SonicF guitars are exclusive in Australia to Just Guitars, and we're absolutely stoked to present the latest pair of custom built offerings from Seattle builder Sean Folan*. First up is the Z15 – a guitar with such out there styling it's thirty minutes into the gig before you've even plugged in!
SonicF # 15
Sometimes building from scratch, sometimes recycling bodies and parts from vintage instruments, every SonicF guitar is a complete one-off. The model number is also the serial number; the Z15 is therefore just the fifteenth of Sean Folan's SonicF production models.
Featuring a hand-carved, semi-hollow Purpleheart body, (with highly resonant, quarter-inch timber all around), the interior boasts a solid Purpleheart bridge block, for maximum resonance and sustain. The guitar weighs in just over 7lb, (3.2kg), giving you an idea of just how solid these body timbers are. And finished in genuine nitro 'Blackwash Natural', the looks are impeccable.
Maple neck; 25.5" scale Rosewood board with super-cool "icicle" inlays; a pair of Tonerider Alnico II 'Rocksong' humbuckers; Gotoh tuners; combination LP Jr bridge with Tone-Pro's 'System II' locking studs. This is a prestige package all the way!
Vintage bumble-bee caps!
Further enhancing the brilliant, supercharged PAF tone of the overwound Rocksong pickups, the electronics package includes a pair of genuine, vintage, Sprague "bumble-bee" tone capacitors, (shown in pic # 6), for a sonic edge unavailable to most other modern instruments. You can go from smooth-and-slick to balls-to-the-wall at a flick of the three-way selector switch.
Fully hand built one-off
As mentioned above, each SonicF guitar is a fully hand built one-off, making your truly awesome SonicF Z15 the only one in existence. It comes complete with deluxe tweed hard shell case, and is 100% ready to make an immediate impact on your playing, your style and your sound!
*As well as building his SonicF guitars, Sean Folan is also a producer at Seattle's famous Low Recordings, a band member of Children Of The Night, Sh!ny, Dorje, etc, and has also remixed major artists such as Massive Attack, Air, BT, Future Sound Of London, Meat Beat Manifesto, Thievery Corporation and more
