“… it's astounding how many tones are at your fingertips— and, on that subject, it’s really awesome to be able to mess with amp controls on the fly.

I switched it on. Sure enough a full, loud sound came out of the speakers. Nice! I turned the amp gain up a bit and got some musical overdrive. Nudging the amp volume up just a touch created singing, infinite sustain.

… at your fingertips are the DELAY and CHORUS effects, and all of their parameters. First off, both effects sound really good– nice and warm. The DELAY is particularly expansive, with the repeats coming out of the speaker

   in the upper bout. I dialed in some very produced tones that I could tweak in           real-time. It really works.

      When the amp is on, Model One is capable of way more sympathetic vibrations

      than ordinary guitars. And because this guitar came with the optional Easy                Rider V-Twin Tremolo, I could really do a lot with the feedback. Fun!

    The HI and LO EQ knobs are extremely powerful, and just those two controls alone give you an amazing range of sounds, from warm jazzy neck-pickup tones to bridge-humbucker sizzle.”
