The guitar is available with either a korina or mahogany body and GoodTone/Häussel pickups.

Buttikon, Switzerland (June 11, 2015) -- The newest addition to Soultool’s exclusive line of boutique guitars combines swissness and perfection in construction and design while offering unrivaled sound and playability for players of almost all genres.
