Solomon, Master Build £3290.00
Now available for sale, the very first Solomon in the new 2018 body shape!
This is a master build model, featuring a nine piece body construction perfectly designed for balance, sustain and attack. The body woods consist of both White Ash and Swamp Ash and also features Padauk Stringers running through the body and the Ambler Customs signature Chequer Board tail-block made up from Padauk and Wenge pieces. The top wood is a stunning set of Old Growth Lace Redwood, finished in Scorched Earth Black.
A 5A flame roasted maple neck in trans black burst has an elongated neck tenon for supreme sustain and tonal transference, and features two carbon stiffening rods and a twin way truss rod internally. The fingerboard is a perfectly pitch-black piece of Gabon Ebony, 22 stainless steel frets with Bloodwood Spearhead markers.
At its heart, this guitar is a screaming metal machine, but by the use of sophisticated wiring system, is also a hugely versatile and toneful instrument. The triple set of custom designed McNelly pickups are a high output but perfectly balanced set featuring a Humbucker in both the neck and bridge position, and a Z-coil “Stagger Swagger” in the middle. The hardware is finished of with finest Gotoh TOM bridge and Tuners.
The control layouts starts with a standard 3-way toggles switch, then a master volume, master tone and finally a 4 position rotary switch. When the rotary switch is in the first position, the guitar is in standard Les-Paul style mode- Up=Neck, Middle=Neck and Bridge, Down=Bridge pickup. Position 2 is the same as 1 however it adds in the middle pickup to whichever position the 3 way switch is in. For example, if the 3 way is in up (neck) position then both the neck and the middle pickups will be active, middle and all three pickups will be active. Position 3 of the rotary switch – this coil splits both the neck and bridge Humbuckers, turning them into single coils without the middle pickup being active. The fourth and final position again acts as a coil split for both Humbucers, but this time adds in the Z-coil again for different tonal options. All in all this add for a huge selection of tonal options from one perfectly playable guitar.
This Solomon models comes hand signed and numbered with a certificate of authenticity, and a fully fitted flight case. Available for play testing at the Ambler Customs showroom in Tideswell, Derbyshire.
