Wood
Trident Guitars has several standard options for body wood.
  • Option 1: Solid Alder
  • Option 2: Solid Poplar
  • Option 3: Solid Ash
  • Option 4: Solid Mahogany w/Maple Top
More options will be added in the future and custom guitars are only limited to what I can get and what I can work with.

Pickups

GFS pickups are standard on most of our guitars. Occasionally we will use Carvin, Seymour Duncan, Gibson, Mighty Mite and other high quality pickups. There are lots of great pickups out there and we can't carry them all. For that reason if you want Lace Sensor or Lindy Fralin or DiMarzio or any other pickups in your guitar send them to us and we'll be glad to use them in your guitar.

Body Finish

We finish our guitars with tung oil. Using a proprietary process to color the oil, we produce a beautiful strong finish that allows the wood's natural resonance to come through.

Neck Finish

Our necks are finished using Tung Oil. Tung Oil produces a beautiful and strong finish that allows the wood's natural resonance to come through. T.O. will not become sticky like lacquer sometimes can and is therefore ideal for necks. Our necks have a fast satin/woody feel.
Hardware
Trident Guitars uses only high quality hardware. We use a variety of manufacturers so listing them all would be impractical. If you have to have Grover tuners let us know and we'll do what we can to get you what you want. We don't want to send you a guitar that you immediately have to change.
Electronics *NEW for 2012*
Starting with instruments built in 2012 Trident Guitars will use only CTS Potentiometers and Sprague Orange Drop Tone Capacitors for reliable precision performance. We also use only Switchcraft outbout jacks and Mighty Mite Toggle switches. (but we've always used those...)
Strings *NEW for 2012*
Trident Guitars has teamed up with Dark Horse Guitar Strings. Our guitars are strung exclusively with Wild Horse Strings for awesome tone and long life. Check them out for yourself at: www.DarkHorseStrings.com
