At less than four pounds, the Convertible is the lightest and most versatile XXL guitar.
The symmetrical softwood core body is heavily chambered before a top plate and a back are laminated. The neck pick-up is mounted directly in the oval soundhole to allow maximum movement of the transducer to give the convertible its mellow tone.
The versatility of this guitar is astonishing!
The bridge position can be super twangy for those country licks.
Middle position lets the funk out without being shrill as well as being “reverse wound / reverse polarity”, so it’s noise-free even if played with an overdrive.
The neck position is quite something on its own; it retains those big bass notes and has an all-round sound suitable for jazz chording and walking bass type notes.
It’s so light and responsive; it is the ideal couch guitar since its unplugged sound is much more interesting than a typical solid body guitar while being soft enough to allow you to practice late at night without any family confrontation…
