This guitar was the first one we build for Kalle Kalima. Kalle wanted a simple »true guitar look« and we just decided for light Honduran mahogany to construct the guitar. He was very concerned about getting a vast variety of sounds out of it, to have a new, experimental base for his musical style.We took a L.R.Baggs X-Bridge, which produces a real Piezo Western guitar sound and a variety of passive pickups, which include a Joe Barden Two Tone, an old Tele-Rhytm (rewound), and a Gibson P 100. All these pickups were meticulously chosen by Kalle and myself in order to produce classic sounds, but also new sounds, when used in combination. So a 5-way Megaswitch combines them all in a useful manner and without any single coil hum. When mixed with the Piezo Volume there are so many variations to choose from, that he still can find new sounds even after all this years he has been already using it.
