Great 8

The Great 8 electronics mod is one of our most demanded mods. With this mod we double the sonic spectrum of our two-humbucker instruments. You still have the full powered tone of each humbucker and the traditional settings to give you neck, bridge or both. With Great 8 we add two push-pull switches to the volume and tone knobs, that when pulled up one coil of the humbucker is disengaged giving you a cleaner single coil tone. You can control each pickup separately, maximizing your options. What can you do with 8 sonic options?

53DB

Big tone and versatility are the calling card of the 53DB. With a double humbucker configuration, you start with a full array of classic tones often missing from a guitar of this style. We then added our custom electronics modification called the Great 8 allowing you to switch those humbuckers into a single-coil tone. This is done using two provided push-pull pots. Have fun with these eight distinctive tonal options!

The body on the 53DB is made from alder and has a great looking flame maple top. The instrument is feature-packed and fun to play; full specs below.
