The Kauer Banshee features indelibly classic looks, comfortable contours and formidable tone. The mahogany body is slim but exceptionally resonant, assertive but stunningly agile. This is an instrument with the muscle to stand out in a mix and the poise to play nice with the rest of the band. 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 one of our favorite pickup combinations of all time! The Lollar Imperial in the bridge is midrange-rich and smooth, right at home with clean tones and dirt alike. The warmth of the mahogany body and resonance of the neck-thru design really shine through on clean tones, yet it also has a nice snarl that comes alive through an overdrive.
The Novel90 in the neck has a gutsy low end, spank in the midrange and a warm-yet-articulate upper register. Think a single coil with a fatter attack and a warmer top end. The middle position blends perfect clarity with the round lower midrange of the bridge pickup. It’s somewhat reminiscent a FilterTron pickups but with a little more individualized contribution from each pickup. There’s shimmer in abundance and you can take this combination places a hum/hum configuration will never go!
How Does It Play?
Like a dream. We don’t set up every guitar this low, but this one is barely a hair over 4/64” at the 12th fret on the low E and right at 3/64” on the high E, without a hint of string buzz. The neck is PLEK’d to perfection. The medium C profile is unabashedly comfortable at first touch. This is also a very lightweight guitar, easy on the shoulder but heavy on natural resonance!
