Echopark Guitars introduce the new El Monte Junior – hand made by luthier Gabriel Currie in Echo Park California with all-American aesthetics & quality. This new ‘slab-style’ Alder wood bruiser harkens back to a time when you could just strap in and get down to business, no filters and no limits…

The El Monte Junior is a sleek, no-nonsense adaptation of the Echopark Clarence model – made in honour of Clarence Fender. El Monte is the place where the San Gabriel mountains met the industrial revolution in 1912. Home to farming and Barrio life. As the birthplace of some of the world’s early pioneers of the modern ‘Spanish Electric.’

The Echopark El Monte Jr. is hand-made from a 1-piece slab of solid Alder with an Eastern Rock Maple neck, 1-piece Rock Maple, Maple or Rosewood fingerboard, 22 medium frets (8550 fretwire), Standard ‘slim’ 59 C neck profile, single Echopark/Arcane Inc. ‘Tele-Tron’ humbucker pickup with 5 conductor, half T-vintage style bridge with brass intonating brass saddles, through-body stringing, a single Volume/Tone control, hand-cut Bone Nut and Kluson USA nickel tuners. Available in White, Desert Sand and Black finishes.
