Great 8 Mod
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 tone knobs, so 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?
With its iconic look, striking finishes, and endless tonal options, the Patriot Decree is destined to be your favorite instrument. The Patriot Decree gets its signature sound from two over-wound PAF-inspired humbucker pickups. Featuring the Great 8 mod, two push-pull knobs allow you to split the coils for switching from a rich, thick humbucker to smooth, bright single-coil sounds. A total of eight distinctive pickup configurations offer a wealth of options for any playing style or genre.
A chambered mahogany body with deeply carved figured maple top provides a robust warm sound with a clear punch. A deep contoured heel provides easy access to the upper frets. Its modern “C” profile mahogany neck with 24.75” scale offers a comfortable feel and is capped by a Macassar Ebony or Roasted Jatoba (Cherry Sunburst) fingerboard. A Tune-O-Matic bridge along with string-thru body design results in precise intonation and incredible sustain. Pick up a Patriot Decree and you’ll quickly agree that it’s the perfect instrument for any player.
