• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    Table here

    Supporting Membership Guide

    • Monthly Supporting Members will remain Supporting Members
    • Current annual Supporting Members will now be Silver Supporting Members. Perks and permissions remain the same
    • Current Silver Supporting Members will now be Gold Supporting Members
    • Current Gold Supporting Members will now be Platinum Supporting Members
    • A new level will be created - Double Platinum Supporting Members

    All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.

(Both dealer pics but these are mine...)

Top is a Special with an Exceptional Burl top over Spanish Cedar finished in Starry Night with a neck P90 and bridge 1959+. The P90 cover and control knobs are made from ebony which is a rather elegant touch.

Bottom is simply a “Prototype” as per the back of the headstock/certificate - a bit of a hybrid between a Special/Krautster II with a Bigsby. The neck is open-pore mahogany vs maple on the KII - pickups are neck P90 and Hot-B in the bridge of that one. Silver dot inlays as well ftw...

@Whitecat - I'm really curious to hear your opinion on the 59+ bridge vs. the Hot bridge. Thanks in advance!

Believe it or not I’ve never really played these side-by-side/back-to-back before... gonna have to do that and I’ll report back. Both are pretty hot in the end though. I suppose the 1959+ is meant to be a little less pushy in the mids & might have the illusion of a little more detail/clarity as a result but I’ll have to compare and contrast.

More pics of that burl!... WOWWWWW
Only some more dealer pics handy but will try to get some in its adopted habitat soon... it’s very hard to photograph, I will tell you that much. :)

Indeed - around 6lbs! And incredibly resonant. The devil is in the details with Hubers - they've spoiled me for other brands. I'd love to try a Dolphin some day.
