The Baccara - undying hope, eternal optimism.
When we started on the Baccara for Alain, it was to replace his old Epiphone Casino that was stolen from him mid show years ago. Can you imagine, being on stage and watching one of your favorite guitars be stolen from you right off the stage. So after we had done the Sparkler for Alain, we wanted to give him a special guitar to replace what was stolen from him.
So we set out to build him the guitar of his dreams. A Semi Hollow 22 fret master piece.
We started out with the basics of his 1965 Casino that was stolen. It is a thinline Mahogany Body with Arched Maple top, and Maple Tone Block.
With its compound "U" shaped Mahogany Set Neck with Ebony fretboard. The 22 Fret 625mm Scale is a dream to play.
The Pickups are a custom wax potted set of Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers, a SH-55n for the neck and a SH-55b for the bridge with single volume and tone controls.
Of course the pick up selector is a simple toggle on the upper bout to switch from Neck, Bridge and both pick ups.
