Electronics used

Ingerstyle Guitars utilize 500k CTS pots combined with orange capacitors and Switchcraft toggle switch to control the Golden Age Alnico Humbuckers.  This combination guarantees a hot signal coming from the guitar that has an amazing sound and tone in both neck and bridge positions.

Hardware

Ingerstyle guitars use either gold Grover tuners or Schaller type gold with perloid tuners. The gold Gotoh bridge provides individual saddles for adjusting string height and intonation.  The Golden Age humbuckers provide a smooth hot signal which can be compared to some of the great guitars from the 50's and 60's.
