New for 2014 is this Sage single cut. I designed this while contemplating a Laskin style arm bevel on an acoustic build I was working on. While maintaining the simplicity of the original well known classic, the improved access, comfort and ergonomics add a modern twist. The flame maple top is bound in grained ivoroid that accentuates the arm contour. Originally I planned to stain the top blue but green kept playing on my mind. In the end it seemed fitting to use both colours which makes for quite a striking appearance.
The alder body offers up a strong, clear, well rounded sound and the maple top keeps the higher register snappy. The maple and rosewood neck tends to add a bit of firmness to the overall character. Carbon fiber inserts have been added to the neck to not only improve rigidity and stability, but also to improve evenness and response across the frequency range. The electronics are kept simple, with a standard three way leaf switch for pickup selection and a master volume and tone. The calibrated set of Bare Knuckle Supermassive P90 pickups certainly bring out a punchy bottom end and singing highs without being brittle. Overall a guitar with a progressive theme and a wealth of character. I love it!
