DAVE BURRLUCK - GUITARIST MAGAZINE

J1 ebony

A carved maple top on a chambered mahogany body, gives this guitar an amazing natural sustain and resonance while keeping it light. The neck is beautifully hand carved from one piece of quarter sawn mahogany, creating a very stable neck with a great feel. The ebony fingerboard has a slightly brighter response than rosewood and is inlayed in mother of pearl 'Wave' markers.

All hardware is high quality and made in the US; you can choose from either a lightweight Pigtail wraparound bridge or a vintage-style Kluson tuneomatic bridge with a lightweight stop bar. Sperzel Solid-Pro tuners guarantee fine tuning and smooth operation. The guitar is fitted with high quality US made CTS pots, Switchcraft toggle switch and a pull/push tone pot for coil splitting. A 50’s wiring scheme is used in all our guitars as we have found that it minimises treble loss when rolling back the volume.

Bare Knuckle unpotted humbuckers are fitted as standard with a 'Mule' humbucker in the neck position for its outstanding clarity, extended dynamic range and unmistakable vintage character. A 'Riff Raff' pickup is selected in the bridge position for plenty of snap and a classic range of organic, clean and driven tones.
