We started with a particularly stunning 1964 guitar as a model, worked in everything else we've loved in other "S" guitars and then tweaked them to perfection. The blend control (true bypass when all the way up) allows the excellent pickup combinations of neck and bridge & all three together, as well as the unique blended options that are unattainable on vintage guitars without losing the classic 3-knob layout. As with all of our instruments, these are consistently great playing and feeling with a very natural balanced feel on your lap or on a strap.
