It’s not often that a truly original guitar design comes around. Guitarists are notoriously conservative, and for good reason: The traditional acoustic guitar is a beautiful instrument, a time-honored classic of design. But while the acoustic guitar is great for playing solo in intimate settings, it often can’t compete in the midst of a band or the sounds of people talking in a big club.
That’s where the acoustic-electric guitar comes in—typically just an acoustic guitar with an electric pickup mounted on. It’s a Frankenstein-style merging of disparate parts. It works…but it’s not exactly elegant.
Enter the Pegasus, from Jon Kammerer Guitars: an acoustic-electric guitar that’s specifically designed to be played plugged in.
