Details

Rick Turner is a legendary luthier who is known for his work with Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham. This Rick Turner Model 1 Deluxe is a prime example of the high-quality, innovative designs one can expect from a Turner guitar. This particular model features a AAAA-grade koa top and peghead veneer, on a chambered mahogany body. The 5-piece laminated neck is comprised of the maple and purpleheart and sports an ipe fingerboard. 

The magic of these guitars lies in the electronics. This passive Model 1 features Turner’s custom built rotating Hot Humbucker in the neck and a piezo pickup in the bridge. 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 1 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 1 Deluxe “screams louder and longer than any guitar you’ve played”.
