The Daylighter JR's!!!
Well, a LONG over due happy new years to everyone! I hope 2011 is as good and better than 2010 was for all of us!
I am absolutely stoked about our new JR models. These started as a pet conversation with Adam Grimm of Satellite Amps and I at the LA Amp Show. In all fairness a JR model has been something we had been considering for a while now but I just wanted it to be uniquely Kauer before we did it.
Then after a few conversations the last few pieces of the puzzle clicked into place and one day we just started it. The first 10 were built with in about 3 months of starting with some minor hiccups along the way. How did they turn out? Beyond EVERY expectation! Like always the bodies and necks are Spanish Cedar. This is just a miracle wood in our eyes, its light, extremely toneful, warm but not muddy or dark. Matched up with our custom wound Wolfetone pickups we've built a guitar that can go from a gentle cry to a full on scream by simply riding the volume. Coupled with a wide range of tones from our carefully selected cap style and values along with a secondary tone switch activated by pulling the tone knob... this is one of the most flexible JR style guitars we've ever laid hands on.
Yes, we're biased... but they are THAT good. We've been having our good friend and customer Scott Beckner photograph the new JR's for us every couple weeks so keep an eye on this posting as we update with more pictures! We'll also see a video demo here soon from Lance at our dealer www.destroyallguitars.com . Really looking forward to that!
