What makes the Tempest special?

With styling inspired by the classic T-style design that has been rocking the world for decades, the Tempest custom guitar is a blend of traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technologies. Named after the RAF fighters, both old and new, the Tempest  combines flowing curves and hard edges. It’s a guitar that feels smooth and plays fast.

A tone for every style

The Tempest custom shop can be configured from the traditional retro sound that is a throwback to that 60’s & 70’s classic rock sound, through to the latest ultra modern sound which features the amazing Fishman Fluence pickup system, and just about everything in between.

When we first came up with the name Tempest for this model of guitar, we were inspired by the Hawker Tempest which was an extremely versatile British fighter aircraft primarily used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the Second World War. We also discovered that the RAF are building the next-generation Tempest combat aircraft which will operate at the cutting edge of technological innovation. It was therefore fitting that our Tempest custom shop, which is inspired by the long beloved T-style guitars, is also updated to include cutting edge and cool technologies, while maintaining its role as a highly versatile instrument.
