An incredibly fun and versatile guitar that is sure to energize your love of playing! This FBGC Brothers Choice Arcade Model is stacked with loads of cool and inspiring appointments, including a B5 Bigsby (upgraded with Callaham String Shaft for easy stringing), McNelly Mini Humbuckers, and a knockout satin metallic copper finish with matching headstock and split parallelogram inlays. Back-painted acrylic pickup rings and pickguard add to the bold look, while the clear electronics cavity cover appeals to the geek inside us all!
The Arcade Model is the Frank Brothers take on a classic Solid-Body electric that lets you access a ton of vintage tones in a new retro design.
The McNelly Mini Humbuckers deliver rich, warm tones with a bit more clarity and attack than your standard "full size" humbucker. Picture a humbucker with a tight bass end, sparkling highs, a punchy mid-range and a splash of single coil charm!
Mini Humbuckers are starting to get the attention they deserve - check out the Reverb Article below for the full story - but they've made a significant contribution to recorded music since their introduction and are truly unique and fantastic sounding pickups! Robbie Robertson used a Mini Humbucker equipped guitar on the recording of King Harvest, while Thin Lizzy's Scott Gorham can be heard using Mini Humbuckers on Jailbreak (Live and Dangerous). More recently, John Mayer has been seen recording with a Mini Humbucker equipped Epiphone Riviera. https://reverb.com/ca/news/the-mini-humbucker-more-than-just-a-miniature-humbucker
