Manne / Falcon SB Custom / 2014 / Brown Burst / Guitar For Sale
Manne Falcon SB, custom handmade
Manne factory owner Andrea Ballarins comments:
"I designed the guitar in the spring of 2006, at the time a partnership with Eko started. The guitar was supposed to be the flagship of Italian historic brand revitalization and foreign market approach. So it had features and a design that resembled the ‘60’s-‘70’s era of funny weird Italian guitars, but with new spices that took the idea into present days, using some “Manneized” features and an uncommon but sexy 4 single-pickup layout activated by individual on-off switches. This New Falcon made last month in the Manne shop in Italy uses classic materials including a korina body with maple and laminate neck. A new addition was a headstock requested by the client that matched the Falcon Bass, a slightly bigger version of our classic 6 inline headstock. The original Falcon headstock was 3+3 almost symmetric headstock. The new headstock is good looking ! Bindings were requested both on body and headstock. A more classic 3-singlecoil layout and Vs300 bridge was chosen. Being precise, it has one mini-humbucker at bridge and 2 single-coils. So I did a new thing on this guitar, a routing technique I recently perfected for single-coil pickups that can accept both single-coils and mini-humbuckers, with same type of routing from the top. The trapeze classic single coil base has room to slip under the wood edge without the need of an awkward looking large routing from top."
With our neck/body joint system, the shape of the body allow more upper frets accessibility with a sleek profile. One of the feature that sports the Manne production is the neck/body jointer, a system that allow the neck to be installed very near the body edge without the need of a heel, giving a great access and a solid connection.
We applied this system with the result of a unique upper frets access. Manne quality neck provide fast and precise playability, commonly considered one of the best necks on the markets.
