Samick Greg Bennett Blackbird Series SMJ-17CE Acoustic Electric Guitar
New ideas in the guitar business are few and far between. As players, we really like our tradition; very little has changed in the last fifty years. Occasionally, however, a guitar comes along with the potential to become a true classic.
The idea of a solid body acoustic is a contradiction in terms that produces a guitar with amazing performance capabilities. The design concept came about because of the problem players experience in live performance situations. The wonderful resonant capabilities of a good acoustic guitar are the exact same characteristics that cause feedback. By making the body of the guitar solid, the possibility of feedback is greatly reduced. The onboard L.R. Baggs electronics enable the player to sculpt a unique sound that in a strange way tends to sound more acoustic than the real thing.
