FAME BAPHOMET II HIGHLIGHTS
Hollowbody construction made of basswood
The body of the Fame SE Series Big Boy OR Orange is made of vibrant basswood, which provides the best resonance characteristics in the proven laminate construction. Thanks to the tone bar installed under the bridge, the hollowbody remains free of feedback at slightly higher gain settings, which makes it feel right at home in the tonal realms of typical blues crunch. In addition, the top has been given a figured maple veneer, whose three-dimensional flame makes for interested looks./span>
Bigsby-style vibrato in gold finish
The functional and visually appealing hardware equipment of the Fame SE Series Big Boy Orange consists of a versatile adjustable Tune-o-Matic bridge with rosewood base and an additional Bigsby-style vibrato for shimmering pitch modulations, while six Grover tuners on the headstock ensure absolute tuning stability. All hardware parts have a noble, uniform gold finish.
Fame Tron-Style Humbucker
For sound conversion at the amplifier, two Fame Tron-style humbuckers are used in the neck and bridge position. The double coils with moderate winding and Alnico magnets conjure up a mild vintage output with extremely distinctive mid-range warmth, in order to be able to assert themselves appropriately in the band context at any time. Both pickups are switched via two 3-way switches as well as two volume controls and an additional treble control.
