Guitar made in 2009 in France by luthier Tom Marceau.
Neck through 24frets. Diapason 635mm.
Mechanical and Hipshot fixed bridge and nut-bearing.
Two P90 pickups custom, hand-wound!
Three-position switch, 2 volume knobs (one for mic) and a general tone.
In terms of finish, great art ... Namely it is a custom model and you can see Tom with all of personalization options, although, of course, that may change the price!
For model I, a little more to the table on which I dappled maple cracked, but you have what it takes!
The body is mahogany and quilted maple top on maple neck with ebony folds and ebony also with a tackle on his head made from quilted maple for the table on which is encrusted logo Tom. The only all oiled and waxed which further emphasizes the natural wood and is just the trademark of Tom (although it now offers paint and color. Template NG to see!).
Suffice to say that the general report is breathtaking ...
Last detail, present on all the instruments of Tom, the access plate to the electronics is made of wood and stand with small magnets, which allows fast access, albeit on the back , it's nice not to have a big ugly plastic plate on a fine wooden instrument.
Oiled and waxed wood brings a warmth unmatched by varnish, try it now!
The handle is also made to measure after trying various styles, so he comes to hand ...
Access to acute poses no real problem with the muzzle (see photo to get an idea).
The guitar is pretty light and the shape I was never embarrassed that this is in play sitting or standing.
Again, it's tailor-made, so yes this guitar is perfect for my style. Style rather inclined towards jazz and funk music.
I play on a Peavey Bandit 112 (yes it is on this contrasts with the guitar) and I've managed to get the sound I wanted: While round and clean for jazz and bossa, light crunch to the funk, or saturated for blues / rock. The palette of guitar sound is very rich with these two volumes that allow swinging the presence of each microphone. I have a strong preference for low and very present in the game chicken picking, and this guitar can really bring out the low round but not overwhelm the mids and highs.
I played with for a year and a half now and I'm not near the
I * really * tried about thirty guitars and leaned my choice for a PRS before I decided to do this with Tom. And he has clearly convinced me and guide me to get a guitar that will give me the comfort of playing and sound manner.
One side of the skyscraper I love is the uniqueness and personalized to the end. At every concert, I always had questions about the gear! It surprises, intrigue, both at the sound of the visual.
What I like least is really: .... voila.
The price / quality ratio is excellent, especially the monitoring of the instrument, if something goes wrong the friend Tom is still here! I remake that choice without hesitation.
Last accuracy, the 10 are all fine and well deserved. Check her out and see for yourself!
