Rick Turner's iconic, endlessly versatile Model 1 is available in a variety of finishes, wood combinations and electronic set-ups. The satin finish and unbound, all solid mahogany body and neck of the Special series has an appealingly organic, acoustic feel. The "A" in the name means it's a passive model, which runs straight out with a volume and tone control with a push-pull coil cut switch on the tone control. Clean and simple!
