Here’s a quick look at Aslin Dane’s incredibly versatile new release, the Bohemian, which I was lucky enough to get in for review just a few days ago. As you may have noticed, it bares a very strong resemblance to Brian May’s legendary Red Special––but that’s a rather long story, so we’ll save it for the actual review.
With a cherry finished mahogany body this guitar is a looker, and though I’ll have a full review next week (including mp3 samples,) suffice it to say that the Bohemian is one fun guitar to play, owing mostly to a seriously fat fretboard (easy on the fingers!,) and an absolutely insane rack of pickup sliders (3 on/off, 3 coil-taps) which produce a whopping 22 different pickup/tone combinations.
Other nice features include a Fulcrum 2-point tremolo unit, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, and Hagstrom tuning machines.
The first Bohemians are expected to be available for purchase beginning in December, with an out-the-door price of between $349.00 – $399.00.
