“I just received my Southern Belle! Picked it up, turned it on and bam!! I've owned a few Fender Tele's in my time (I'm 66 years old) and they're great guitars. But if you can find a $1500 dollar difference between this Southern Belle and the other Tele's, I'll kiss your rat bastard ass! Love this guitar! Thanks guys!!”

“So I was invited over to do some session work at one of our big local studios on a country record. I of course brought my Southern Belle as it was right after a rehearsal. I auditioned a very pricey custom made tele type, a Gibson 59 reissue LP, and a few other Fender Teles. The client and producer both preferred the Belle to the other instruments for most of the tracks. The Custom tele did make it to one of them. So I’d say these HLK guitars passed the sound test with flying colors!”

“I just had a Southern Belle delivered last week and I can't put it down, it’s the best Tele type guitar that I own. It arrived set up, polished frets, intonation perfect and ready to play!! Awesome hardshell cases also! Well worth the money. I'm proud to be a "Rat Bastard" and plan to purchase another model. Thanks!”

“I own 3 HardLuck Kings guitars. Two Southern Belles and a Bossman. These guitars are fantastic!!!! They look gorgeous, sound awesome and are incredibly fun to play. HLK is as legit as it comes. Keep up the good work guys.”

“I just got my Southern Belle and I have to say I’m fully impressed! The action is perfect and the sound is even better than a tele. Thank you for making a killer guitar for a great price!  5 stars for sure.”

"I don't know how they do it, and I really don't care. But my Bombshell and Southern Belle are two of the best guitars I've ever played. You definitely get more bang for your buck with HardLuck Kings!!"
