Soultool Customized Guitars / Sonic Muse / 2020 / Teal/Natural / Guitar For Sale
The Soultool Guitars SonicMuse is Luthier Egon Rauscher's new, advanced, chameleon-like headless guitar model. While many players see a headless guitar and turn the other way; if you are truly a sonic purist and a player who wants to get the most out of their instrument, you should not only pay close attention to this new offering from Soultool Guitars, handcrafted in Switzerland; but also be able to clearly see the massive benefits headless guitars have to offer. A properly, well thought out headless guitar design such as the SonicMuse allows the player a more stably tuned instrument with a more unified action from the nut to bridge. Most guitars, especially those with a bolt-on neck construction vibrate the most at the head-stock, eating away at the transfer of energy from body to neck when the strings are strummed or plucked. With a headless guitar this is eliminated and with the SonicMuse you can choose to use different weighted materials to tune the response of these vibrations; including on the back of the neck (where the head-stock would typically be) By adding an Aluminum weight aka "SoulDisk", the sound is thicker, more focused and overall brighter with more sustain. Using one of the Brass weights adds sustain and a slightly more profound mid-range focused tone, lastly opting for one of the wooden materials, you can expect a warmer tone, lighter weight and a little less bite. (W/ Aluminum Soul-Discs the guitar weighs 7lbs 11oz, with none it weighs right over 6lbs 8oz) Everything regarding the sonic properties and tactile response of the SonicMuse is capable of being altered by the player on the spot.
Rather than approach this challenging project through changing the pickups or another simpler less effective method; which doesn't solve any of the underlying issues with a typical electric guitar; Egon decided to approach it from a highly skilled Luthier's point of view. The results are phenomenal. The SonicMuse also has three SoulDisk weights on the back of the body, all of which are interchangeable and can be mixed with one another to form a tone unlike you've ever experienced before, it's truly tone you can feel, just as much as you can hear. With no SoulDisks applied, the guitar is at its most open; with an ethereal, complex acoustic property; uncommon, but more than welcomed in a solid-body electric guitar. Besides for the different weights there are also three different bridge supports made from the same three materials. Aluminum, Brass and Mahogany that drastically fine tune the guitars tonal pallet. The SonicMuse is constructed of only the finest materials with unsurpassed craftsmanship and attention to detail.
This is the Deluxe variation of this new model and Ser # 1. If the buyer would like to get a second neck built for even more variety tonally and feel-wise. As Soultool Guitar dealers, we can get one produced for you for $500 plus the price of shipping. Call or write us to inquire. Plugged in this instrument can do it all. This is not a guitar that is just a Jack of all trades, it is also a "Master" of all trades. From Strat like quack with the 5 way toggle, to fat hum-bucking bridge position tones and classic but more focused P-90 punch in the neck position; the SonicMuse has got you covered. The perfect travel or studio guitar for the serious guitarist or a center piece for the high-end collector, this instrument will always shine. Up close the finish and craftsmanship is astonishing to look at and feel. The fretwork and play-ability is without a doubt on another level and is nothing short of what you'd expect out of an instrument of this quality and price-point.
