PureSalem Guitars Introduces Vintage-Inspired Cardinal

Publish date:

PureSalem Guitars adopts an inspired approach and attitude while honoring the electric guitar’s glorious past. It‘s about simplicity in design—wood, wire and strings. It’s rock and roll, not rocket science.

To quote David Fair (Half Japanese), "The idea is to put a pick in one hand and a guitar in the other and with a tiny movement rule the world.”

PureSalem's Cardinal model combines quality construction and components with off-kilter styling’s and transports us back to an era when rock and roll was free and memories yet to be made.
