Speed of Sound Roasted Ash Natural Item Description

This is the Colletti Guitars Speed of Sound serial 1023 - a straight-ahead Rock machine with a natural Tru-Oil finish over a roasted ash body, and we love the look of the double white bobbin OX4 humbuckers!

The Colletti Guitars Speed of Sound is an American-made guitar created by Music Zoo founder Tommy Colletti. The Speed of Sound is a bolt-on construction instrument featuring the Patent-Pending "Reso-Link" - a brass plate which links the body and neck to aid in resonance, sustain and articulation. The 'Reso-Link' is tuned specifically to sonically connect the neck and body to aid in the sympathetic resonance of each note. There's a defined note separation and sparkle added to the tones of the guitar that make it reminiscent of the touch-sensitive response of vintage guitars that have had decades to acclimate as a musical instrument and vibrate as one whole piece.

The tonewoods of the guitars (fretboards to necks and tops to bodies) are joined together using hot hide glue. The use of hide glue is a process adapted from vintage guitar construction, violin makers, and stringed instruments from decades and centuries past. Hot hide glue adds sustain and brilliance and brings out the natural tonal properties of the wood.

The pickups are designed in collaboration with Mark Stow of OX4. The pickups are a blend of some of Tommy and Mark’s favorite original PAF pickups from the late 1950s. This pickup set has a reverse magnet neck pickup to replicate the Peter Green & Gary Moore-owned Burst pickup that has become popular over the last few years. It delivers out-of-phase single coil sounds as well as blistering humbucking tones. The bridge pickup not only takes the best attributes from those early PAFs pickups, but combined with a slightly degaussed Alnico 5 magnet and 42 enamel wire, delivers a sound unmatched in current handmade pickups today. The Speed of Sound features high-quality brass hardware and a tremolo design originating in the late '70s. Vintage-accurate cloth-covered 22 gauge wire with authentic paper-in-oil capacitors are used to wire up the instrument.

If you're looking for a high-performance American-made electric guitar, you won't be disappointed by the tone and feel of a Colletti Speed of Sound!

Includes: Hardshell Case, Certificate of Authenticity, Tremolo Arm
