Manufacturer's Description

The Fishman Fluence Modern soapbar humbuckers – specially designed for the needs of the extra low-B and low-F# strings – faithfully deliver the acoustic character of this instrument with power, punch and tonal flexibility to your amplification systems and provide the versatility to suit virtually any musical genre and playing style.

What makes it special?

Besides all of the base features of the Metal model, the Sarah Longfield Edition features Sarah’s unique and visually striking Black Doppler finish. Creatively and spontaneously conceived by Sarah, the finishing process requires painstakingly detailed workmanship from the application of the artwork decal to the final gloss finish and buffing. The result is an instrument that is as artistically stunning as it is musically versatile.

What does it do?

The wood combination of the Metal model was thoughtfully selected for the best possible high-gain distortion sounds as well as versatility. Featuring chambered American Basswood body with a quarter-inch Maple top, the body delivers a full and rich midrange with a defined and punchy low-end. The Roasted Maple neck adds tightness and articulation while the Ebony fretboard contributes sparkle as well as an exceptionally smooth playing surface. The Fishman Fluence Modern pickups deliver these acoustic characteristics with authority and musicality while offering a wide variety of humbucker and single-coil tones for the utmost in versatility.

Who is it for?

The Metal Sarah Longfield Edition is for players who seek an instrument that has a unique visual aesthetic as well as the best in modern guitar design, ergonomics, playability and sound. Underneath the stunning look is an instrument that resonates loudly and which responds to your most aggressive pick attack through the most delicate touch like no other. In short, this guitar is for the thoroughly modern guitarist willing to push the sonic limits of what the guitar can produce while having the flexibility to access great classic sounds.
