QUAD MOD

The Quad Mod gives you the traditional three-position tonal performance, while adding a valuable 4th pickup setting. This added tonal option turns on both neck and bridge pickups in series which is a thick and punchy tone much like a humbucker. However considering the two coils are located in completely different locations on the guitar the tone is as unique as it is useful and a welcome addition to the standard two single coil pickup configuration.

Burl 50 Ultra

The Birdseye Burl Maple top on the Burl 50 Ultra will catch your eye, but wait until you play it! Fun, versatile, smooth, and bold are some of the words that players have used to describe their take on the Ultra. The all-Korina body is lightweight but has a thick tone, akin to a fine piece of mahogany. The burl top/Korina body combination delivers articulate highs and lots of guts in the lows and mids. We modded the electronics to give you a little something extra. The Quad Mod gives you that valuable fourth, fat tone. Read more about it and see all of the settings above. We equipped the Burl 50 Ultra with a Rockfield combination that remains our most-requested for traditionally configured 50s series models.

Available in three striking color options, each designed specifically to maximize the appearance of the Birdseye Burl Maple top. The black hardware adds a touch of mystery and allows the exotic wood and custom color combination to really pop. This is a head-turning guitar that has the tone to back up its good looks.

MODERN-C

Comfort without sacrifice, that is how you might describe our Modern-C shape. The size is what many would call medium to medium-thin and the shape is a really smooth and comfortable round shape. The thin profile makes it faster than the typical vintage neck, while the carefully contoured C-shape makes it comfortable for extended playing.
