Gordon Smith GS1 - Tobacco Sunburst

« back
Hand-built in the UK since 1974, Gordon Smith build exceptional, British guitars. The Auden team have taken over production and continue to make quality instruments with the same level of skill and dedication as it's original founders. Sporting a beautiful satin tobacco sunburst finish and a double cutaway, the GS1 has the style and vibe of a vintage guitar from the 60's; but don't be fooled. The GS1 is very minimal in it's design, a single humbucker sits at the bridge and is controlled by a master tone and a master volume pot. But there's still more, the volume pot can be pulled to split the humbucker, turning it into a single coil pickup. This gives the guitar a completely different tone and is an ideal feature to have if you play a variety of music, you can access Gibson and Fender-like tones in one guitar at the flick of a switch.

Tonally the GS1 is sublime, the humbucker puts out a warm, thick rocky tone which is great for getting that little extra drive from your guitar for solos (distorted is where the humbucker shines). The single-coils tone also holds up really well, it is fairly spanky, but retains enough of that warmth as to not be too 'thin' sounding and is better suited to clean playing. The body's satin finish makes for a beautiful guitar that gives the impression it was simply lifted from the wood it formed naturally in. No pickup selector switches, or any fancy bridges clutter the body. This is truely a players guitar that is built on proficiency and great natural tone.
