Nashville, TN (September 13, 2017) -- Schuyler Dean began making hand-carved guitars in 2015 and has been designing some totally custom takes on vintage classics. The Duelsonic takes a familiar offset alder body, maple neck, 25.5” scale and adds stereo electronics, gold foil pickups, a behind-the-bridge pickup and premium hardware.

Access stereo controls by operating an A/B footswitch, sending bridge and neck pickups to two different amps or signal chains. This allows for a wide range of sonic possibilities. Or just plug in a standard mono cable for normal operation. Features include:

Features:

  • Gold pearl nitrocellulose lacquer
  • 100% handmade construction
  • Mastery vibrato
  • Gold foil Jazzmaster pickups
  • Case, footswitch, and 15’ stereo cable

Handmade in Schuyler’s Nashville workshop, Duelsonic guitars carry the following price: $2750
