This Doublestar RawTone comes in a tasty »Tobacco Sunburst« and a true one piece tortoise celluloid! Heavy Glendale Raw Deal knobs round up the everlasting feel of old school quality.
This guitar truly internalizes our concept of mixing not only the look but also the construction of electric guitar tone heritage. Being a set neck mahogany guitar, with a string through bridge (Mastery M3) and a long scale neck, it combines qualities unheard so far in one guitar. Going along this path, we made a pearly hand wound PAF type HB for the neck and a broad T-style bridge pickup in order to get the right bite a rhythm guitar needs especially in the in-between pickup position.
After extensive research on one of this first electric bridge pickups in the 50ies, we found a recipe based on steel guitar pickups which suits that pearly HB so well! Our speciality are also the double stacked pots (250/500), which let each pickup see its right kOhm value and its own capacitor in the circuit!
This guitar is custom made for you.
