Obbligato, Inc. releases Turnstyle, the world's first 100% analog guitar modeling system that installs directly into any Fender® Stratocaster® Guitar and most similar guitars. Obbligato's patent pending design uses three magnetic coil pickups, top-grade components and a convenient rotary switch to enable consumers to seamlessly switch between a who's-who list of single-coil & humbucker tones within a single guitar. Turnstyle offers a significantly lower-cost alternative to most digital processor guitars.
Turnstyle ships fully assembled with pickguard, ModernVE or VintageVE pickups, volume control, tone control, Turnstyle switch, new pickguard screws and a genuine Switchcraft output jack. Turnstyle is available in White, Black, White Pearl, Black Pearl and Tortoise Shell.
"Turnstyle was designed to be completely stealth in appearance and to operate in a performance setting, making it instantly second nature to switch between sounds during the middle of a song without missing a note or having to look at the controls. Over a decade of development went into turning a cluster of toggle switches into a single rotary switch and standard 5-way selector without resorting to relays, silicon or batteries" — Turnstyle Design Team
Turnstyle replaces the consumer's pickguard assembly instead of their guitar, completely analog, requires no batteries, and provides instant access to 15 top guitar tones.
