What Do We Think?

We'd like to give a warm welcome to Novo! We're really excited to be a new dealer for them in 2024, and this first batch of guitars did not disappoint. This Serus T in Charcoal Frost features both a tempered Pine body and tempered Maple neck. The resonance of this guitar is tight and punchy in the lower register as well as lively and crisp on the high end.

The Lindy Fralin pickup set in this guitar is very well balanced, and uses a high output tele bridge pickup alongside a custom made-for-Novo P-45 in the neck. The bridge sounds are very articulate and snappy, having a strong upper midrange that handles overdrive really nicely. This position has a refined yet full low-end attack that gives some percussiveness to quick chicken pickin’ lines or twangy riffs.

Moving to the P-45 neck pickup, you'll be pleasantly surprised with how clear and well-EQ’d this position is. There is no overbearing low end, and it is equally matched in output to the bridge pickup. It's amazing how well it strikes the balance between articulation and warmth. It handles gain very well, and has a natural compression and sustain that is really fun to experience.

The 4-position selector switch gives you a nice addition to the standard three position switch. Position 2 has a subtle "cluck" with both pickups in parallel and sounds fantastic for funky, clean rhythm parts. Position 4 puts both pickups in series for a natural solo boost or to beef up a clean fingerpicked line that needs to take up more space in the mix.

 

How Does It Play?

Marrying the old with the new, this guitar has a classic medium C neck topped with a 9.5-14” compound radius fretboard. The frets are Jescar Jumbo stainless steel, the bridge saddles are vintage-style brass. And let us tell you, it all comes together beautifully! The string action hovers around 4/64” at the 12th fret without any buzz.
