The guitars include The Performer, it's a chambered Alder body FMT, highly figured Maple top. The Soloist, is a 13” semi-hollowbody that have a Mahogany body and a Spruce top. The Artist is a 15” semi-hollowbody also with a Mahogany body and Spruce top.
Everyone of them have multi-piece Maple necks and double cutaway body shapes. They all got the heel starting at the 17th fret so there is no problem with high fret access on these Sunset guitars. The Sunset guitars are all built in the USA. And the guitars have the tops and bodies hand-carved from high end grade woods.
With the guitars they also include new proprietary electronics. These new pickup systems are dubbed “Multi-Voice Magnetics” and “Coil Notch Electronics.” This is what Sunset Guitars founder Leon White explains about them. “We’ve found a way to control the resonant peak and frequency response from inside each pickup, using passive controls. Early testers all confirmed that the guitars have a wide variety of sounds based upon these technologies. A bridge pickup for example, might have a thick bluesy kind of sound, a cleaner crisp rhythm sound, and a mild ‘quack’ sound, all in the same guitar.”
White goes on to explain: "The pickups and electronics for each guitar are all tuned for each model to exploit the acoustic profile of that specific model. The guitars also feature very long tenon necks. Our neck tenon is as wide as the neck at the heel and extends all the way into the bridge pickup cavity. This helps exploit the transfer of sound from the neck to the body and produces a more even volume from string-to-string,”
The price for the Soloist that you see in the picture are $3200 for the standard. And $4200 for the Deluxe that comes with 2 “Slightly Hot” Pickups with Multi-Voice Magnetics. And a ebony fretboard with dot inlays. The master volume and master treble control, with custom 5 position blend control for the ‘middle’ toggle position. And one coil notch control for each pickup.
