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.

Enlightened Classic 50
Seeking a lightweight guitar with traditional tone and performance? The Enlightened Classic 50 is the guitar for you. As part of the Enlightened collection, it features a number of design innovations all focused on delivering light-done-right. This includes the use of a special tone wood on the body — red cedar. We took that lightweight and great-sounding wood and then customized the body thickness and added small chambers to further lighten the instrument while protecting tone.
The pickups have been custom-voiced to perfectly match the Enlightened treatment. These deliver a a classic tone and, thanks to the Quad Mod electronics modification, you get 4 tone settings instead of the typical 3.
The Enlightened Classic 50 is a lightweight guitar, but with all of the other carefully considered design details, it is big on tone and performance.
