Smitty Guitars Model 3 Non Aged Mosport Green
Swamp Ash Body in a Mosport Green. String seperation and intonation is perfect on this stunning Model 3. One of the best clean sounding guitars we have ever heard, seriously! It also sounds great overdriven of course. Smitty’s pickups are as brilliant as always!
Switching options are as follows-
up = neck
mid= neck & rwrp bridge, hum cancelling
down = bridge
Slide switches 1, 2 and 3 (from left to right)
#1 up: series wiring humbucking mode for bridge and middle pickup. Thick sound, great with distortion and fuzz or a bright distorted amp. Boost in volume.#2 up: adds middle pickup in any position of the 3 way toggle Examples: 3way toggle up + slide switch 2 up : Neck and middle pickup combined, chimey sound, lots of twang, almost like a Filtertron.#3 up: phase switch when 3way toggle is in middle position and neck and bridge pickups are combined. Add slide switch 2 and the sound thins out even more.
1) 3way toggle switch down, bridge pickup engaged, slide switch 2 up gives you parallel humbucking
mode. Thickens the top strings, smooth sound, great for solos and cancels hum. Add slide switch 1 for series mode and the sound will be louder, thicker and warmer.
2) 3way toggle switch in mid position and slide switch 2 up: jangly sound, cool Gretsch impersonator, great for clean chords with delay, chorus etc.
3) 3way toggle switch in mid position and slide switch 3 on: funky out of phase sounds

WORLD GUITARS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE GUITAR STORE!
We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.
Definitely an experience walking into World Guitars! Wow!
