The Tulah came into being as variation on the beautiful combination of African wenge and mahogany in the tradition of our 'Serpentine' model. 

Handcrafted and beautiful detailed, the Tulah is a chambered electric with weight and sustain similar to a Les Paul with the physical presence of an ES 335.

Large body electric guitars are our thing at the ASO.

We love 1940's era archtop guitars and in the case of the Tulah we've combined this aesthetic with modern electric guitar construction for rich tone, sustain and classic styling.


Every part of the Tulah's construction is handmade by Pete in the ASO workshop and is truly one-of-a-kind.


The Tulah offers a few notable distinctions:

  • Bookmatched wenge front and rear caps.

  • Custom 'teardrop' F Hole with mahogany binding.

  • A Les Paul Junior-esque pickguard integrated into the wenge top cap. 

  • Hand shaped mahogany fret markers. 

  • Recessed Vol / Tone controls and 3 way pickup selector.

  • Recessed wenge control cavity plates on the rear cap.

Every Arthur Street Objects guitar offers a combination of meticulous quality with unique styling. The Tulah is a truly special instrument for the discerning player or collector.
