New Vanguard 16

  • Price: $

    Serial No. 549 (This guitar is no longer available.)

    The Vanguard combines carved, solid wood top, back, and sides with a mounted pickup. There are several advantages when building the pickup and controls into the top as opposed to a floating style pickup. There are many pickups to choose from; some players prefer the amplified tone of a mounted pickup over a floater; there is more range to the adjustments of pickup and pole piece height; controls are more conveniently located and of higher quality than “mini” types used in floating installations. The use of carved plates and solid woods allows a very good acoustic tone to match up with a distinctive amplified sound. The 16″ body is very comfortable to play, and the guitar weighs less than 5 pounds.

    This guitar has a satin lacquer finish. It features Macassar ebony appointments including: Fretboard, peghead face and back, pickguard, tailpiece, bridge, healcap and vol./tone controls.
