Folgore 1 was built around a pair of antique De Armand pick ups. But those pick ups never allowed the guitar to sing. So we are replacing them with custom built Alchemy pick up P90's for which we have designed and built new rosewood covers. The new ones are more designed with curved tops and bevelled edges. The finish is 'gun stock oil' which is being applied here in stages. The old pick up covers can be seen below. The new ones have a much improved mounting solution.
The guitar will be loaded with a Hipshot fixed string through body bridge, Fishman Fluence 7 Anico/Ceramic humbuckers two sped weighted and recessed knobs with one volume, two tones and a three way selector. It has a 'hidden' jack. The walnut top will be much darker when finished and the figure will pop out.
