In order to celebrate our independence from guitars that do not inspire us, we roll out a two for one special edition of the Guitar of the Day Holiday Edition!!!
Who needs fireworks when you have Flaxwood? Tell me that these do not inspire you to wail out the first few bars of the Star Spangled banner, Hendrix style…….or maybe that is just me, but I am no longer allowed to do so at our local park due to some issue with setting things afire in a public park being a no no.
Any who, on to the show.
Humbucker muscle and single coil clarity
To bring you the best of two worlds, the Flaxwood Voima HSH-T in Tobaccoburst (voima = strength, vigour, fortitude, force) features two humbuckers and one single coil pickup, all Seymour Duncan. Like the Laine, the Voima also comes equipped with a blender pot, which gradually blends the neck pickup signal with that of the bridge pickup, giving you a virtually limitless sonic palette from which to find your sound.
