Huschmid Guitar - 6 string Tantalum Model - Quit Maple top - Red

Hufschmid Guitars H6EPublished on 02/09/22 at 12:37
I was looking for a luthier to build a custom guitar. I played different music styles, and I've been following Patrick for a long time, and I was always impressed by his work. I finally ordered a 6 string tantalum model. The tech specifications are the following:

one-piece mahogany body & neck
A beautiful highly figured "quit maple" top with a red finish
"Crelicam Ebony" fingerboard, 24 frets, 25.5" scale, 12" radius
Torlon 4203 nuts
Orange glowing fingerboard block inlays
Exclusive made Hufschmid humbuckers
High Tolerance CTS pots

25 coats of hand-applied oil-based varnish

Since Patrick and I started conversations to build this guitar, he was always very meticulous on every detail before beginning to make it

Patrick has been almost daily updating me about the progress and exchanging ideas about its specifications and details. The final result is astonishing! I truly trusted him 1000% during the whole process.

This is the best guitar I have ever played in the last 35 years of experience. Sounds clear when needed (I love jazz) and, when you give it some gain, it can be really a metal machine! This Tantalum model is highly versatile. Patrick's humbuckers do the job!

It's is lighter than my previous guitars, the frets are remarkable. The best fretwork I have experienced so far.

The neck is fantastic. Super comfortable. It's unbelievable that Patrick makes it by his own hands.

You cannot compare this guitar with mass production guitars, or even with some fancy brands custom ones. Patrick's craftsmanship, understanding of the wood tones, attention to clients' needs, and innovative materials are unique in the market. You can feel his passion for crafting his guitars. It really makes the difference!

Hufschmid Tantalum Guitar...Playing Perfection!!!

Hufschmid Guitars H6EPublished on 02/01/20 at 06:05
I received my Hufschmid Tantalum model guitar a few weeks ago, and I could not be more happy!!

The workmanship on this guitar is the finest I have ever seen. The guitar is beautiful to look at, and has an amazing feel to it when it is played. All the materials used to create this guitar are the finest available: highest quality wood, frets, fretboards, everything is the absolute best. The shape of the neck was even customized to the shape of my hand. All the finishes on the guitar are perfect...the guitar is flawless.

The sound and playability of the guitar is equally impressive. The ‘glowbucker” pickups on this guitar are custom made, and they sound great!! The cleans are...…

I received my Hufschmid Tantalum model guitar a few weeks ago, and I could not be more happy!!

The workmanship on this guitar is the finest I have ever seen. The guitar is beautiful to look at, and has an amazing feel to it when it is played. All the materials used to create this guitar are the finest available: highest quality wood, frets, fretboards, everything is the absolute best. The shape of the neck was even customized to the shape of my hand. All the finishes on the guitar are perfect...the guitar is flawless.

The sound and playability of the guitar is equally impressive. The ‘glowbucker” pickups on this guitar are custom made, and they sound great!! The cleans are pristine, the overdrive sounds are rich and full. I play a variety of music styles; from “softer style rock” to classic rock to harder rock. The guitar handles all of it perfectly. I also use a variety of amplifiers; both tube and solid state. The guitar sounds amazing through any type of amp. It also takes pedals very well. I have also found that the guitar seems to have almost an endless amount of sustain. I have never experienced a guitar like that. It is a result of the high quality of the workmanship and materials used to make the guitar.

The guitar plays like butter. The action is the best I have ever played. Access to the higher frets is excellent. The shape and thickness of the neck are just right. The guitar weighs in at a little over 7 pounds...a perfect weight for a gigging musician.

I have been playing guitar for over 45 years, and I have owned them all; Gibsons, Fenders, Carvins, Guilds, etc. No guitar I have ever owned is even in the same category as this guitar. Not even close. Patrick Hufschmid is an artist. The care and skill he put into creating this guitar is something you will never find in a mass produced instrument. If you are looking for a once in a lifetime instrument, for a guitar like no other you have ever played, than this is what you want. Do not hesitate in ordering a Hufschmid guitar. You will not regret it.

Hufschmid Tantalum 6 string guitar

Hufschmid Guitars H6EPublished on 05/06/19 at 11:28
I found out about Patrick Hufschmid from a close friend who loves guitars built by independent builders. After checking out the Hufschmid guitars website, I decided that I would like to place an order for a custom guitar. I decided upon the specifications I wanted and reached out to Patrick. He explained to me how the process works and I followed the instructions for payment. The very next day I received a picture of my "guitar to be" while it was still in the form of rough cut timbers!! Through out the entire process I received updates and photos of the progress... even some short video clips. I was kept "in the loop' through out the build process. Once the guitar was completed,...…

