Product Description

Michael Sankey is an experienced, but still young and most of all very original and creative luthier from Canada who makes extraordinary guitars. First introcduced to me at the Jamie Gale Boutique Guitar Roadshow this guy is a breath of fresh air. All of his guitars are originals and seem to move away from the often boring beaten ‘strat and tele’ track… like this nature inspired ‘Truffle’guitar from Mikes ‘Live edge’ series, that will look odd to you at first, but really ONLY until you pick it up. It seems to fit the players body snug and just perfectly. really ergonomically designed and really a joy to play. I could not put it down after I first picked it up!

Hidden in the forest, under the rough and fissured surface, lie delectable secrets. The second of Michael’s  ‘Live Edge’ series, Truffle is a guitar carved entirely from a single maple burl. The slim and compact body shape is surprisingly light, smooth, and perfectly follows the contours of the players’ body. The neck is a well-aged, straight and perfectly quartercut slab of Jatoba. As the strongest commercially available timber in the the world, there was no need for a tone-robbing truss rod.

Two Lace Alumitone pickups are each provided with independent volume controls- in this way the player can choose no only the overall output level, but also dial in any tone between the flute-clear neck pickup and the tough twang of the bridge humbucker. Frets are superjumbo stainless steel, and the individual bridge/tuner and locking headpiece units are by T4M.

This guitar is now offered at a spoecial introductory price!
