Shepherd Series

The Shepherd Series represents one of the most affordable hand-made electric guitars on the market today. Made in the spirit of a bygone era this is Atara’s homage to the golden age of guitar building. These are truly guitars with character: featuring the classic tone woods such as – Alder Bodies, and Rosewood or Maple Fret Boards. 1959 is arguably one of the most famous years in electric guitar history. The Shepherds feature the classic combination of 1959 Humbuckers with a modern twist: the JJ Custom/Freeway 6 way toggle switch. This gives you access to all of the classic hum-bucking tones and much more. Pair all of this together with a limited life-time warranty and a hard shell case and you’ll be thinking,
” This is so awesome I want another one!”
