Custom Classic S-Type -No. 64-100419
A few departures from the standard in this build. Included is a piezo tremolo bridge by Fishman running a separate passive output on the edge under the standard S-type output. This was developed specifically as a recording instrument with the ability to split the two signals through separate effects chains into separate channels. In a live application the two outputs could be run in a similar fashion with the pickups routed to effects and into a stage amp or PA The piezo into a preamp then PA. Endless possibilities if you into split signals and stereo imaging.

Pickups are by Mick Brierley and as usual the tone is stunning. The usual hardware set with industry standard components throughout.
