The Mesa is a wide body guitar with unique style. Like the Dekko and the Imp, the Mesa is available only from O'Dell Guitars. This 25.5 inch scale guitar comes with either a set neck, or a bolton. It is available in several trim levels:
The Mesa Archtop Deluxe is reminiscent of vintage archtops, but with a style all its own. A true archtop, it has both a carved top and back, and comes standard with a set neck. Configured as either a hard tail or with a trem, it is configurable with several pickup options.
The Mesa Aire Deluxe offers a flat top, semi-hollow body with f-holes. Both set neck and bolton options are available. Standard configuration includes custom, high quality pickups, master tone/volume knobs, a 3 way switch. It can be configured with push/pull split or phase pots depending upon the pickup choices used.
The Mesa offers the Mesa shape in a solid body or chambered body version. Both set neck and bolton options are available. Standard configuration includes custom, high quality pickups, 4 volume/tone knobs, and 3 way switch. It can be configured with push/pull split or phase pots depending upon the pickup choices used.
Custom colors, relic and sparkle finishes are available as appropriate based on the model.
As with all O'Dell guitars , the neck features elements that prompt players to say they "play like butter."
