One of El Diablo’s personal favorites! The Swart AST has been a staple of the shop from the very first day that we opened. Inspired by a vintage Gibson Scout, this handwired 18-watt 6v6 beauty is pure Americana! Punchy and clear, the AST warms up single-coils and mellows humbuckers. When pushed, the AST growls like a tweed, with more definition and less compression. Add in the pulsating tube tremolo and cavernous reverb, and your guitar will summon tumbleweeds!
