Mike Kinal continues to impress with this incredible sounding and playing guitar. Perhaps more well known for his basses, Mike Kinal in fact first honed his skills by building electric 6 strings back in the late 1960's, and his deep knowledge of what makes a guitar playable really shows in this lovely Telecaster update. The first thing that immediately strikes you is the feel of the neck - it is all curves, soft and inviting and really lets you know right away that this is a hand crafted guitar. Then strumming a few chords you immediately feel how lively and resonant this guitar is, it almost feels like the body must be chambered (it isn't) because it just vibrates so freely. Plugged in, the resonance of the guitar is translated to electric signal via the state of the art passive system - a Tom Anderson lead single coil in the bridge position and the new Bartolini PBF series humbucker in the neck position. The Bartolini PBF is their most recent design and represents their most refined take on vintage humbucker tone. In addition to the strong, fat dual-coil sound, the PBF can also be tapped via the mini-toggle for a variety of thinner, clear single-coil sounds. Blended together, the two pickups produce a surprising range of traditional and 'in-between' tones.
