Where Obtained: wurlitzer music and sound
My guitar is a beautiful pure white double cutaway, with dual lipstick silver coil pickups. she has a volume and tone controll, but the pickups cannot be split or blended. her tuner mechanism s are a little sketchy, and she's a little banged up, but she's a beaut to be sure.
I fell instantly in love with this guitar from the moment I first played her. she has a nice action up untill you move up to the higher frets, and there also she dosen't stay in tune when you're fretting up there. but a slight setback. but you can bend all over the place.
I use her for every type of music I play, blues, jass, and simply screwing around, she has a very warm, light tone, and can be very powerfull if need be. with the right amp, and pedal, anything can be achieved. when not plugged into any tone altering device, her sound is verry supple, and warp, but not as saturated as a telecaster, instead, it is a lighter, vibrant tone, with warmth and depth.
Seeing as I pamper her, i wouldn't know, but it looks as if she's been around. the's had a couple of patches, and bor than enough bumps, but she's still a pretty sight to see.
I play mandolin and electric guitar so this naturally intersted me. Strings on standard tuning, however extra frets allow you to play that sweet mandolin sound. So cool. Body has cool 'long-horn' design, that allows for easy fretting. I love it.
