A short definition of a Slaman solid body; archtop guitar tone and feel with a solid body guitar.
Designed for those who love old school jazz and blues sounds but want to have it in a smaller package than a hollow body archtop guitar. Made with (for a solid body guitar) non-traditional lightweight woods like spruce, South American cedar, redwood. And that one unmistakingly discriminating factor........ a Charlie Christian pickup with the big magnets in the neck position.
On top of that, a wooden bridge and a handmade trapeze 250 (pre-war) style tailpiece.
The Jazz Pauletta is a true solid body guitar with a central cavity for the Charlie Christian pickup. The magnets of the CC pickup are visible through the back plate.
The CC pickup has unique adjustable pole pieces; authentic tone combined with modern adjustability of output for each string.
To complement the serie, the Pauletta model has an added Seymour Duncan Custom P90 in the bridge position to go into jazz/blues territory. More traditional wood choice like a maple carved top. Metal bridge for optimum adjustability and tone.
