A very unusual custom
May 14, 2010
Here's a quick snapshot of a very special (and pretty different) piece we just finished...
(Of course, one of the most unusual parts for us is that it's a standard-tuned 6-string guitar! Yes, we do make them):
Here's the story:
Custom body shape
Hipshot "Trilogy" multiple tuning bridge: allows 729 different possible tunings (3 different notes per string!), along with pedal-steel type bending effects
Special knob locations for 'rolling' volume and tone while playing
GraphTech "Ghost" piezo bridge
Dual Duncan Vintage Rails pickups
Eclipse blender preamp
This guitar was custom-made for Joey Weisenberg,
a renowned klezmer musician from New York City.
We can't wait to hear what he does with it!
