Handcrafted in Chicago by Benny Monson (Serek Basses) and an era-inspired standby for a growing number of touring artists, the Zipper’s great granddaddy on its mother’s side was a Harmony Stratotone. Its fraternal grandparents were both (unrelated) Fender Telecaster Thinlines. Talk in town is that it’s got a great uncle that might have been a Gibson Melody Maker. It hangs out with Danelectros on the weekends.

The Zipper’s heart came from the Sears Roebuck catalog for Christmas morning. Its guts are sturdy and persistent. Like the Hoover Dam.

It’s the Hydrox or Oreo cookie of electric guitars. A hollowed-out wood center block and walls are the white stuff. Top and back plates of a complimentary wood are the cookie. It strings through the body over a tailpiece that came to me in a dream. The tailpiece and string-through-edness are what make this sucker ring. “Zip” if you will. Includes deluxe padded gig bag.
