• Liese

Sometimes, when we see a piece of wood, we know what guitar it‘s going to turn into. Like this awesome flamed maple. Liese‘s shape is able to show a lot of this beautiful wood, so we took it. The handcarved violin shapes of the top wood get accentuated by the green-to-nature burst. Together with the padouk fretboard the colours reminded me on the caprese salad so I called the finish Basil Burst.
Liese is playable easily up to the highest (22th) fret, because the bigger single cutaway allows access.
You can hear relations to the classic LP because of the 628mm scale and the humbuckers but the light, semi-hollow body and the stiff neck make it more tidy, tight but still punchy.
