Cream Ash Body, Sweet Chunky Maple Neck With Lovely Grain, P90 Soapbar, Sieve Cover-plate, Short Tail-piece, Red Torty Guard, Versatile Mixed Action, Twin Rear Sound-Ports. A Stonker!!!
Here is a lovely cream ash bodied Sollophonic solid bodied resonator guitar with a maple neck. Like all Sollophonic guitars it has a bone top nut with widened string spacing and a Continental cone under the cover-plate. This one has a lovely, reasonably chunky maple neck with some lovely grain figuring and is a nice one to both play and behold. It has a rosewood biscuit bridge and a maple saddle and is strung with 12-52 strings with a versatile action for both slide and non-slide playing and a bright acoustic tone from this set up. A P90 soap-bar pickup rated at 9K sits in a dark red tortoiseshell scratch-plate and is wired to controls mounted on a chrome plate and topped with chrome knobs. This gives a great electric sound, wonderful for slide and lovely warm tones through a nice amp. It has a sieve style cover-plate and a short tail-piece and has two rear sound ports in the back of the guitar, covered by stainless steel grilles.
So to sum up, a classic and versatile Sollophonic combination here. Sweet playing and lovely looking maple neck, with a nice chunky-ish profile, set up with a nice action for all styles of playing. Sweet sounding P90 Soar-bar pickup for great slide and bluesy tones, and a classic cream, chrome and red colour combo. Rear sound ports and a short tail piece complete the specification.
