Description

Brent McElroy’s 2018 Generation 2.1 Standard Model is a powerhorse (that’s the intersection of powerhouse and workhorse) dressed to the nines with Adirondack Spruce on top, Claro Walnut back and sides, and a gorgeous Amboyna Burl rosette. The voice here is characterized by a dry, woody response that fires right off the top with a quick decay that makes for added clarity on those fast passages. A pinless Ebony bridge with bone saddle helps more efficiently activate the Adi top, and makes for effortless string changes to boot. The neck is finished in satin for an old-pair-of-jeans kind of feel in hand with a slim profile for easy fretability.
