Los Angeles, CA (December 12, 2014) -- Echopark Guitars has revealed the Model J to the already stunning line of handmade, made in the U.S.A. Guitars. The Model J exemplifies some of the most forgotten, yet sonically inspiring, details in feel and electronics, wood selections, mechanical components and classic design aesthetic.
The complex sonic treasures found within the Arcane Inc. USA/Echopark-designed 'Gold Coil'/JMaster pickup, combined with the brilliantly crafted Mastery offset M1 bridge and JM-style Mastery MV Vibrato, serve to inspire the deepest part of any artist's soul.
From the tones, styles, and overall funkiness found in 60's Japanese Teisco Del Rey guitars to some of the mid '50s prototypes by Southern California's modern guitar pioneers and further back to the early '50s Valco catalog, have all been the consistent muse of luthier Gabriel Currie and his constant guiding light on the journey towards creating his self described “Modern Vintage” instruments.
The Echopark Model J is the actualization of all my quirky and left-of-center muses thrown to the walls. The eclectics in all of us may just discover some new voices to guide us along our path to creation. The possibilities have proven to be endless.
