Quick clip of a prototype

A quick recording of a new proto, the "electroClassic".

I used coaxial polymer piezo cable for the pickup(this is used in the security business for sensing movement in the ground). Has a standard Fishman "ampjack" and passive V/T controls.

The recording was done with both V/T set open, in otherwords, flat to the DAW. No eq or compression, just some reverb was added.

Critique the sound if you will, please......

Here's a photo of the guitar....

Hi Dave,

I'm originally a classically trained guitarist and I have tried a lot of "electric" solutions and none of them has been satisfactory. My beef with them is that there is an "unbalance" in the frequencies. Usually the bass gets very dominant while the unwound strings loose definition.

Judging from the sound clip, your guitar deasn't exhibit any of that at all. I'm quite impressed. I will go to your site immediately and see what's on offer.

The playing was very nice too.

Cheers,

Mats N

That is a great sound! This would take the place of an under the saddle piezo? like those ribbon thingies?
Sound is very rich with nice balance, could use a little more low end?
And I like the playing as well.

Here's a photo of the bridge end. If you look closely, you can see the round piezo cable under the saddle. Production models will have a closed end on the bridge so you won't be able to see it.

Que bueno amigo!!

I thought the sound was very rich and detailed. The lower frequencies resonated well, while the highs cut through for clean and articulate runs.

The guitar looks beautiful!

Cheers.
