SPECIAL EDITION COREY MODEL

$11,500.00

THE COREY MODEL IS THE SIGNATURE GUITAR OF GUITARIST/TEACHER/COMPOSER, COREY CHRISTIANSEN. THIS IS THE MODEL HE USED ON HIS  2 NEWEST, HIGHLY ACCLAIMED CD'S LONE PRAIRIE AND FACTORY GIRL. COREY, ALTHOUGH ROOTED IN JAZZ HAS HAS EXPANDED HIS HORIZONS AND MELDS IN BLUES, COUNTRY AND ROCK FOR HIS OWN ECLECTIC STYLE. COREY NEEDED AN AXE THAT WAS VERSATILE ENOUGH TO HANDLE ANY SITUATION SO WE BUILT HIM THIS MODEL THAT CAN TAKE WHATEVER HE CAN THROW AT IT AND THEN SOME. THE TOP AND BACK ARE LOCKED TOGETHER WITH A BLOCK DOWN THE CENTER TO VIRTUALLY ELIMINATE FEEDBACK, THE NECK IS SUPER COMFORTABLE TO PLAY AND THE OVERALL CONSTRUCTION IS SOLID TO WITHSTAND ALL OF THE ABUSE A MUSICIAN ON THE ROAD CAN PUT HIS GUITAR THROUGH. ON THIS PARTICULAR GUITAR WE DEVIATED SLIGHTLY FROM THE STANDARD MODEL. I HAVE BEEN PLAYING AROUND WITH DIFFERENT STYLE PICKUPS LATELY AND REDISCOVERED LINDY FRALIN. I CHOSE HIS HIGH WIND PURE PAF BECAUSE i LOVED THE WARMTH AND PUNCH OF THE TONAL QUALITY. i MOVED THE REAR PICKUP CLOSER TO THE FRONT PICKUP, WHICH ALLOWS ME TO WIRE THEM IN SUCH A WAY THAT i CAN SPLIT THE COILS FOR THAT VINTAGE STRAT "QUACK". I CHANGED THE INLAYS UP A BIT AND WENT WITH MOTHER OF PEARL BLOCKS WITH EBONY STRIPES. THE HARDWARE IS GOLD INSTEAD OF THE STANDARD NICKEL WHICH I THINKS ADDS A BIT OF PANACHE TO THE LOOK AND FINISHED IT OFF WITH A STUNNING KOA PICKGUARD AND KOA MOUNTING RINGS.  TRULY A GUITAR FOR THE AGES.
