SAPPHIRE S4V SB

I really appreciate versatility with minimal controls. This guitar is no exception. The "S" style pickup configuration, utilizing Suhr Landau model pickups, gives you all the standard tones you'd expect, plus a push pot on the first tone control that goes straight to the two bridge pickups wired as a humbucker. It works as a great lead boost with a smooth, focused sound. The other tone push pot adds either the neck or bridge pickup and gives you the option to have the two outside pickups, or all three. And the Ilitch Noise Reduction System quiets down those single coil pickups up to 90% without compromising their wonderful tone.
