Hottie Amps’ Hottie Pickups
The company that brought us Hottie Amps has released their own
line of pups: Hottie Pickups. With the help of their friends at Seymour
Duncan, they’ve created pickups that capture the creamy distortion and
harmonic complexity of their Hottie Amps.
Hottie Amps described them as having
honey-sweet tone, touch sensitivity and
a perfect blend of warmth and presence.
They are late-fifties style humbuckers burnt
around the edges that feature nickel or
chrome covers, Alnico II magnets and are
wax potted. They’re sold as singles or sets
and custom options are available.
Tanglewood MasterDesign Series
Tanglewood Guitar Company UK is bringing its MasterDesign series to the United States. The
series was designed by Swedish master luthier Michael Sanden, and feature Sanden’s trademark
“paintbrush stroke” ebony bridge, an unadorned headstock, a single stylized “T” inlay on the 12th
fret of the ebony fingerboard, and a zero fret. The MasterDesign Series comprises six guitars with
three different shapes (Auditorium, Grand Auditorium and Super Jumbo) and each shape is available
with either mahogany or rosewood back and sides. The guitars’ tops are Sitka spruce. Each of the
guitars is fitted with a B-Band A1.2 active pickup system, with all controls and the battery compartment contained discreetly inside the body. Pictured: TSR- 1.
