The Pragmatist is a thin-bodied, lightweight shred guitar. Straightforward in it's design and unmistakably solid in construction. 

This model is a multiscale- designed for the optimum string tension on the bass strings, without compromising tone or playability on the treble strings. This results in a tight, responsive and balanced tone overall. We recommend a 29.125"-27" scale length, but custom configurations are always a possibility.

Base price: $2999

The guitar in the slideshow above was built with a flamed Koa top and neck, chambered ash body, wenge fingerboard and headplate, and ivoroid binding. The knobs were cnc cut and hand-shaped from the same billet of koa as the top, to ensure a good color match. The pickups were designed, manufactured and wound in the Liggett shop to vintage specs.

Here's a quote from the owner of the Koa 8-string guitar:

"I'm getting the sounds dialed-in, as the pickups are quite different than Bare Knuckles. Very responsive to accentuation and distortion, just as you said.  Also, the neck is like "WHAT".  Incredible.  Plays like melted butter."

This 8 string guitar pictured below was built using Oklahoma-grown persimmon for the top, fingerboard and headplate. Persimmon is a North-American relative to ebony; similarly dense, yet remarkably lightweight. All persimmon used for Liggett Guitars is harvested, dried, and hand-selected in house. This guitar has a chambered black limba body and a butternut neck with more black limba for the scarf joint headstock. Italian celluloid tortoise was chosen for binding material and custom persimmon knobs were manufactured in-house.
