All Black, Roseacer Board Neck, Retro Humbucker Pickup
Black And Chrome, Roseacer Board Neck, Slide Based/Biased Action, Vintage Voiced Humbucker Pickup, Sieve Cover Plate, Rear Sound Port. A Belter!
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 strong bias towards slide playing, while still giving the ability for chord and lick playing around the lower frets. This gives the guitar a full-toned, clear acoustic sound, and makes for a great slide playing instrument. It has a retro, vintage style humbucker pickup, rated at 8.5K, wired to controls on a chrome plate near the jack socket and topped with chrome domed knobs. This pickup gives a great but lower output, vintage electric sound, but it is hum cancelling and is mounted into a black three ply scratch-plate, which compliments 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, a black and chrome guitar. Continental cone, vintage voiced but hun-free pickup, slide biased action, rosewood bridge and saddle, rear sound port.
