Much like the now famous Hallmark 60 Custom guitar......the Hallmark 65 Custom blends classic design, with effortless play ability and tone! 

So many have inquired about the same 60 Custom style guitar but wanted the bolt on neck version. In reply we have answered and unleashed the 65 Custom with two exclusive wide range high-output pickups for maximum tone and power and a feel that is absolutely unmatched!

These pickups have the same tone as the vintage models but without the squeel and hum.  Many top pros agree the sound is absolutely unique. We have employed the same improvements in this model as we have in all of our models keeping the key ingredients such as a re-designed locking bridge by Shade which creates more sustain, and provides correct intonation and string alignment.

Two exclusive high output wide range pickups for the unique Hallmark classic sound. The "SHADE" needle bearing die cast tremolo for effortless play ability and perfect return to exact pitch.  With the 1+5/8" width at the zero fret (nut),and crowned fretwire, this guitar is made to play! We have added a brass neck plate that gives this 65C model guitar even more brilliance and clarity.

Most importantly, we are proud to offer our latest in refinement and design. See for yourself why these guitars are now in demand, the world over. 

If you have any questions or would like any custom features, pickups, or custom paint work, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. We do it all.

Best reverbs, 
Bob Shade