I found out about Patrick Hufschmid from a close friend who loves guitars built by independent builders. After checking out the Hufschmid guitars website, I decided that I would like to place an order for a custom guitar. I decided upon the specifications I wanted and reached out to Patrick. He explained to me how the process works and I followed the instructions for payment. The very next day I received a picture of my "guitar to be" while it was still in the form of rough cut timbers!! Through out the entire process I received updates and photos of the progress... even some short video clips. I was kept "in the loop' through out the build process. Once the guitar was completed, Patrick told me that he does the final set up and then would ship it out to me. I waited patiently and within a week or so Patrick contacted me and said my guitar was IN THE USA! He wanted to surprise me and shipped the guitar. It arrived to me that very same day. From Switzerland to NY in 3 days.
I opened the box and after I removed the multiple layers of protection it was wrapped in, I was immediately impressed.
The first thing that I did was look over the entire guitar. No issues. I strummed a chord and was amazed at the resonance of the instrument. The guitar vibrates like it's alive. The neck shape felt very comfortable in my hand, like I'd been playing it for years. Patrick shapes his necks based on a photograph of the players hand... he nailed it. I plugged her in and was incredibly pleased with the sound of my " made to measure " pickups. I explained my taste in music and what I enjoy playing to Patrick and the pickups were wound to my liking. They sound awesome.
The playability, action, intonation and feel of the guitar exceeded my expectations. Spot on perfection all around. To say I was pleased is an understatement. I am a professional guitar tech and a player of 40 years. This is the best guitar I've owned.
Here are the specs:
Tantalum Model
Super strat double cut body, cut from one piece of perfectly quarter sawn highly ribbon figured Sapele
One piece Sapele neck, also perfectly quarter sawn ( INCREDIBLY strong, very stable )
West African Ebony fretboard, 24 jumbo wide "pyramid " frets
25.5" scale length
Hufschmid Blue nut, (lubricant filled engineering thermoplastic)
Exclusive Hufglow block inlays
Heel adjust truss rod wheel
3 X 3 Hufschmid designed tension optimized headstock design
Hipshot barrel knob locking tuners
Hipshot string through body bridge
2 Custom wound Hufschmid GLOWBUCKERS
Single volume, tone and 3 position pickup selector switch
NOS 1970's Russian Military grade capacitor
Inlaid Hufschmid logo minted coin, antique copper finish, in the back of the body ( completely unique! )
I am blown away by the attention to detail and the level of craftsmanship of this instrument. Being a professional guitar technician for most of my life, and a player for so long I have seen nearly every brand of guitar pass across my bench. My Hufschmid surpasses them all in every aspect. It took me 40 years but I finally found what I've been searching for in a guitar. THANK YOU Patrick. I would recommend a Hufschmid guitar to anyone who has been searching for something unique, a guitar that can handle any style of music, and is a true joy to play! This guitar has reignited my passion for playing...

Incredible

Hufschmid Guitars H6EPublished on 07/23/14 at 01:13
12" neck, slight bevel for the right arm to rest on while playing. Natural wood finish. 24"
The guitar is handmade in Switzerland by luthier Patrick Hufschmid.
The H6E is the basic model with a volume, tone and 3 way pickup selector. The volume knob is very sensitive and it is very easy to clean up the signal. I rarely use the tone know, but it is the same story there, very sensitive adjustments.
Pickups are handmade from Kent Armstrong him self, very clean sounding.
Hardware is hipshot products, can't remeber the exact specs, but it works just like it's supposed to.
Sapelli Mahogany neck and body, West African Ebony fretboad.

Sapelli Mahogany neck and body, West African Ebony fretboad.

UTILIZATION

All frets are easy to access, cutouts are perfect. The bevel on top of the body makes a perfect resting place the your lower arm while playing. The guitar is nicely balanced while playing, just the right weight. The tone and volume knobs are very sensitive and give a wide range of adjustments.
The action is low, no stringbuzz. Adjustments to the guitar is self is also very easy if you need to do some work.

This is a guitar with an oil finish, not coats and coats of lacquer. This instrument breathes, it needs more care than some CNC'd 1/1000000 guitars that are out there. But with normal good care this instrument with last for generations.

SOUNDS

I use this with an crappy old Peavy 50 watt transistor amp, Line 6 HD500. I feel that I can play any typ of music with it. It's not a metal guitar, nor is it a Jazz guitar. To me it's a guitar that can be used for anything. As for the sound of the pickups they are bright, yet warm. And like stated earlier, very easy to adjust the sound/tone to get what you want.

OVERALL OPINION

This is by far the best guitar I've every played. It feels incredible, sounds amazing. I had never tried another Hufschmid guitar before I got my own. Simple reason, they are hard to get a hold of. They are made by order and there are not that many out in circulation. I've played other custom/non custom of most brands, but this just feels the best to me.

Next time I'm looking into buying a guitar, a Hufschmid will be on the very top of my list.
The value of this guitar is nothing short of amazing. It's quite basic in regards to what you get, but I need a guitar with a volume and tone know, pickup selector. That's it. I get that, just with 100% quality throughout the whole instrument.
