​​Jeff Babicz Handmade Timeworn™ Series Electric Guitars

Having nearly 40 years as an instrument designer and builder, Jeff currently holds six guitar patents and is widely known for building and designing with such guitar ikons as Billy Gibbons, Eddie Van Halen, Steven Wilson, and Steve Howe to name a few. Besides his own brands of guitars and components (Babicz Guitars USA, Babicz Full Contact Bridges), Jeff also worked for Ned Steinberger running the world famous Steinberger factory through out the 1980’s. 

Timeworn™ Series Overview 
Combining classic guitar designs with modern, high quality components, the Jeff Babicz Timeworn™ Series offers unmatched performance for a musical instrument in this price point category. 
Jeff hand builds each instrument personally in his Newburgh, New York shop, one at a time. He then meticulously ages each and every component producing a timeworn, broken-in feel and appearance. This process literally makes each instrument a one-of-a-kind collectors grade piece. 
All of the components and tone woods are also personally selected by Jeff. He chooses only the best component brands available, insuring constant quality through and through. Be it on on stage, or in the studio, Jeff’s handcrafted guitars are sure to get your musical task done.    

Timeworn™ Series Features
Body: Chosen for the best grain pattern, species and weight, Jeff Babicz personally selects the highest quality body tone wood for all his handmade instruments.

Neck: A smooth “C” shape neck profile, Jeff Babicz also utilizes a compound radius fretboard. This is where the fretboard surface radius gradually changes from 9.5" at the nut, to 12" at the 22nd fret. This allows for low string action height and cleaner string bending, especially past the 12th fret.

Hardware: Every guitar is fitted with Jeff’s patented Full Contact Hardware bridge piece; US Pat# 8,525,008. Jeff’s revolutionary design directly couples the vibrating string to the instruments body, improving sustain and tone substantially. FCH has now been used on such prestigious brands as Gibson USA, ESP, Schecter and Dean guitars. 

Electronics: Jeff Babicz personally hand-solderers all of the electronic components using the best brand-name components for long life and the best sound. Each body and pickguard is fully shielded for optimum noise free output.

​Setup: Jeff personally performs the final setup for every guitar. From his time at Steinberger Guitars in the early 1980’s to his own line of guitars, Jeff has setup literally thousands of guitars and basses for top flight musicians around the world.
