    I believe the Jackson Soloist GEEtars also had one humbucker, too.
     
  4. also SG juniors and les paul Juniors have a single P-90, which i actually prefer to a humbucker.

  6. That is weird.
     
  7. Everyone's seen single-bridge-pickup guitars before. I think Woodchuck's referring to a guitar with only a middle humbucker. Gibson makes a hollowbody with that configuration.

    Thanx Peter. It only had that one p'up.
     
  9. Think about it, guys. You're not likely to see single-bridge-humbucker "shred machines" on BET Jazz.

    Of course, if the guitarist was Allan Holdsworth, I'm all wet.

    Well, Teufel means devil in German (Teuffel is just a surname variant).

    It's actually very ergonomic, judging from the (only) magazine review I've read.

    The guitar comes with 2 additional wood tone tubes (those blue cylinders) for a sound alternative.

    What did the review say about ergonomics?

    And how woulkd the wooden tubes make a sound difference? You arent playing anywhere near them and the pick up cables just pass behind them. :confused: :)

    can you deliver a baby with that guitar? wow, how handy! :)
     
  20. The wood is supposed to affect the tone because it is the only thing between the neck and the bridge. Maybe there is a metal rod in the middle there, I can't quite see if that is structural or not. Any vibrations will be passing right through there, so I guess the idea is that you can pick and choose what sort of material is sonically connecting your neck and bridge.

    Gimme a Strat any day. :)
