Sonic Wind CS - Open Chamber Guitar
The Sonic Wind CS is a slightly curvy new take on the Sonic Wind's modern open chamber guitar design.
The Sonic Wind CS adds a gently curved "waist" to its jet engine like body as a nod to traditional guitar design.
Aside from the waist and mahogany tone woods, everything about its body is anything but traditional.
This new member of the Sonic Wind series has the same open chamber body, which is a far cry from the familiar, old school body designs.
Hector claims that his body design helps the guitar achieve improved resonance when compared to the average solid body.
The guitar features a neck through design that is crafted from maple wood. The body allows the neck to be isolated which apparently helps improve sustain.
He equipped the guitar with low output Jason Lollar humbuckers to balance the bright maple neck, resulting in a more balanced even tonality.
The pickups are controlled by a versatile 5-way switching circuit which gives you full neck or bridge humbucker, inner or outer coils parallel, or inner coils-series. This gives you versatile pickup performance and a variety of tones.
Here is a video demo that features the original Sonic Wind guitar for your reference:
The Sonic Wind CS guitar is set for a limited production run of 20 pieces and is packaged with a molded hardcase and a 10 year limited warranty from the maker.
Sonic Wind is currently only available from the maker and are priced at breath taking $2295.
