Siegmund Unveils Its Suspense Guitar
The Suspense is a hollow-body electric guitar designed to give sound without the problems associated with conventional hollow-body instruments when amplified, according to Siegmund.
Floating braces are suspended inside a hollow body that support the wrap-around bridge, which is not attached to the top like on other guitars. The pickups receive a quality from the vibrating strings similar to the lively and dynamic character of acoustic hollow-body guitars.At the same time, the neck and strings generate sustain equivalent to set-neck and neck-through solid body guitars.
The design of the Suspense is designed to allow for playing in a loud amplified environment without fighting out-of-control droning feedback, yet providing the resonant tone balance of an acoustic instrument.
The Suspense has the appearance of a solidbody guitar but the lively tone from the pickups sounds and feels like a semi-acoustic.
Construction time: 70 hours - Weight: 6.7 lbs. Other wood combinations and a flat top version are optional.
The Suspense is individually made to order with custom options. Price depends on construction time plus cost of hardware and parts.
The Suspense guitar with the options as shown and described is $5850.
