Citron Guitars will present 3 new models at Winter NAMM '09.


The Citron HG is 2 1/2" thick, mostly hollow Acoustic/Electric 6-string guitar, whose body is Mahogany, with a Quilted Maple top, one-piece Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard. The bridge is Rosewood with a wide custom-compensated bone nut, and strings go through the body.
The pickups are custom-blended humbuckers. Each pickup is voiced for its position. The controls are master volume, blend (between the magnetic pickups, and the Piezo under the bridge saddle by EMG), tone for the magnetic pickups, 3-position pickup selector for the magnetic pickups, treble/bass cut and boost for the Piezo by EMG, and a mono/stereo switch which gives you the ability to separate the outputs of the magnetic and Piezo circuits.
The guitar runs on 18 volts.

The Citron 4-string J bass is a 2" thick version of a Jazz, with a Maple top over an Ash body (the Ash body is bored out — honeycombed), the neck is three-piece laminated Maple, with a Pau Ferro fingerboard. The strings can go through the body or not. There is a volume control for each pickup, a passive tone, and treble and bass boost (OPB1by Aguilar).

The Citron AEG-12 is a 2/12" thick, mostly holllow Acoustic/Electric 12-string guitar, whose body is Mahogany, with a Sitka Spruce top, one-piece Mahogany neck with Ebony fingerboard. The bridge is Macassar Ebony with a wide custom-compensated bone nut, and strings go through the body.
The Alnico 5 magnets are of a different size than usual. The controls are master volume, blend (between the magnetic pickup and the Piezo under the bridge saddle by EMG), tone for the magnetic pickups, treble/bass cut and boost for the Piezo by EMG, and a mono/stereo switch that gives you the ability to separate the outputs of the magnetic and Piezo circuits.
The guitar runs on 18 volts.
