The satin mahogany neck has an ebony fingerboard with a flat profile to help players enjoy this instrument even more. The truss rod of the steel-string version allows adjustment in both directions to obtain a perfect shape on the neck in all positions. A glass fiber rod which was developed in-house improves the resistance on the cedar neck of the classical version. The nut is made of bone.
The solid ebony bridge guarantees a perfectly flat surface – an important criterion for the even response of the electrostatic Bluestick under-saddle pickup. Like the nut, the saddle is also carved in bone and is precisely fitted to give a string angle of 12°. This facilitates transmitting the string vibrations to the Bluestick with greatest efficiency and offers better compensation in tuning when string action is raised or lowered.
The guitar is bordered by an elegant rosewood binding, contrasted by a fine binding line in maple.
The headstock is reinforced by a 3 mm thick piece of ebony for better tone and to create the elegant optical effect of an elongated fingerboard. The lightweight slotted headstock adds to the overall balance of the neck and reveals the original Schertler machine-heads. These are of the highest quality, timeless elegance and feature lightweight ebony knobs.
Schertler stands for the top end of acoustic instrument amplification and so this outstanding guitar is equipped with the most accurately reproducing transducers and electronics available. With all parts made in Switzerland, the DUAL-onboard system offers the combination of an electrostatic under-saddle pickup (Bluestick) and an electrodynamic contact mike (D-DYN) mounted to the top, providing a comprehensive range of sound from great natural acoustic to a sound that cuts through even on a loud rock stage.
Bass, Middle, Treble, Blend-mix (Bluestick left - D-Dyn right), Volume, Battery check with a blue led power indicator. Adjustable on the circuit board are also the Gain and Phase reverse for the D-DYN. The circuitry is built for highest accuracy in discrete Class-A technology with 27 transistors (!), an effort never before seen in guitar electronics.
The battery socket is situated on the bottom of the guitar just below of the Jack (phone) plug input.
Use a standard 9V battery to supply the guitar. it will last more than 200h playing time.
