Specimen release Luddite guitar

Specimen Guitar's recently released the Luddite, what they say represents a return to a time when pushing the envelope was less important to successful marketing than structural integrity and long-lasting functionality.

Specimen Luddite Guitar

According to the Specimen website "This Luddite is a modern manifestation of the 1920s parlour guitar. It has a single neck pickup, a tunamatic-style bridge with a short trapeze tailpiece and the neck joins the body at the 12th fret. The slotted headstock provides the strings a greater break angle over the nut. This imparts more energy from the vibrating string into the neck."
