Model EB - Big-Squire #49-140616 - Sold -
Very smooth looking E type done in Inca Silver nitro. Tonerider Hot Classic alnico 3 lead for tele pickup with Carlton Esquire switching. Position one has volume only and without tone control engaged a raw hot tone is produced. Position two has tone engaged so a warm thick tone can be pre-set. The 3 or forward position has a shaped tone with emphasis on upper mids. Some highs and lows are filtered out making this setting ideal for solo work. It sounds devastating with overdrive and distortion.

Features a custom engraved neck plate and a Dynaguide string guide from the Netherlands. The Dynaguide is made from POM and stainless steel. POM is a very tough plastic. The Dynaguide offers no resistance to the strings and is an ideal solution for the age old binding on the string guide problem for trem equipped F style guitars. It is available on any of my guitars and through my workshop. see the clips section for a demo of Brett Kingman cutting loose on an E type with the same pickup and switching.

From the client:
Hi Ray The guitar you made for my son is a credit to you. Not only does it look fantastic, it plays like a dream. The pick ups are very responsive and sound great. The Bigsby takes a bit of getting used to, but just adds to the class of the guitar. Once again thanks heaps - Might have to save up and get one of these for my own collection.
