"Once you sit down with it, you start to really get a sense of how dynamic and complex this guitar is. We are trying to offer guitar players something they can not only connect with, but be surprised by." - Frank Brothers
We asked the Frank Brothers to make us a Goldtop guitar and man-oh-man....we are just knocked out by what they sent us!
This customized Signature Model sports a chambered body design, satin back and neck (w/rounded fingerboard edges), Throbak '52/'54 P90s, and split parallelogram fingerboard inlays? Come. On. What more do you want?
As we've said before, the moment you pick up a Frank Brothers guitar, you know you're in for something special - the quality is that obvious. All the hallmarks of a high-end instrument are present: flawless finish work, clean, crisp lines throughout, excellent fretwork, setup, and playability. We're really loving what the satin back & neck finish, along with the rolled fingerboard edges, bring to the Frank Brothers flawless build. It immediately gives you the impression of an older guitar that's been lovingly played for decades. We're suckers for builders who know how to balance impeccable build quality with a stripped-down, broken in feel. It's really addictive and inspiring with none of the issues vintage instruments can sometimes have.
This is a loud, resonant, and alive instrument - no two ways about it. The solid body construction paired with Throbak's wonderful '52/'54 P90s delivers punchy, midrange drenched, and articulate tones that excel at clean, jazzier playing all the way through fuzz-laden lead work. This guitar can cover a wide range of genres with authority - such a fun and rewarding playing experience to be sure.
What can we say? We're in love. Check this one out, we're sure you will be too. Priced with hardshell case.
Interested? We may have another on the way.
