'SY' - THE ROCK SPIRIT

Fine and fluid lines for a legendary model

A LITTLE HISTORY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

The original shape of this guitar was released in 1961. Supposed to replace the "aging" shape of the Les Paul of the same brand, it was immediately adopted by rock guitarists for its lightness and ease of handling. On the other hand “Les Paul” did not like the design at all… But the model was kept under the name we know it today. its original strengths, and to give it new ones.

SIMPLICITY OF WOOD

The SY consists of a "full piece" walnut body and neck, and topped with an amaranth top. Its oiled finish gives you direct contact with the wood.

NECK THRU

The central part of the guitar consists of a single piece of walnut and an ebony fingerboard. The fluidity of the line is reinforced by its "double cut" design.

ROUND AND LENGTH ...

The density of walnut and amaranth brings the fat and roundness expected on this type of instrument ... Not to mention the note holding that lasts, that lasts ...

VERSATILITY

Unlike the original model, we opted for a pair of P90 + PAF 57 pickups, associated with a Piezo. Suffice to say that the sound palette is wide.
