Xotic California is a small company based in California, not surprisingly. Since the early 2000's we have done business with them buying and selling their line of premium guitar pedals. During this time, they have been developing a very significant bass and guitar business. In 2017 at the winter Namm show in California, we were very impressed with their new line of electric guitars called the California Classic series so much so that we placed an order and have been selling them ever since. At the moment, we are the only active dealer of these guitars in Canada and Xotic funnels all of its Canadian interests/orders through our store. We have a close working relationship with the principal builders at Xotic and are able to help customers navigate the selection and purchase process of buying one of these incredible instruments. Best part is ... our price is roughly the equivalent of Xotic's direct USD price after the currency conversion, brokerage fees and shipping costs and you get the benefit of a local (or at least the same country) partner in the unlikely event of any warranty issues.
These guitars are incredible and we think represent some of the best boutique level value in the guitar market ...

THE CALIFORNIA CLASSIC ...
This series is based around premium tone woods and incredible handmade components. Standard features include nitrocellulose finishes, flame roasted maple necks treated with oil for playability and Xotic's own Raw Vintage pick ups and hardware. We like to keep at least a few guitars in our store at all times for people to experience. These guitars are always available for sale as well either in our store or online. As well, Xotic always has a small selection of pre-built guitars ready to ship. We can always check to see if they have one that would meet your specs. If not, you can order a California Classic from scratch specifying almost every detail. See the options below. We would be more then happy to help you choose options, just get in touch.
