Laminate Maple construction for feedback resistance and classic tone!
This T386 is a player's instrument, through and through--practical, affordable, durable, and versatile. The laminate maple body resists feedback and produces classic semi-hollow tone that is so useful in so many different styles that it could just be the only axe you will ever need! I love the feel of the neck and how sturdy and smooth it is when played throughout the entire range of the instrument. The semi-hollow design contributes a breathy fullness to the tone that gives your sound a little extra depth and character, especially when played clean. When it's time to play dirty, however, you have plenty of bite and punch for some heavier sounds and the guitar really sings with some full harmonic saturation.
The sunburst finish is gracefully applied and the attention to detail is superb, especially for a guitar at this price point. The aesthetic strikes an even balance between modesty and sophistication, and will look amazing on just about any bandstand. Call or email Sound Pure's guitar department for more information.
