All Black, Hotrail Pickup, Roseacer Board Neck
Black Body, Roseacer Board Neck, Hotrail Humbucking Pickup, 3 Ply Black Guard, Slide Biased Action, Sieve Style Cover Plate, Rear Sound Port. A Cracker!
This is an all black Sollophonic solid-bodied resonator guitar with a roseacer board neck. Like all Sollophonic Guitars it has a Continental cone under the cover-plate and a bone top nut with widened string spacing. This guitar has a lovely roseacer board neck with a satin finish and a slim-ish profile, with enclosed tuners. Strung with 12-52 strings, it has a rosewood biscuit bridge and a rosewood saddle, and is set up with an action which has a bias towards slide playing, while still giving a good ability for chord and lick playing around the lower frets. This gives the guitar a bright, full-toned acoustic sound, and makes for a great bottleneck playing instrument. It has a Hotrail humbucker pickup, rated at 9K, wired to controls on a chrome plate near the jack socket and topped with chrome domed knobs. This pickup gives a great electric sound, classic noise free tone, and is mounted under a black three ply scratch-plate, which matches the black finish of the guitar. Finally it has a sieve pattern cover-plate, a standard length tail-piece and a rear sound-port with a stainless steel grille.
So to sum up, black, and chrome guitar. Continental cone, slide biased action, rosewood bridge and saddle, rear sound port.
