We're excited to have just received our first ever Model 1 Special Featherweight Electric Guitar from Rick Turner Guitars.
Sonically, the Featherweights have a bit more of an “acoustic” nature to them than most solid body guitars, though you'll have no problem rocking out with the best of them. The Model 1 Featherweight shares the same hardware, pickups, and electronics as the Classic, the difference being in the wood and construction of the body.
To save additional weight the Rick Turner Team laminate the necks out of mahogany and reinforce them with carbon fibre bars in addition to the standard adjustable double, two-way acting truss rod. This construction helps reduce weight of the Model 1 FW to 5.5 pounds.
Back & Sides: Mahogany
Fingerboard: Ipe (Handroanthus spp)
Hardware: Active Preamp
