The Pignose PGG259 Deluxe has long been one of our favourite guitars so we were delighted to receive the first batch of the new deluxe version finished in white. The finish is complemented with gold coloured hardware, special large inlaid block mother of pearl neck position markers and a white and black stripe binding running right around the body, neck and headstock, all elements that contribute to the sophisticated look and feel to this already awesome guitar.
The Deluxe version PGG259 features a humbucking pickup, built-in amp, and metal Pignose volume control (push-pull on/off switch) and a gutsy one watt amplifier, powered by a 9-volt battery. The Pignose PGG259 Deluxe has a 24¼ inch scale, a 22-fret fingerboard with bolt-on maple neck, fixed bridge with fully adjustable saddles and both standard ¼ inch and 3.5mm output jacks which allow the guitar to drive headphones as well as a regular amp.
The Pignose people say, "this guitar puts all the funk, grit, and power of a Pignose amplifier right inside a very playable, kickin' little guitar. Simply pull on the famous Pignose knob, crank it up, and the famous Pignose sound comes straight out of the guitar and into your face!" Well, we would have toned it down just a bit but we agree with the sentiments completely.
Truly a great guitar in any application...on stage, back stage, recording sessions, on the road, in your hotel room, halls of residence, office, taxi cab, truck or simply on your lunch break, or in-between lectures. So wherever and whenever the urge to play hits you your guitar can be there!
And with nothing to plug in (unless you just want to) just pick it up, turn it on and grin.
