From Andy Weber of WhaleHazard guitars we present you: the Andromeda Elite!
This semi-hollow take on his unique original design offers woody, natural tone when plugged in or unplugged. Wrapped in an ultra-clean tortoiseshell binding, this guitar features a natural Mahogany body with a Burnt Sugar Burst Fir top, and dons an elegant tortoiseshell pickguard which accents the finish beautifully and cleverly matches the binding. From headstock to endpin, there are numerous notable details that really tie this guitar together to make it an absolute work of art. Headstock and fingerboard inlay utilize brass, reconstituted red stone, and gold MOP- the tones of which compliment and recall the other aesthetic elements of the guitar like a song. There are no small feats regarding this beauty!
The action is superb across all 24 frets, almost completely clear of the body which makes the upper register easily accessible on the fly. Gold Tooth Righteous Sound pickups have a vintage output and a classic PAF tone that give this guitar an almost 335 twist with more cut and substance in the midrange. Three pickup positions yield a wealth of inspired sounds that keep you playing, and keep you creating. It's hard for one of us to pick this one up at the shop and not discover some new chord voicing or riff as exploration comes easy with such a well-built guitar.
Wrapped up in a waterborne finish and decked out with nickel Hipshot and Gotoh hardware, this heirloom-quality piece is entirely handbuilt and utilizes the best parts available.
Includes build sheet and Reunion Blues Continental Voyager gig bag.
