Novo Serus TC Guitar, Tobacco Burst
The Novo Serus TC Guitar was developed by renowned luthier Dennis Fano. This version of the Serus TC features a tempered red pine body and a tempered flamed maple Chunky C neck. With dual Lollar Imperial humbuckers, it is a serious player's machine with many tonal options.
About the Lollar Imperial Humbuckers: The Lollar Imperial captures the airy top end, tight lows, balanced midrange, and complex overtones of the best original PAF pickups. In reviews it is consistently given high marks for its balanced frequency response. Unbalanced coils keep the bottom end tight for the amount of fullness the pickups have, overtones build after each note is played. Alnico 2 magnets in the neck & alnico 5 magnets in the bridge are de-gaussed to specific levels, unique to the neck and bridge positions.
About the 5-Way Mega Switching: We got with Dennis and we're excited about the wide range of tone available from this guitar. Using a 5-way megaswitch, we have configured the pickup switching to be as follows:
5 - Neck Humbucker
4 - Outside Coil of Neck Humbucker
3 - Both Humbuckers
2 - Inside Coils of Both Humbuckers
1 - Bridge Humbucker
This version of the Novo Serus TC features a Schroeder Original Stoptail Bridge as opposed to the chopped Tele bridge. Also included are the Schroeder Top-Adjustable Locking Studs. Nice!
