tempest modern 2019
The tempest modern 2019 is a blend of traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technologies. Combining flowing curves and hard edges, the tempest modern feels smooth and plays even smoother. The variety of tonal options makes this a versatile instrument that will give you the sound you want from a single guitar for the modern guitar player.
The tempest modern is designed and crafted by our luthier and is part of the limited private stock.
A set of Bare Knuckle hand wound True Grit humbucker pickups features Alnico V magnets to produce a fat, rich clean tone and punchy driven tone. The True Grit humbuckers make this guitar super versatile and suitable for hot blues, hard rock, grunge, punk and old school metal, right through to progressive rock tones.
Cutting edge switching technology gives you six district sound options for the ultimate in versatility. The traditional oil paper capacitors and CTS pots ensure a precision audio taper which gives you smooth, accurate response. Crank your guitar up to 10 and the volume swells all the way—no abrupt flattening to choke your playing style.
The body and neck are made from hand picked ash and maple hardwoods. They are carefully selected for their tone and resonance, which allows for a surprising amount of sustain.
It’s all about the finish
At Munson Guitars we always prefer to use finishes that leave the raw grain visible, so you can see the beauty of the wood. The ash body is finished in a deep navy natural stain over black grain, before adding several coats of traditional nitrocellulose that will allow the finish to age gracefully. The maple neck, which includes a dual action truss rod and contrasting dark walnut skunk strip, is protected and enhanced by a proprietary blend of finishing oil which delivers a hard wearing, yet soft satin feel for a super fast action.
Go on, you know you want one…
Built to inspire, the tempest modern is a versatile instrument that will quickly become your go-to guitar.
