The Charlie Christian Underwound by Nick Silver Pickups in the neck position covers a wide tonal spectrum with clarity and a solid bass fundament.
The Sweeney Todd at the bridge position is also hand-wound by Nick Silver Pickups. It has the right amount of twang but without any harshness in the higher frequencies.
To unlock the full potential of the pickups, there is an additional 4th position which switches the neck and the bridge pickup in serial mode. This results in a warm and rich tone wich sounds amazing for solo lines as well as for rhythm sections.
A volume control and a global tone control is all you need to dial in the sound you want from this guitar. High quality parts such as Emerson Custom CTS style pots and Mojotone Vitamin T caps are used in the electronics compartment.
Wood & Hardware
The wood composition consists of Alder for the body, rift sawn maple and bog oak for the fretboard. Due to the 5-point machine screws neck attachment, the Gotoh Ti-TC2 bridge and the Grainger String Ferrule Block this guitar develops massive sustain.
