One switch position drives the EMG neck pickup, one the acoustic transducer pickup and the 3rd (middle position) is for both pickups at the same time (I think) The 3 control knobs are for volume for the EMG pickup, volume for the acoustic pickup and the 3rd knob controls tone (bass to treble) for each.

    I think this guitar may be a lot of fun for those frigid, snowy months when I'm looking for some type of diversion.

    Like I said, I'm still trying to figure it all out but that's where I think I'm at for now.
    Thanks for the info. I'm generally against the idea of modifying a nice guitar, but as much as I enjoy the Peregrine I keep thinking it would be really cool if I could truly use it as a hybrid guitar - electric or acoustic at the touch of a switch. Not too sure about both at once, but it is something to consider. I'd try to do it as "invisible" as possible, too. Even thinking about matching red mahogany veneer over the pickup.

    Really interesting looking guitar Richard. You do find some cool stuff! So what is this exactly - a thin hollow or semi hollow flattop with acoustic bridge and pickup? Does it sound like an electric or acoustic or somewhere in between?

    '94 catalog, pg 3, here (with comments on "tone"):
    https://www.gad.net/Blog/wp-content/...g-Electric.pdf
    "Semi-hollow" normally meant "chambered" in this type of construction, and note it's got both the magnetic and UST pickups.

    Y'know I never made the connection before but by golly you're right that is the same outline as the T-series which are commonly called the "Guild Tele", and even used by Roy Buchanan for a while:



    And because everybody loves a nice 'burst

    Hello

    Do you know how far Peregrine and Songbird are from each other soundwise when plugged in?

    I have two reasons for asking.

    First - I have been developing an ALMOST reversible way to convert my Songbird to Thru-body strings like Peregrine. Only irreversible thing would be those six holes in the back - if not happy. So - do you or anybody else know if there is a significant difference in plugged sound?

    Second - if the answer to first question is "no big difference" - then why not just get a Songbird and mount a humbucker in the soundhole? A floating pickguard could then be organized with few minimal screwholes . . . etc . .
    First good guitar - GUILD Duane Eddy 400 - I was 3rd owner - still regret letting it go 25 years ago - used to have Artist Award and Starfire - no regrets here.
    Present guitars - all bought new - F50R 1975 - F512 1977 - F212CSB 1979 - OM-240CE 2018 - Schecter Startocaster
    Bought secondhand - B30SB fretless - RED Songbird - White Songbird - S-60D - D-125 - Gibson 3/4-size acoustic 1957 - Carmelo Gonzales nylon string - old Levin Lute

    I ask because Tom and I have been toying with the idea of modifying my Peregrine by adding a neck pickup just like this. Not sure how I'd want the switching. One or two output jacks? Obviously (to me, anyway) you wouldn't want to run into the same amp for both modes.
    Please sell me that rare Perigrine instead of cutting up the top.

    Congrats Richard! Michael (krysh), matsickma and at least one more member have a CR01 as well. Seems to be a rare club!
