Carl Verheyen's Signature Guitar

The LsL Carl Verheyen Special solidbody electric guitar is crafted to be the ultimate instrument for Supertramp guitarist Carl Verheyen, who also happens to be one of the most prolific session guitarists in the world. Just about every piece of this machine is crafted in-house at LsL by a small group of luthiers, with a fine-tuned attention to detail and quality. Everything about your Carl Verheyen Special, from the single-coil pickups to the pickguard and even Carl's specific setup come together in an instrument that will have you gasp the moment you pick it up.

LsL Carl Verheyen Special Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Carl's main guitar
  • Every spec carefully chosen by Carl
  • Handmade down to the pickguard
Carl's main guitar

Carl Verheyen resides in the uppermost echelon of professional guitarists. It's safe to assume that he has his pick of any instruments he wants to play, and Carl chooses to play these LsL models. Whether he's in the studios of LA working on film scores, tearing up stages around the world in Supertramp, or tracking his solo album here at Sweetwater, his Carl Verheyen Special is never far away. This man knows a great guitar when he sees one, and he chooses LsL.

Every spec carefully chosen by Carl

It should come as no surprise that Verheyen loves these guitars, because he's the one who designed them. He had the opportunity to work very closely with LsL craftsmen to specify every little detail about the instrument's construction and tone. He chose a lightweight alder body for its warm and even sounds, vintage-style pickups with plenty of top-end clarity, and a neck profile that is patterned after his old '61. This guitar is Verheyen's main instrument. Those results speak for themselves.

Handmade down to the pickguard

Just about every single aspect of the Carl Verheyen Special solidbody electric guitar is handcrafted by the small team of luthiers at LsL. All the details, from the hand-selected tonewoods to the slugs in the pickups, are crafted with as much attention and care as the rest of the instrument. Even the incredibly thin nitrocellulose finish is painstakingly applied by hand. All of this personal attention adds up to guitars that are flawless and consistent from instrument to instrument. That's why you'll find them in the hands of players such as Keith Urban, Joe Walsh, and Walter Becker.

LsL Carl Verheyen Special Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Signature for session ace and Supertramp guitarist Carl Verheyen
  • Specifically lightweight alder used for the body
  • LsL '50s Saticoy pickups are made in-house to sound authentically vintage
  • Comfortable 9.5" fretboard radius
  • Neck carve patterned after Verheyen's beloved '61
  • Incredibly thin nitrocellulose finish that is lightly worn
The Carl Verheyen Special is so good that it remains the guitar hero's main player.
