Over the past few years, we've had the pleasure of taking in some of Gil Yaron's guitars. While they're all unique in a way due to Gil's build processes, this particular consignment piece is pretty special.
This is the very first Sly semi-hollow electric model built by Gil, featuring some top choice old growth woods throughout, hand-wound pickups, and a combination of a beautiful gloss top finish with a "zero finish" neck and body.
Tone and feel are the name of the game here, and this Sly is a testament to what a great builder can do to maximize that in a semi-hollow design. Sitting squarely between a Gibson ES-335 and an LP Special, you're quickly rewarded with the immediacy and chirp of a great set of P90s supported by an airy, acoustic-like response. Clean tones are bell-like with great warmth and body. Overdriven, the old-growth Mahogany body showcases its fat midrange response with a biting top end. The neck carve has a late 50s feel to it, with a medium-full C shape that's light on the shoulders, making it super comfortable up and down the neck.
