This model was designed and developed in close relationship with Budda Guedes, Portuguese musician, and it’s something rather unique. It has an array of options that give the player a colorful palette of tones.
There is one slidding switch that overrides the 6 way switch to give the bridge and neck pickups in out-of-phase, going through a blend pot. There is a slidding switch to cycle between 2 options of treble bleeds.
Past versions had a sliding switch for the bridge and middle in series or parallel, but future versions will come with a switch to give bridge plus neck, overriding the 6 way switch and going through a second blend pot.
