This creature is called “T.Family BJF Silver Bee”.

It’s the latest result of co-operation by Vuorensaku Guitars and Björn Juhl from BJF. Inside the guitar there is an overdrive circuit made by Björn called “Silver Bee OD”. The basic idea is to capture the tones from Fender Silverface and Silvertone amps with shimmering treble, punchy Lo-mids and  characteristic distortion. The P90 pickup is made by Vuorensaku Guitars to work as a perfect match for the circuit.

Controls are Volume-Distortion-Lo Mid-Treble and ON/OFF switch. There’s also normal guitar controls Volume & Tone whitch are the master controls even circuit is ON.

The rest is up to player. It’s possible to make very seethrough and “hearthough” sounds with this precisely designed EQ and dynamic distortion contolled by your fingers and picking force.

The guitar is passive but the circuit runs with 9v battery which lays under master-control plate.

These guitars are made-by-order.
