Mansfield, TX (November 1, 2009) -- Bell Custom Guitars has added a new series to its custom line of hand-built guitars---the SS series---uniquely designed with affordability in mind. Some of the more labor-intensive features of the existing CTS series of Bell Custom Guitars have been eliminated from the building process, making the SS line more affordable without compromising the Bell Custom Guitars’ signature tone.

“We wanted to create a line of guitars that would be more affordable for musicians and studio professionals.” said Don Bell, mastermind of Bell Custom Guitars. “Buyers are getting a lot of guitar for the money, really, but we want them in the hands of the artists.”

The SS base-model is priced as shown from $1300 and may be customized to suit personal preferences including electronics, hardware, and paint. With a maple or mahogany and acrylic fused body, the tone of the wood is maintained while making a more clear, focused sound. This fusion of materials provides crisp, sharp highs and smooth, rounded lows.

The first thing most guitarists think of when they hear the phrase “hybrid picking” is undoubtedly twangy Telecasters. While that may be the most common use of hybrid picking, it is far from the only application. Diving into hybrid picking opens a whole new world of control, timbre possibilities, ideas, speed, and more.
