Mansfield-based Bell Custom Guitars announces a new addition to it's custom line of hand-built guitars — the JazzBlaster — uniquely designed with a maple and acrylic fused body and an LED illumination system.
The JazzBlaster features hand-wound Amalfitano P90 pickups, a string-though-body bridge design, and a one-of-a-kind LED illumination system that lights up the acrylic portion of the guitar. The distinctive lighting makes the JazzBlaster stand out whether programmed to cycle through red, blue and green colored LEDs, or remain constantly lit.
"The prototype for the JazzBlaster evolved over a period of two years and took several transformations before the perfected the design was ready for production," said Mr. Bell. Producing a noticeably increased amount of sustain from the unique fusion of acrylic and wood, this guitar is not only a fine-tuned musical masterpiece it is also a vibrant piece of art.
The JazzBlaster base-model is priced as shown from $2,995 and may be customized to suit personal preferences including electronics, hardware, and paint.
Production of the first 10 JazzBlaster guitars began in February of 2008. For more information please contact Don Bell at email@example.com.
