According to Wildwood Guitars:

…James Tyler has been crafting phenomenal instruments and inspiring guitar players since the early ’70s. James Tyler is a fastidious man, so it’s no surprise that his guitars are some of the most consistently excellent instruments we have ever seen. Their build quality is top-notch, and their voices sing with spectacular fullness and clarity. By crafting guitars with stunning finishes and necks that practically play themselves, James Tyler has cemented his legacy in the guitar world…Ultimate Weapon, indeed! This James Tyler axe has supreme balance and good deal of muscle in the attack. It’s chunky and meaty in the low end with plenty of clarity, and you can really push the mids and make them sing. The trebles are quite touch sensitive, and they can either cry, purr, or scream depending on your right hand technique…
