Dark Red Sollophonic With Maple Neck And Hotrail Pickup


Dark Red Body, Chunky Maple Neck, Hotrail Pickup, Black Scratch-plate, Mixed Action, Sieve Cover-plate, Great Sounding, Both Acoustic And Electric. A Cracker!!!



This is a dark red bodied Sollophonic solid bodied resonator guitar, with a maple neck, Hotrail pickup and a black pick-guard. Like all Sollophonic guitars it has had a full fret dress and polish, has a Continental cone fitted and has a bone top nut with widened string spacing. A reasonably chunky maple neck with a satin finish is matched to a dark red lacquered ash body. This one has a rosewood biscuit bridge and maple saddle, is strung with 12-52 strings and has an action set for mixed slide/non-slide playing with 12th fret heights measured at 2.25mm bass side and 2mm treble side. This allows for lower fret chord and finger-style playing, and of course can be further adjusted to suit your individual playing style. It has a humbucking Hotrail pickup rated at 11K, mounted in a black three ply scratch-plate and wired to front mounted controls on a chrome plate near the jack socket, topped with chrome knobs. This combination gives this lovely guitar a sweet, full bodied acoustic sound, coupled with a full, rich, noise free electric tone from the Hotrail. Finally it has a rear sound-port covered with a stainless steel grill, it has sieve-style cover-plate, and a standard length chrome tail-piece.

So to sum up;- a dark red lacquered body, chunky maple neck, Hotrail pickup, three ply black pick-guard, mixed versatile action, Continental cone, bone top nut, sieve style cover-plate, front mounted controls and rear sound-port. Sweet player and great sounding, with a classy cream/black colour combination.
