We designed and built this gem for Frank. Inspired by Bernd Kiltz’ NH1, the concept was also in the spirit of sustainability: Entirely made of local tonewoods and hardware, pickups, tuners, fret wire and strings Made in Germany. Why roam far away when we can find (almost) everything we need for a fine guitar on our doorstep?
The wooden base is provided by a Hessian body made of red cedar with a maple burl drop-top from the Penny parking lot in Mehlingen, together with a plum fingerboard from Neustadt and a walnut neck from France. The result is already a blast when played unplugged! The sound is incredibly clear and transparent with endless overtones without delivering too many annoying highs. In addition, it is extremely light and therefore super resonant with lightning-fast and precise response and a long and balanced sustain.
On the amp, the hand-wound Kloppmann pickups bring out this basic character perfectly. Always clear and transparent, warm and round without mumbling. With the HSH pickup combination and the coil split for both humbuckers, this guitar is also very versatile in terms of sound.
The hardware from Schaller and ABM, as well as Wagner fretwire and strings from Pyramid also come from Germany and are qualitatively among the best that can be found on the market and, above all, are manufactured under German standards of production and environmental protection without cheap wages.
Due to the short delivery routes of all local producers and our workshop supply with green electricity, we also ensure the smallest possible CO2 footprint.
