Re: Guthrie Govan Signature Shur

It's a blower switch.

That puts the guitar into the bridge humbucker position bypassing the tone and volume controls for the highest purest output. effectively turbocharging your sound.

they used to be common on Andersons with a switcheroo. I used to use one on an old RG550 years ago now I prefer guitars that are naturally aspirated

That is awesome, I don't really like the speed knobs really. Also I hope the tremolo stays in tune well. The blower switch is amazing too haha

Re: Guthrie Govan Signature Shur

Love the top, but not a fan of that style of bridge. The real question is, will it make me play like Guthrie?

If it does it's well worth the price. Really, it would be well worth ANY price if it did that.

Rock on!
