Sonnet 16 Olive Whisper Gallery

Sonnet 16

The resonance and elaborate midrange of the Sonnet body design makes it ideal to show acoustical presence in any situation. The Sonnet 16 is the version with a traditional flair, the newly designed Metro-Pole MPRS-5 single coils were inspired by the mid-sixties pickups, with a present midrange yet tight bottom and bell-like treble.

The push-push switch located on the tone control lets you combine both the bridge and the neck pickups or all 3 single coils for additional tones. The "Steel-Tone" custom bridge with steel saddles and the oiled bone nut guarantee well balanced tone and tuning stability.
The combination of quality tonewoods, premium materials, and enhanced ergonomics ensures an optimal playing and musical experience.
