Skermetta S-50 Quicksilver Satin - Friday Strat #253

 Austin, Texas Guitar Builder




One of our Texas readers let us know about Austin based luthier, Peter Skermetta. A big fan of classic platforms, and builders like Suhr and Paul Reed Smith, Skermetta works from standard S-types, T-types and LP shapes. His T stuff also includes a Snakehead model-- reaching waaaay back to early Leo era.

Before moving to Austin and launching the company just last year, Skermetta was a Master Builder with Tyler Guitars, and prior to that he ran the Custom Shop at Fernandes Guitars. Skermetta Guitars is also a full service and repair shop. I suppose Austin can't have too many outfits like this!

Our featured S-50 model, in "Quicksilver Satin" finish, sports a one-piece alder body, Fralin pickups, Wilkinson/Gotoh 6 screw bridge, staggered Klusons and 6105 frets on a 12" radius fretboard with rolled edges.
