Conway Custom Guitars Leo-T Butterscotch
The Leo series is a reimagining of the iconic guitars designed by Leo Fender in the early 1950s. A distinct tribute rather than a re-creation, the goal was to design something that looks and feels truly unique whilst retaining an air of familiarity.
The LEO is for anyone who loves those classic F-style designs but would prefer them in a package that is slightly less traditional and more unique. Whilst those iconic guitars have stood the test of time, there is no denying they have certain drawbacks within their designs – the LEO was created in an effort to remedy those made design niggles, and wrap the into something fresh and unique built to last a lifetime without the need for modifications or idiosyncratic repairs.
The four flagship models within the Leo line – T, JM, S and TL – take inspiration from most prominent F-style guitars.
The LEO was born not only from a desire to create a unique take on these classic designs, but also from the perspective of 10 years of experience repairing and modifying countless F-style guitars. Through this time it has become most evident which elements of the designs can be improved upon. Each having a unique feature set.
