What makes the HCDC special is Brondel's melding of a Tele bridge, achieving authentic Tele snap and twang, and a Stratocaster's ergonomic body. It's the best of both Fender worlds. Of course, his reputation and skill as an acoustic guitar maker doesn't hurt either!
Simply put? These guitars feels alive and responsive, exactly the way a great instrument should - and - coupled with a set of highly regarded Ron Ellis pickups, vintage-inspired tones and responsiveness can be coaxed from this guitar as easily as they could be if you were holding the real thing. Brilliant stuff!
