Known for doing things to a guitar that the roughest ranch hand wouldn’t do to a farm animal, the moniker “Gristleman” comes from the term “pounding the gristle” which refers to the act of engaging in fierce musical congress.
“For me the dream Multi-Voice scenario is to be able to instantly summon the perfect White-Guard and Black-Guard tones with flawless articulation and no hum. And that’s exactly what Fishman has done for me in my signature set. The voices in my head are now in my guitar – well, 4 of them anyway!”
Each Fishman Fluence pickup has two distinct and useful sounds on-board. These sounds start with the revolutionary Fluence Core, the heart of Fluence tone. From this Fluence Core we then create the classic timbres and tone — colors you expect from great guitar pickups — as well as some you’ve never expected.
Our expert engineers have developed a Kyser® Quick-Change® specifically designed for your electric guitar. With a slightly smaller body and less tension than the original Kyser® Quick-Change®, it contours to the lower action on the neck of your electric guitar. This Kyser® Quick-Change® is built to last. It is reliable and does just what it is designed to do — clearly raise the pitch of the electric guitar so you can play in a different key without retuning or changing fingering. Seasoned professionals and beginning players alike appreciate how the Kyser® Quick-Change® helps them transpose their electric guitar in seconds, with only one hand. The beauty of the Kyser® Quick-Change® is in its simplicity. We pioneered this design and although often imitated, a Kyser® Quick-Change® is never equaled. There is no substitute for a Kyser® Quick-Change®.
