Porter Guitars Les Bois Custom, Vintage Yellow, Light Relic - #18-026

If you're looking for a unique, hand-crafted creation that rips when you crank the volume, this guitar is for you. It features a beautiful, lightly reliced finish with sweet sounding mini-humbuckers.

The Les Bois is named after Boise, ID and the word in french means “woods and trees.” The Les Bois was created for a more fixed pickup and single cut variation of our first guitar, the Khrosis. Both guitars utilize the same necks, but the Les Bois is a slightly bigger body and shows off more of the wood of the guitar. The Les Bois design leans itself to a familiar yet unique feeling guitar that is built to last!

The Custom model is for those who are looking to add an even more unique touch to their Porter Les Bois. We’ve taken the Performance platform and given you even more choices.

For those of you who aren't very familiar with Porter Guitars, they create custom made electric guitars born from a chase of tone and to be uniquely yours. They build tone machines! Porter Guitars consists of a small team of builders passionate about making instruments that work well for a variety of styles and inspire the players who play them. With our extensive knowledge of Pickup design at Porter Pickups, they create guitars with not only killer looks, but killer tone!

The Porter Mini-Humbuckers featured in this guitar are their take on the classic mini design. The Porter mini humbuckers provide a sweet but not too muddy tone in the neck and a classic bridge sound. You could think of the Mini Humbuckers as a smaller version of our regular humbuckers, with DC resistance in the 6k range. Tonally we like to describe the mini’s as somewhere between a T style bridge and full sized humbucker.
