I have been working on building a solid body single cut electric for years. Not just any solid body, but a modernized one. A solid body guitar that could cover all the sonic bases and at the same time provide a player with a platform to express his or her individual voice. It can rip, tear and scream through a solo, but with a finely tweaked resonance and presence.
The fit, finish and wood selection are beyond stellar. The way the one piece mahogany body and highly figured silver maple top are carved for comfort and tone, the powerful way the neck joins the body, all hide glue joinery, every single detail has been painstakingly thought out and executed to perfection.
The Master Burst is made for the player who wants to go deep, to explore their relationship with a classic style guitar that is next level stuff.
