Geert's Superstrat with EVERYTHING!

Geert's Superstrat with EVERYTHING!

Geert has had several guitars made for him by me over about 20 years. They are always special but this time he went over the top with the specification. He wanted a carved top Superstrat with a through neck, a trem with piezo saddles and a Graphtech preamp, HSS pickup layout, with a Sustainiac. Also his trademark (by now) inlays and faux binding. So through neck of maple laminates with wings of Irish fiddleback sycamore. Double stained black cherrey quilted maple and a silk finish. This all took a while to sort out and I'm very pleased with the result. Consider the control cavity - three stacked pots with push-pull switches, the GraphTech acoustic pcb, the large Sustainiac pcb, two outlet sockets, a 5 way switch and a mini switch. It's a bit crowded. But it all works and sounds fantastic. You have the usual passive sounds which are excellent with natural sustain, then the ability to sustain any note to infinity, control feedback or sound like an acoustic guitar and, in each case you have a working trem. Vesratility is a word that is perhaps over used, but not in this case. There is now an 8 minute long video of Geert playing Parisienne Walkways in the Workshop Video section of the website.
