Duane in the membrane

By Rob

from Albuquerque, NM

This guitar is a one of a kind. A bigsby, Seymour Duncan single coils, and piezo bridge. Ever think of putting a whammy bar on a Martin? Well Gibson has come close to this crazy concept. The Custom shop quality is very impressive. The only thing not quite set up to my taste was the high E string was a little too close to the edge of the fretboard. I've owned the Duane Eddy hollowbody for a couple of years now. My favorite thing about it is the ability to add some high end sparkle via the "acoustic" piezo pickup to the electric sound of the single coils. Really gives it a one of a kind sound. You can also blend the 2 single coils together, and even add the acoustic sound on top of that. My favorite is to turn on the piezo (via pulling up on tone knob) and blend in some of the neck pickup to supplement some electric bass tone to the acoustic sparkle. Awesome. The acoustic sound by itself is pretty good, but not so convincing that you will think you are playing an acoustic guitar. The bigsby adds a "metallic" sound that prevents my ears from thinking acoustic. Because it is fully hollow it can feed back if you get too loud and close to the amp. And yes it sounds great drenched in reverb. The body is like a smaller L5 shape, still substantial but not huge. Neck is comfortable, not too thick like some Gibsons. All in all a beautiful, interesting, and very unique guitar.
