Te Ardents starts at £1950 up to £4500.00
The ardent is a semi hollow electric guitar inspired by the legendary Telecaster. I designed the Ardent to retain the spirit of the earlier telecasters while at the same time being distinguishable as a Stuart Day Guitar. This guitar can look like a show pony but will always be a work horse. Designed to be a versatile player, chambered for weight reduction and improved resonance, but built to be handled.
Please Inquire for current price and detailed options price list.
