Is a variation of the AcustiVibe
The shape of the body is exactly like the Acoustivibe. but the body has a center-block. So it is a semi-acoustic guitar with a center-block and two chambered sections each side.
The tone is that classic semi-hollowbody sound with a remarkable semi-acoustic quality, but also with great sustain and electric punch.
When I was thinking about the hardware and pickups I was really thinking of something a bit out of the ordinary for Manne. So I chose specific semi-acoustic pickups with an Alnico V core and a vintage relaxed tone, as well as a retro style compact vibrato that fits perfectly the project.
I like to make it with a classic Manne all natural finish that is not the usual look of these guitars. And this gave the project a very nice and perfect Manne look and feel which really stands out from the classic icons of this genre. So now we have a perfect Manne rockabilly guitar but very well suited also for alternative-indie rock, with acid resonance.
