Macmull Heartbreaker On Stage With The Classic Rock Show

It’s always a treat seeing instruments from our luthiers out in the world on stages, in the studio or simply in the hands of someone who will cherish and look after it for as long as they play. 

This week we received a clip from our good friend James Cole of his group ‘The Classic Rock Show’ that we just had to share with you! Not least because it shows off what the mighty Macmull Heartbreaker is capable of in the hands of session legend and YouTube Guitar hero Pete Thorn, but for the sheer feel-good factor of this stellar take on The Who’s Iconic track, set to brighten your week going into the Easter Weekend! 

The Heartbreaker in question is a twin in specification to our current dual P90 Chestnut Bronze model and a real pleasure to hear sat in a mix and sounding absolutely sublime.

This gorgeous Heartbreaker Custom in Chestnut Bronze is Macmulls take on one of the most iconic electric guitars in history, albeit in this case with a few twists that make it something very special indeed.

Starting from a traditional foundation the body is made up of a single piece of lovely kiln-dried Alder, hand picked as with all Macmull guitars for its lighter weight and resonance, the idea being that lighter wood sounds better with a sharper attack and dryer, more 'vintage' tone.

The next big contribution to the feel and sound of the guitar is the Premium Maple neck topped with a Madagascar Rosewood fretboard, and with an Oval 'C' profile and 9.5" radius it truly does a spectacular job of marrying authentic vintage feel with maximum playability. 

The guitar features a set of Macmulls custom p-90 style pickups, which really set the guitar part from other 't-type' instruments. These slightly more powerful single coils deliver a bold and fat tone while retaining the punch and sparkle often lost in p-90 style pickups. 

In all the guitar comes together to make an authentically vintage feeling instrument that proves incredibly versatile, not to mention visually striking. 

The guitar comes with a custom Hardcase and Macmull branded leather strap.

This Macmull Heartbreaker is an awesome take on one of the most iconic guitars in history, and who better to take on such a task than this passionate trio of die-hard vintage tone chasers. 

The Macmull ethos centres around the idea that lighter body woods sound better, so for this guitar we have a lovely lightweight kiln-dried ash body which not only gifts the guitar with a gorgeous dry and present tone but also makes for an exceptionally comfortable gigging guitar.
