The Big Bang Model E Single Cut is a small bench American made instrument with a timeless design, classic tone and professional playability. These are made in a small shop in Bristol VA, nicknamed “The Big Bang of Country Music”. This will be a private build, so contact us about the specifics of making something you’ll truly enjoy. Check us out on Facebook (Big Bang Bristol) to see the build on this guitar and all the other projects we’re working on. We do custom CNC work, so if you have an idea, send us a message.
I wanted to create a solid body bolt-on neck guitar that would be accessible to working musicians. The familiar 25.5″ scale Maple neck topped by a Rosewood fingerboard is attached to a solid 1 3/4″ Western red Alder body with a classic cutaway.
The electronics feature a single P-90 style pickup in the bridge position, controlled by quality CTS Master Volume and Master Tone pots with an Orange Drop Tone Capacitor hand wired with vintage style cloth wire.
Gotoh Tune-O-Matic style bridge and Short Trapeze Tailpiece give this guitar traditional styling and a wonderful warm tone.
The guitar is painted in Dakota Red and finished with a Satin Gloss. Other colors available, message us for details.
