Sage

of profound wisdom

The Sage represents my interpretation of a simple, traditional design. Most noticeable is the front arm bevel, borrowed from my acoustic guitar building. This brings a hint of modern styling and, greatly improved comfort for extended playing sessions. The Sage features a 25.5″ scale, carbon fibre reinforced neck and my Ergo three bolt neck joint for better higher register access. Essentially a simple and fun guitar, the Sage is also available as a vaulted (V), f-holed semi hollow body.

There are very few moments in someone’s life when it it dawns on them that they’re in love;

truly, madly, deeply.

The Sage features a 25.5″ scale neck with, dual carbon fibre reinforcing bars, two way truss rod and my Ergo three bolt neck joint for better higher register access. Essentially a simple and fun guitar, the Sage is also available as a vaulted (V), f-holed semi hollow body.

As with my other models, the Sage is available with a variety of options to suit most players. For those that favour a modern look and feel, the Schaller Hannes composite fixed bridge offers supreme comfort for the picking hand. For those that prefer a more traditional ‘T’ look and configuration, the Gotoh/Wilkinson WT3 bridge offers vintage style brass saddles but with the added ability of intonating each string accurately. The standard Sage comprises a three piece laminate or one piece, flat headstock neck. If a tremolo is specified then an angled headstock will usually be specified. As with all my guitars, carbon fibre is incorporated in the neck design alng with a headstock adjustable two way truss rod. A choice of pickup configurations can be specified along with a leaf or toggle switch. The Sage V features a hollow body (centre section solid) with f hole for a slightly mellower mid range focused sound.

Construction

The Sage can be built around a solid body or as the Sage V model, semi hollow or vaulted with f-hole. Both styles include a rear rib comfort contour.

Comfort

As well as a rear rib carve, the Sage also features a heavy front arm chamfer. This greatly improves playing comfort and offers a striking modern appearance.

Necks

The Ergo, filleted, three bolt neck joint developed for the Evo is executed on the Sage in a similar way. Again allowing effortless access to the upper register.
