Rick Turner is a legendary luthier who is known for his work with Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham and this Rick Turner Model 1 BP Deluxe is a prime example of the high-quality, innovative designs one can expect from a Turner guitar. This particular model features a quarter-sawn Koa top and peghead veneer, with a chambered Mahogany body. The 5-piece laminated neck is comprised of the finest Maple and Mahogany and sports an Ipe fingerboard. 

The magic of these guitars lies in the electronics. This Model 1BP features Turner’s custom built rotating Hot Humbucker in the neck and a Piezo pickup in the bridge, as well as a D-TAR Eclipse 18V pre-amp, which allows for 3-12 dB of additional gain and a buffered output. With such a simple control layout, one is still able to achieve a wide variety of tones. Both the volume and tone control, which features a push/pull pot for the option of splitting the humbucker, are passive. Instead of a switch, the Model 1BP Deluxe features a magnetic/piezo blend knob. This allows a player to blend the humbucker and piezo pickup, choosing to focus on the midrange of the humbucker, or bring out the acoustic qualities of the piezo pickup. With its incredible detail and natural acoustic properties, this Rick Turner Model 1BP Deluxe “screams louder and longer than any guitar you’ve played”.
