A fantastic, budget friendly guitar range lands at the Home of Tone; Introducing 'SX Guitars'!
For long time followers of the Home of Tone, this particular brand, or price point of guitar may be somewhat of a surprise to see on my site and roster. But rest assured, SX joins the Home of Tone after a lot of researching, trial time and planning so I'm equally as proud to represent this more budget friendly guitar brand alongside the top of the range handmade instruments you've come to know me for.

I have always really wanted to offer a lower budget friendly option for instruments here, but it remains incredibly important to me to offer something that is of great quality, regardless of it's price point. And that is where the SX brand of guitars have proved to be a great choice and one I'm proud to offer here. Whether you're a beginner looking for a solid, reliable and great looking guitar to learn with, or you're perhaps looking for a budget friendly modding platform, these guitars will help provide that! I have personally owned an SX SST62+ for a couple of years now after being kindly gifted one. You may have already seen it on my Instagram page for demos, or featured in blog articles as I've used it for product instructional articles and product development too. I have been very impressed by it's playing feel and construction. A good feeling neck, neat fretting, great period correct styling and a very fair construction for it's price point. So it was a no brainer to stock these here after owning that older model SX for a while, but I must say, these newer production instruments are even better than the example I own, production has further improved and the overall look is superb too.

I'll be stocking a few models, but I'm kicking things off firstly with the SST62+ that I mentioned in the previous paragraph. It is SX's take on the classic '62 spec S-Type guitar. It features a Canadian Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard. Basswood body and a great choice of classic colours. Vintage style die-cast chrome tuners, a 2 way adjustable truss rod, 6 saddle tremolo bridge and synthetic bone nut make for a solid, adjustable instrument and specs found on models higher than it's price point.

But why buy from James' Home of Tone?
I'm not going to bury my head in the sand, I am fully aware you can find these guitars for some great prices online elsewhere, but I feel I can offer something that others may well not. I have zero intention to just be a 'box shifting' supplier. Guitars of this price point are usually just shipped out upon order, no additional checks, but here at James' Home of Tone, regardless of price point, each and every guitar sold is inspected by me personally. At the end of the day, SX quality control is of a good standard, but it would have travelled by container, stored in a warehouse then shipped to me since that point of final inspection at the factory. So I take each out of the packaging and provide a full inspection, ensuring this guitar will play nicely out of the box for you. I check it's basic set-up including neck relief, string action, nut height and intonation. If you're not familiar with what those checks are, they are essentially what helps ensure the guitar plays well, and in tune.

I have decided to offer something further to that though, as an extension of the level of service I want to offer my customers. For an extra fee, I also offer the option of having the guitar given a Full Home of Tone Set-up, where I will remove the strings, check and polish the frets, condition the fretboard and begin the set-up from scratch to ensure the best possible playability. This may be a great option for you whilst the instrument here prior to dispatch. A Home of Tone set up is usually £45 inc VAT plus strings, but I am offering it at a discounted price as part of a deal with the SX instruments ordered through the Home of Tone. Have a specific string gauge preference too? Then I will set up the guitar with that string gauge for you straight away! Prices of the guitar as it is, or the price including the full set-up is shown on each listing so please feel free to check out the listings for more information. 

Want to try one out in person? Sure thing! Get in touch via the contact box on the website and we can organise a convenient appointment time for you to come and visit. Right handed models, and the lovely Sunburst Left Handed version will be stocked, and in time I will introduce more SX models to my line-up too! If you are interested in a specific SX mdoel though and don't see it listed, feel free to get in touch as I can specially order them in for you no problem at all!

James
