I was intrigued the first time I saw the Barb Wire Dolls perform; drums, guitar and singer, and they filled up the musical spectrum, in a big way.
But I was also inspired. A guitar needed to be created that could cover not only rhythm and lead guitar functions, but fill the bottom end normally
assigned to basses equally as well. Additionally, the instrument needed to be able to sustain musically without limit to fit his playing style. Pyn
also plays in standard tuning, no drops, and straight into his amps, no pedals.
Out of these requirements, the guitar we named the Truth was crafted. I used a groundbreaking combination of our BF-3 big body and a Holey bowl-
cut, partially covered resonant chamber to enhance the bass response and overall musical sustaining properties of the instrument. This feature, combined
with a maximized bridge loading force, and the unparalleled headstock force ratio of our Wave necks, provides the fundamental conditions necessary for
this guitar’s broad and powerful musical range to occur. This is then translated through EMG 85 pickups, an active bass and treble control, and an
additional EMG Afterburner preamp.
We are pleased to introduce our first Artist Model guitar, The Pyn Doll Truth.
