Built as one of the stock instruments for this years Birmingham Guitar Show, this Sage was made to stand out. Fairly simple in its approach this guitar is presented with some modern twists and subtle details that make it turn heads. This is my first venture with the composite Schaller Hannes fixed bridge. Unique in both its materials and innovative design, its possibly the most comfortable fixed bridge I’ve played and its individual saddle arrangement improves clarity and chord response. The combination of neck and body woods make for an even response with a good amount of sizzle in the trebles. The single coils bring out a nice woodiness and quack with a good bit of bite. Plenty of power is available from the humbucker when needed. The HSS pickup arrangement offers a great range of tones and makes this a very versatile guitar. Manageable weight, ergonomic body features and silky neck make this a guitar that can be played and played.
