Citron Guitars release three new models

Citron Guitars are launching three new models at NAMM 09. The HG, the AGE-12 and 4-string J Bass. The Citron HG is 2 1/2″ thick, mostly hollow Acoustic/Electric 6-string guitar, whose body is Mahogany, with a Quilted Maple top, one-piece Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard. The bridge is Rosewood with a wide custom-compensated bone nut, and strings go through the body. The pickups are custom-blended humbuckers that I personally wind by hand in a formula using multiple gauges of wire in each pickup. Each pickup is voiced for its position.

The controls are master volume, blend (between the magnetic pickups, and the Piezo under the bridge saddle by EMG), tone for the magnetic pickups, 3-position pickup selector for the magnetic pickups, treble/bass cut and boost for the Piezo by EMG, and a mono/stereo switch which gives you the ability to separate the outputs of the magnetic and Piezo circuits (use a guitar amp for the magnetic pickups, and a really clean amp for thePiezo; separate effects, etc). The guitar runs on 18 volts. The tonal possibilities of this guitar are endless. The dynamic range is like the difference between looking through a pair of glasses and having peripheral vision.

The Citron 4-string J bass. is a 2″ thick version of a Jazz, with a Maple top over an Ash body (the Ash body is bored out — honeycombed), the neck is three-piece laminated Maple, with a Pau Ferro fingerboard. The strings can go through the body or not. The pickups are either straight Jazz pickups wound by hand, by me, or my own custom-blended using multiple gauges of wire to my own recipe. There is a volume control for each pickup, a passive tone, and treble and bass boost (OPB1by Aguilar). This is the most resonant Jazz bass you have ever heard, piano like, and articulate.

The Citron AEG-12 is a 2/12″ thick, mostly holllow Acoustic/Electric 12-string guitar, whose body is Mahogany, with a Sitka Spruce top, one-piece Mahogany neck with Ebony fingerboard. The bridge is Macassar Ebony with a wide custom-compensated bone nut, and strings go through the body. The pickup is a Citron single coil P90 style that I personally wind by hand to my own spec. The Alnico 5 magnets are of a different size than usual. The controls are master volume, blend (between the magnetic pickup and the Piezo under the bridge saddle by EMG), tone for the magnetic pickups, treble/bass cut and boost for the Piezo by EMG, and a mono/stereo switch that gives you the ability to separate the outputs of the magnetic and Piezo circuits (use a guitar amp for the magnetic pickup, and a really clean amp for thePiezo; separate effects, etc). The guitar runs on 18 volts.
