Night Owl Hollowbody
The Night Owl Hollowbody is the merger of time-honoured hand-building techniques and the latest in modern technology. Each Night Owl is precision-built via CNC, using a laser-scanned hand-carved master body template, to the finest tolerances possible and then finished by hand.
As soon as you pick up a Night Owl you’ll notice it’s weight at less than 3 kilograms. The moment you play it you’ll notice its balanced acoustic tone – before you plug it in. Once you get going, the Night Owl’s ease of transition between pure clean tones and robust gain will become obvious. In fact this guitar has a bit of surprise under the hood – it’s ability to deliver huge, fat sounding high gain sounds is refreshing. But singing sustain and rich clean tones are a tweak away. After a few sessions you may well wonder how you ever did without it.
Bluehawk Thinline Archtop
Balanced between electric guitar and acoustic archtop.
The latest model from Adelaide’s Lauda Guitars workshop, the Bluehawk Thinline Archtop is the perfect guitar to deliver the rich warmth of a larger hollowbody and the airy acoustic qualities of a good archtop. It’s a detailed and dynamic instrument that delivers reliable performance at higher volumes.
