Fantasy Elite FR
The Elite Line features a mahogany body capped with a 5/8" AAAA maple cap and Brazen's distinctive styling. Brazen has added a twist to make this Fantasy a rocking machine. A Floyd Rose whammy allows for extreme riffing while the satin finished maple neck gives that fast, smooth platform for shredding. Jumbo frets in a flame maple fret board round out the package. Brazen Guitars stated that whether it's light vibrato, deep dives, or screeching squeals, the Elite FR will rock your world.

Fantasy Carnival P90
The Fantasy Carnival P90 is another state of the art addition model, which was recently developed for Davey Johnstone (Elton John band lead guitarist). Whether you are looking for classic gritty tones or smooth, shimmering cleans, the Seymour Duncan P-90 pickups produce versatile tones. According to Brazen Guitars, along with Carnival's set Brazilian Patagonian rosewood neck, this new guitar provides smooth bass-end and powerful mid-range tone, while the set neck gives substantial sustain.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
