The Kauer Banshee Deluxe retains the same neck thru construction that makes the Banshee so unique, but adds a maple top for a distinct sonic flavor. Measuring ¼” thick in the middle and 1/8” on the wings, it imparts a bite and tightness not heard in the standard Banshee and pairs especially well with humbucking pickups. Nonetheless, the body maintains the thin dimensions, comfortable contours and lively response of its namesake. If this isn’t exactly the Banshee you are looking for, feel free to contact us for a custom order to spec one out exactly to your liking!
What Do We Think?
This is our tech’s favorite Banshee yet, and that’s saying a lot! We truly love every one of them. But there is certainly something special about the way the Lollar Mini Humbuckers sit in this one. The pickups are tight and responsive with plenty of natural body resonance and “depth” to back them up. From tone to cosmetics, this guitar just seriously delivers where it counts. And the Tobacco Burst finish over unfigured Eastern Maple is quite a show stopper in its own right.
How Does It Play?
Incredible. Doug PLEKs the necks on his guitars and the results are undeniable. Of course, the entire guitar displays expert craftsmanship that all comes together the moment you pick it up. We don’t usually set guitars up this low, but this beauty plays at 4/64” on the low E at the 12th fret and 3/64” on the high E without buzz. The medium C neck profile is incredibly comfortable as well. Speaking for ourselves, we wouldn’t change a thing!
