Howie Escape Series 2016 (Willow)

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


This is a brand new 2016 Howie Escape Series guitar that we named Willow.  Just like all of our guitars this guitar is completely hand built here in Longmont Colorado USA. The case and strap are included in the sale.  

All of my Escape Series guitars have a very unique sound because of the nautilus shell body chambers and the “HOT” Parsons Street Humbucker pickup on the bridge. This pickup is wound extra to 9.5k OHMS to give a wonderful bite while the bridge pickup is a normal wind Parsons Humbucker giving a buttery blues sound. Please check out the video to hear the guitar and learn more about how it was built.  

This particular escape is unique in that it has 2 piezo mic pickups at the sound focal point of each shell, giving you another tone layer that can be added to the humbuckers. In the video we show a veritone push pull knob, but since the video was made the wiring was changed to standard two volume and two tone where the tone is on a stacked concentric pot.
