The Dissident is one of Ben’s early custom models that has stood the test of time.  These guitars are the culmination of a decade and a half of guitar building and design brought to life with some of the most modern 3D CAD and CNC technologies, allowing us to produce them at half the price and with amazing replicability.  There is a small range of timber options in the base series and they come as standard with our own hand wound, Dorset made pickups.  The models then, either receive a stunning high gloss lacquer finish or those with exotic woods get a tactile oil finish, they look incredible.

This Dissident was one of the first instruments on which Ben began to play with Copper and now it can be yours.
