E-guitar Jane / electro guitar

E-guitar Jane

Janes‘ body consists of three different layers. The middle layer is
framed with aluminium and connects the neck & the bridge to
achieve a better resonance. The front and the back is made of a 3d-veneer.
Through this combination of material & innovative design a new electro guitar
experience has been created for an unbelievable, warm & vibrant sound.
No normal 3-way-switch has been used to select between the different
pick-ups but a smooth 1-touch-sensor-system hidden below the veneer
which allows to mute the guitar without turning off the volume control.
LED-lights show if the pick-up is switched on or off.
