This is the fourth guitar that has the shape that we named Liese.
Maple neck, swamp ash body, two singlecoils - soundwise, this is Tele terrain. Everyone is fascinated by the prototype of electric guitars, so are we. There are still so many musicians that create the greatest music with it (Robins favourite: Julian Lage). But we are tired of its bulky design so we transfered only what we like about it to our own design.
As usual, the 3-piece neck is glued in which does not reduce the attack. Au contraire: this guitar responds fast and sounds fresh. The 2-piece swamp ash is curved which makes it lighter, more ergonomic and elegant. The knobs (1 volume, 1 tone) and the 3-way-toggle are sunk into the top a little bit.
By the way: The toggle switches what avery toggle does: neck, neck+bridge, bridge pickup. But when you pull the tone knob, you can change the inbetween position from parallel to serial which makes a more powerful sound and is a useful addition. The Singlecoils are made by Harry Häussel and are humbucking in the middle position. The cover for the electric's pocket is made of ash and stays in place with magnets. That is not only service-frendly but also has a clean look.
The wrapaound bridge is a Signum by Schaller . A very good bridge as we thing with a good setup range, a good feel and look. It is nickel-plated, like the M6 mini machines.
