The Nu Rabbit

Curtis Novak Widerange style humbuckers have always been a favorite with the folks who play my guitars. I hadn’t built a traditional semi-hollow body since I did the Alpha (my daily player), and I’ve always thought that a pair of those pickups would be a great combination with that body type. The Nu guitar is the result of those musings. The Flame koa top is absolutely gorgeous. The fifties style round back neck gives you the feel you are looking for with this genre of instrument. The sound, as you’d expect with this combination, is nothing short of fantastic.
