The striking satin finish on this Model 1 CP Special draws attention to the natural wood grain, giving this electric an almost acoustic appeal. The Rick Turner Model 1 is best known as the electric guitar of choice of Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. The Model 1 Special, with its solid mahogany neck and resonant body, sounds very acoustic when played clean. But when plied with gain, it will sing like no guitar you've heard before. The Rick Turner-made humbucker is controlled by Volume and Tone pots, a semi-parametric EQ and push/pull coil taps.
