Artist BLACK58IIX Black Gloss Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar
This classic style guitar has existed in many forms since it was first released in 1958. Since then it has been coveted by some of the greatest Rock 'n Roll, Blues, and Jazz guitarists that the world has ever known. Legendary names like BB King, Freddie King, John McLaughlin, Larry Carlton, Jorma Kaukonen, Eric Clapton, and Elvin Bishop are among the multitude of players who have loved the diverse tones that this type of instrument offers. Now it's your turn!
This is a great sounding instrument and aesthetically beautiful at the same time. It features a 3 piece Maple neck with an Ebony Fretboard. The 22 frets show off the inlays, with a special edition "X" at the 12th fret. With the comfortable "C"-shape neck, the wheeled tune-o-Matic bridge, and a locking stop-bar tailpiece, you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.
The BLACK58IIX sports our Signature Bullbucker individual Coil Splitting pickups which means that you have the option of the warm throaty tones of the neck pickup or the biting clean sounds of the bridge pickup. These can be coil-split to provide single-coil tones, so you can put a stamp on all those great blues solos and wail like the greats or you could darken the tone to suit the "cool" of any dingy little jazz club.
