La Grange has updated its Wheel guitar, which the company touts as “the result of founder Benjamin Wasservogel’s long journey in quest of a new ‘classic’ instrument for the blues and rock guitar player.” The new model now boasts Sheptone Heartbreaker humbuckers at the neck and bridge.

Otherwise, the Wheel features a korina body in a dog-hair finish, a C-shape maple neck with a purple-heart stripe, a 22-fret ebony fretboard and a headstock with a faux shell inlay logo on a dark ebony veneer.
