The Tech

With styling inspired by the classic t-style design that has been rocking the world for decades, the Tempest is a blend of traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technologies.  Combining flowing curves and hard edges, the Tempest feels smooth and plays even smoother.

The Tempest is designed around a set of custom hand wound Bare Knuckle humbucker pickups features Alnico V magnets to produce a fat, rich clean tone and punchy driven tone. These  humbuckers make this guitar super versatile and suitable for hot blues, hard rock, grunge, punk and old school metal, right through to progressive rock tones.

Three way switching and a push/pull tone pot give you distinct sound options for the ultimate in versatility. The traditional oil paper capacitors and CTS pots ensure a precision audio taper which gives you smooth, accurate response. Crank your guitar up to 10 and the volume swells all the way—no abrupt flattening to choke your playing style.

The Wood

The body and neck are made from hand picked Ash and Maple hardwoods. They are carefully selected for their tone and resonance, which allows for a surprising amount of sustain.

It’s all about the finish

At Munson Guitars we always prefer to use finishes that leave the grain visible, so you can see the beauty of the wood. The Ash body is finished with  our unique cabernet stain. The traditional nitrocellulose that will allow the finish to age gracefully. The Maple neck, which includes a dual action truss rod and contrasting dark walnut skunk strip, is protected and enhanced by nitrocellulose which delivers a hard wearing, yet soft satin feel for a super fast action.

Proudly British

The tempest cabernet is designed and crafted in Britain by our luthier and is offered as part of our ex-demo stock.

Go on, you know you want one…

Built to inspire, the Tempest  is a versatile instrument that will quickly become your go-to guitar.
