prices down on their relics, making sure that they are affordable for just about everyone.
One of the new series from K-Line is the Time Kapsule Series. The necks are made just like those of every other K-Line series: they have hand contoured fingerboard edges so that it feels like they’ve got 40 years of wear on them. These guitars are vintage tinted and hand rubbed so that they have a very smooth feeling. They also use a hand rubbed nitro finish instead of poly sealers. The hardware is brand new, however, and isn’t rusted. The Time Kapsule Series is designed for those who love their relic guitars and want to really sound great. The Time Kapsule guitars come in a number of different colors.
While K-Line makes a great number of standard guitars, they also make some amazing relic bass guitars as well. The J-Style Bass Guitar is just one of their many different designs that are based on the early Jazz Bass guitars that were made and played during 1961 and 1962. This outstanding relic comes with a custom case and is made using only high quality vintage parts by top K-Line craftsmen. K-Line is known for its dedication to top notch instruments, and the J-Style basses are no exception.
The J-Style Bass relic features a rosewood or maple neck that is done in a C-shape. It has 6150 frets, and the body is done in alder. The hardware is done with standard parts, but the bridge is Gotoh vintage, and the tuners are Kluson reproductions. The picguard is tortoise, and the pickups are Lollar J-bass. It has aged concentric knobs and comes in an oly white color. All of these parts and vintage pieces combine to create a look and style that very few vintage or relic bass guitars have. You won’t want to pass up one of the K-Line J-Style bass guitars if you love relics or basses. You can order a J-Style Bass Guitar directly from K-Line or from a number of other sites that sell relic guitars and basses.
