New semi-hollowbody from Saint Blues

New from Saint Blues is the 61 South, avaliable in two pickup configurations. The first, featuring two of custom-wound, tapped tele-style pickups, allows the player to dial in a total of four tonal variations. Pulling up the volume or tone knob allows you to cut or 'tap' approximately 25% of the pickup signal. At the bridge, muscular and punchy becomes clean and clear. At the neck, deep rich blues become 60's surf. The 3-way switch gives you the ability to isolate the neck or bridge pick-up; and the option to utilize both.

The second pickup configuration features a tapped tele-style pick-up on the bridge with P-90s at the neck. This produces a brighter sound with more biting treble response for screaming guitar work. Each version of the 61 South comes in two colors: white blonde and tobacco sunburst.
