Info - California TSBS (Torsten Scholz / Beatsteaks)

Die gute ganz alte Schule, komplett passiv, string through, mit Seymour Duncan Pickups und Ahorngriffbrett genau an die Soundwünsche des Herrn Scholz angepasst. Und weil der Mann nicht nur gute Ohren, sondern auch sonst tonnenweise Stil hat, haben wir das Instrument optisch mit tollem Aging, spitzen Blockinlays und einer passend zur Korpusfarbe lackierten Kopfplatte ordentlich aufgehübscht. Postkastengelb, passend zu den Farben seiner Sneaker!

Good old very old school! Completely passive, string through, with Seymour Duncan pickups and maple fretboard, exactly fitted to Torstens sound. And this guy’s not only got fantastic ears but also tons of style. So we pimped the instrument optically, too, with special aging, beautiful blockinlays and a matched head. All in letterbox yellow, fitting the colour of his sneakers...
