Pleiades Maia

Pleiades Alcyone




Pleiades is a new VC Guitars design, and the most elaborate project we’ve done to date. The line consists of 7 models based on the same body contour. Click here for the full story on Pleiades.


Maia is the first of the Pleiades line, and is based on one of the earliest solidbody electric guitars. Featuring a bolt-on neck design and vintage-style 3-saddle bridge design, this tone machine can go anywhere from jazz to rock.

Below is a list of ‚standard’ specs, but being a custom guitar company, we offer extensive custom work. Get in touch to design your custom guitar with us!


  • solid alder or Swamp Ash body
  • bolt-on maple neck, with maple or rosewood fingerboard
  • neck attachment with steel neck inserts and steel bolts
  • 2 VC Guitars single coil pickups: R90 neck, T40 bridge)
  • 3-saddle vintage style bridge with compensated saddles (Schroeder, ABM, …)
  • master volume/master tone control
  • options: too many to list here, but includes different pickup configurations, choice of bridge, tuners, finishes…

Maia prices start at € 2290,- 


We chose Alcyone to be the second in the Pleiades line-up. We’re working on the prototype right now, but we can reveal some of what will be the ‚standard’ specs:

body: solid mahogany with figured maple top

neck: glued in, solid mahogany with rosewood fingerboard

pickups: 2 humbucker or single coil pickups

3L/3R headstock

tune-o-matic or wraparound style bridge

options will include Bigsby vibrato, master grade woods, inlays, bindings, choice of pickups…


The Antares is our first offset design electric guitar, and will be available in several variants, such as a more JM-oriented version, or a version like the prototype pictured here with tune-o-matic bridge and Bigsby vibrato, or even a non-trem version. As is the case with all models, we can work with you to make this your dreamguitar: pickups, choice of tonewoods, hardware, colour finishes… Watch this space for some exciting variations on the offset theme!

Specs of a ‘standard’ model would include:

  • solid alder or swamp ash body
  • bolt-on maple neck with maple or rosewood fretboard
  • choice of pickups (pictured on the prototype: TV Jones T-Armond pickups)
  • Schroeder radiused tune-o-matic bridge (pictured) or Mastery M1 bridge
  • Bigsby B5 (pictured) or Mastery MV vibrato
  • tuners of your choice (pictured on the prototype: Kluson Supreme tuners)
  • CTS/Switchcraft electronics, master tone and master volume

Antares prices start at € 2490,-


The Stinger model was our very first solidbody electric guitar design, and was our own interpretation of a classic double cutaway body. Made with the best materials we continue to make this model on commission. As with all our guitars, options are plentiful as we have complete control over the entire production process.


solid mahogany body with a handcarved figured maple top, set mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, 3L/3R headstock, two pickups and a wraparound bridge. Of course, inlays, highly figured woods, choice of pickups and hardware, vibrato…all these are possible options.

Stinger prices start at € 2790,-
