Soothsayer is an homage to the ground-breaking technology and the vision of Leo Fender. Engineered and improved body contours along with calculated distribution of sound waves and vibrations paired with versatile Bare Knuckles Pickups Impulse set allowed us to create a proper tribute to the 1954 classic.

It is quite obvious at the first glance that there’s a Gotoh 510 series tremolo, double-cut shape, it all leans to famous S-type guitar. However, however, however...We wired it the way that positions 2 and 4 are splitting both pickups, position 2 - outer coils, position 4 - inner coils. It appeared that those split-coil positions are from another guitar, which came out even earlier, in 51. Soothsayer is more than meets the eye. "Soothsayer" is equipped with an Impulse set from Bare Knuckle Pickups. We just love Bare Knuckle pickups for their versatility. To access those tones you have a 5-way super-blade with coil-splitting positions 2 and 4. No-Load tone pot, which in position ‘10’ does not engage our military spec’d tone cap, allowing the pickups to be oneself (give it a turn and you have another tool to alter your sound) with Pure Tone jack ensure the sound quality and stability. For tuning stability and the quality of strings vibration, we appointed GraphTech nut and string tree, along with Gotoh series 510 locking tuners and Gotoh 510 series 2-point tremolo bridge. We chose an alder body with or without top paired with a quarter-sawn or 5-piece maple/walnut neck, titanium-reinforced in both cases, for extra-stability.
