A custom M-tone order can get you a pretty dreamy guitar. You’re looking at a custom thinline Counterpunch with an alder body with maple cap and Lollar Regal and El Rayo pickups. It rocks, it twangs, and it will even do mellow. The middle position is an incredible combination of sweet and twangy – never heard that tone in any guitar before.
This rust-over-black paisley Counterpunch is now available at Infinity Guitars in Houston, TX. It’s a lightweight 7.5 pounds, alder body, maple neck, rosewood board, a pair of Lollartrons and a hammered aluminum pickguard. Not only is it a looker, it will also kick your ears’ ass (if that is physically possible).
Sure, it looks good, but this Counterpunch is one mean and nasty rock & roll machine. Alder body, pau ferro neck and fingerboard + Lollar Imperials and a steel pickguard = big, aggressive sound.
(It also has silver sparkles.)
I’ve been working on a custom Thinline Counterpunch. Gonna be a fun guitar for a great player (it’s his second M-tone).
The Counterpunch is the latest addition to the M-tone line. This elegant, hand made single cut can be configured in a variety of ways to suit the needs of any player. It features your choice of any two Lollar pickups. The body is available as a slab or contoured in either alder or mahogany. The supple, hand carved neck comes in pau ferro, goncalo alves or maple and can be carved to your exact specifications. The pickguard is available in M-tone’s traditional 16 gauge steel or in our new wood option (many varieties available).
Of course, like all M-tones, every Counterpunch is hand made one at a time by Matt Proctor in Portland, Oregon. The finish on each guitar is one of a kind and totally individual to that guitar.
The Counterpunch is well balanced and super comfortable to play. The Counterpunch has long sustain and is very present and articulate with great note separation. Clean, it sparkles, and driven hard, it always kicks ass.
Rebel Guitars has a couple in stock, and you can always order a custom one from M-tone directly.
“The M-Tone Slipstream is what we want to see in a custom guitar – true uniqueness and superlative craftsmanship in a compelling package. This guitar is gorgeous, plays great, and sounds wicked.” – Pete Prown, Vintage Guitar Magazine

This beautiful seaburst Counterpunch with an alder body, maple neck and Lollar Imperials and a steel pickguard is now available at Infinity Guitars in Houston. It’s got that 25.5″ punch with all the lovely humbuckerness you could ever dream of.
M-tone is honored to have the Slipstream included in Premier Guitar’s Premier Gear of the Year 2012 issue.
Please welcome the brand new M-tone model – the Counterpunch. It’s got a Honduras mahogany body and a two-ply maple and jatoba pickguard. The neck is a very sweet bird’s eye maple with a rosewood board, and the pickguards are Lollar Imperials. This one’s headed to Rebel Guitars.
Here’s a new Dynamo in a finish I’m calling “seablack burst.” It’s the liveliest guitar I’ve ever built. Notes just jump off of this thing.
