NY Amp Show '10-Hahn Guitars, Louis Electric Demos

June 14, 2010
PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location for the 2010 New York Amp Show where he visits a room shared by Hahn Guitars and Louis Electric. In this segment, we get to check out products from both companies demoed by Merle Haggard's guitarist Redd Volkaert.

The guitar Redd is using is based on Hahn's 228 model that has one-piece swamp ash body, one-piece quartersawn maple neck with 6105 frets and is set up with hardware made by luthier Chihoe Hahn. The guitar is loaded with Budz pickups - special wound for Redd.

The Louis Electric combo is based on Fender's 5E3 Tweed Deluxe, with 6L6 power tubes rather than the traditional 6V6s. The idea behind this amp was to give players more headroom and is designed for medium-sized gigs. The controls include Tone, Volume, and Volume. The speaker in this model is a Celestion G12H30.
