The Pimpernel #34 - Sold - Special order -
Based on a current Fender model with a few significant changes Pickups are Mick Brierley’s muscular P90's giving this guitar a hot incandescent tone. The Chambered body gives the guitar a very alive feel and it is quite loud acoustically. This makes for a very lively guitar on stage, Cranked up it really roars and will feed back nicely if you find the sweet spot near the amp.

The owner says: "The guitar is sensational. I can’t believe the sound! The middle position sounds like “Sultans of Swing” and the bridge could cut through glass. You have done such a great job and I think you should be charging more."
