EmileGuitars HB-Goldentime

I have the pleasure of introducing you to the first EmileGuitar designed by the artist Hans Bode (yes, we are indeed related).   Hans has used his architectural and artist skills to design this unique looking guitar.  Using a special technique with chinese gold paper to recreate an appearance of old (antique?) gold, as used in a time when Van Halen were still in diapers.

In those good old days, they were not fortunate enough to own the EMG DG20 special David Gilmour tribute set from EMP Pro Series, man this rocks!  The sound variation is so versatile it includes strat to thin tele and the fat humbucker.  
In addition to it's sleek look and fantastic sound, it runs on 1 battery for an entire year (so don't forget to unplug the cable when you are finished creating that masterpiece!).

  • EMG DG20 David Gilmour set David has used this same EMG System for close to 15 years on his main red Strat. The DG20 comes with ivory SA single coil pickups, wired with an EXG Guitar Expander, an SPC Presence Control, and master volume all on a deluxe White Pearl pickguard with white knobs. The SA single coil pickups feature Alnico magnets which give a full round tone with an accentuated mid range. The EMG-EXG Guitar Expander circuit increases the bass and treble while reducing the mids, perfect for chord definition at higher volumes. The SPC makes the SA's sing by boosting the mids and turning your single coils into full blown humbuckings. Now you can have the same pickups and tone accessories as David, but keep practicing if you want to get to the "Dark Side of the Moon".
