James Tyler Studio Elite HD
This Malibu Beach Shmear Studio Elite has the sort of sweet, sun-kissed sound that evokes images of white sand, hot sun, and wide-open California skies! The bridge pickup has articulate lows, broad mids, and a stinging high-end; in other words, you could probably catch this bridge pickup is a muscle shirt flexing lifting weights on the boardwalk by the beach if it were a person! The middle pickup has a vocal upper-midrange a bright, crisp high-end, and I was able to cop some delightful funk/dance tones with it along with some great blues and rock sounds. The neck pickup made me want to play Little Wing, because it's a dead ringer for that tone: bell-like resonance in the highs with upper-mid quack and pillowy, warm lows. All in all, this Studio Elite HD has a lot of tones on tap, so anyone seeking a versatile guitar with a stunning finish will love this serial!
