"Spotlight: No. 179 Short Scale Solidbody
After 17 years of building guitars, I've finally learned to keep my grubby little mitts off of my new ones. Now, after I wire them up and do the initial setup, I box them up and put them away to keep them nice and new for the buyer. Otherwise, I'd be all over this little beast. Why, it'd be in shreds by now. Practically a Relic!
Rarely for a TG-250 model, no.179 sports the fast and ferocious 24 3/4 inch scale. All but a few have had the more stately 25 1/2 inch scales. The difference is pretty noticeable to a lead player. Not only are the frets closer together, but the strings require less tension to get up to pitch... bending is a breeze, and you can go crazy with vibrato. By the fourth set, these can be very welcome features on a guitar - especially if you're a Johnny Winter fan.
Even more rare is this guitar's solid body. I haven't made a solidbody since the last century! And this is the first solid TG-250 ever. There is hardly any weight penalty because I used basswood in the core which is not only light in weight, but also has great tone.
Again, Seymour Duncan provides the horsepower. After many dozens of guitars, I still find the SH-2 "Jazz" (neck) and the SH-4 "JB" (bridge) to be simply magical. Both are tapped for singlecoil or full humbucker operation. From twangy jangle to fatty beef at the flick of a switch. Clean when you need clean, and just the right amout of dirt when you crank them up. And, like my guitars, Seymour Duncan pickups are handmade in California!"
