ELECTRONICS: Include a pair of special 5 lead Lace Alumitone HBs with a L.R. Baggs piezo bridge for magnetic / piezo output in mono or stereo.

  • MAGNETICS: Loaded with an almost unique set of Lace 5 lead Alumitone HBs. The Alumitones are a revolutionary design to begin with, and sound outstanding. There are only 2 factory made 5 lead sets in existence, both made for Onyx Forge through the good graces of Jeff Lace. The volume and tone controls are push / pulls, the volume pulled switches the Alumitones to series mode, the tone pulled de-phases the neck pickup to the bridge pickup and piezo bridge; each magnetic pickup features a dedicated 3 way mini switch that takes advantage of the 5 leads, switching the coils within each Alumitone to series / split / parallel modes. Both pickups are routed through a balance / blend pot with a middle detent for a very wide tonal range. All internal wiring channels and cavities are coated with grounded conducting paint for very quiet operation.

  • PIEZO: An L. R. Baggs hardtail piezo bridge combined with a Baggs Control X preamp. The preamp features a pot, 3 way switch and a push / push stereo / mono switch. The 3 way selects for output of piezo / mag / both. The pot acts as a balance / blend pot in the mono mode, or the piezo volume in the stereo mode. The guitar was supplied with an L. R. Baggs 'Y' cord, which allows separate feed of the piezo and magnetic signals into 2 amps or 2 separate channels. The guitar works with a standard jack in the mono mode.

  • Unitec level 1 heavy duty case, black ampfelt exterior, ball corners, full length hinge, heavy duty handle, custom fitted recessed interior in black.
  • 15' stereo to 2 mono channel 'Y' cable
  • Truss rod and bridge saddle wrenches, dust cloth, user manual written for this custom, 10 year warranty.
