The Picker Acoustic Electric Guitar P600E-PAR
Introducing the New 2021 Picker Acoustic Electric Pacific Series P600E-PAR
Riversong loves parlour guitars, they love the history of guitars, most importantly they love the innovation that continually makes guitars better and better. When researching for their "Vienna G2" Canadian custom guitar, they fell in love with the original guitars from Stauffer and Martin.
To Riversong's surprise, these guitars had an adjustable neck angle. With a nod to the original guitars and a modern twist, they designed this guitar. It features Riversong's patented adjustable "Neck-Thru" neck system which offers a fast and precise adjustment for action and intonation, dual carbon fibre rods and the revolutionary Fishman Flex Pick up system. The Shorter scale length and a modern parlour body shape make this a pleasure to play. These innovations make this guitar sound as good as it looks.
Neck-thru Construction - The Patented Riversong Neck System
Riversong's patented Neck-thru technology offers many benefits including strength, intonation, less bracing, easier playing due to the ability to make precise adjustments, variable top loading, an even balanced sustain tone, and volume up and down the neck (yes even on the body), eliminating the need of an expensive neck reset, slinky easy string tension, reduced heel, and the integrated strap pins are part of the structure of the guitar.
Riversong's unique patented Neck-thru design also has a truss rod that runs the full length of the neck. Most traditional guitars have a truss rod that ends at the 14th fret and continuing with an elongated screw head. Riversong necks have a full-length truss rod that adjusts the entire length closer to how an electric guitar is constructed.
The patented neck system has a small amount of flex (like a Strat) and this allows regular gauge strings to feel a lot less stiff further enforcing the electric-like feel.
Riversong's Active Body System
Riversong’s innovation is the active body system. It works by moving the neck all the way through the body allowing two things happen:
- The structure shifts from neck joint to the end block
- The mass of the neck is now equal in and out of the guitar and it is free to vibrate like a tuning fork helping to ring up and down the neck and throughout the body. With the structure coming from the back of the guitar, the body and the neck has a little bit of flex (like a Strat vs a Les Paul) this flex gives the body the ability to freely vibrate and give the strings a really slinky feel (low tension)
