Rick Turner Model 1 CP Deluxe, Koa
"In a word, the Model 1 is all about versatility. Whether you’re playing the passive model running straight out with volume and tone control (push-pull coil cut) or the high-headroom 18-volt D-TAR Eclipse preamp with Turner Parametric EQ, both options allow for blending of a piezo or second magnetic pickup."
This Model 1 CP Deluxe is everything you would expect from a Rick Turner guitar. The mahogany body feels both lightweight and acoustically resonant, elevated with a beautiful figured koa top. The torrefied maple laminate neck brings some notable stability. Rick Turner's rotating magnetic "Hot Humbucker" is assisted by the full suite of controls to maximize tonal options and versatility: a passive master volume knob, a sweep control for quasi-parametric EQ (knob and toggle), EQ 12-dB boost/cut, a passive tone control and push/pull coil tap, and a blender knob for the magnetic and piezo pickup.
