The Delta Zephyr is the flagship of Postal Guitars.
It was the first design and took a long long time to get just right. However once I got it - every time I messed with the design it would just morph back into it's own shape.
I wanted it to have the 3 way selector with the 2 pickups. I felt that the pickups did not have to be matching but rather be the most effective in relation to a guitar meant to be the only tool you'll need.
The idea should be that the guitars should sound like a Postal Guitar rather than being able to sound like several different guitars.
It was important to me that as much as possible the guitars should be made by hand. These days it's is almost impossible to own something unique. This is even more important when your guitar might be the one thing you grab when you're running out of a burning building.
I did much research involving a glued in neck V a screwed in neck. In the end I had to go with the screw in for two reasons. The first is the that there is no glue between the two wood surfaces. The other is in the end nobody should be shut down if they have a problem with their neck. There is just no good reason a neck should not be easily replaced.
We also developed the hand carved scroll head stock for which we were awarded a United States Government Patent.
If you have us build you a Postal Delta Zephyr you will have something worth keeping the rest of your life.
