Solberg Sonic Guitar custom £1550+postage and packing

Comes with Hiscox Liteflite standard case. The price is  for a standard version. Choice of pickups, color and hardware. Mail me for inquires.

The Sonic body is made of solid ash and has no pick guard. I have dyed the wood with waterborne transparent yellow and it has 12 coats of matt waterborn vanish finish and then polished. The neck is maple with rosewood  a fret board medium jumbo frets and a 12 inch radius so called SRV neck. The tuners are vintage style  and locking. The pickups are custom made for me by Jamie at the Creamery in Manchester UK.

This guitar has the  sonic 60s pickups with Alnico 2 magnets and outputs of 7.0 K,6.6K and 6.3K for the bridge, middle and neck pick up respectively. These are designed to give that richer, musical sound synonymous with the old classic Burns Tri-Sonic® design. The electronics are standard, apart from the tones pots which are TBX with 80 ohms resistors and a 0.02μF Spraque on bridge tone pot and a 0.001 μF Spraque capacitor on the bridge tone pot. For further details see below.
