Micah Plante Custom Guitar 2009Micah Plante
This is a custom built, handmade electric guitar from one of our own, local luthier Micah Plante. Micah is a Northampton based artisan with a passion for building instruments out of reclaimed and sustainable materials. This custom electric is constructed with a uniquely shaped ash body, birdseye maple neck and an ebony fingerboard. The finish is a very light, thin nitrocellulose lacquer in a striking tangerine sunburst. Other highlights include an Earvana nut, fanned style frets, Gibson 498T bridge pickup, Duncan Antiquity mini humbucker neck pickup and a Stratocaster style middle pickup. Total weight of the guitar comes in at a light 7 lbs. 8 ozs. This guitar has a nice, low action and requires little to no effort to navigate. The smooth and supple feel is second only to the inspiring tone! The neck position mini humbucker is smooth, jazzy and buttery with a bubbly attack, the middle position sounds like the best Strat that you've ever heard, very chimey and bell like. The bridge is powerful and bright without being harsh. The in-between positions will introduce you to a whole world of tones that will have you exploring this guitar's voice and capabilities for hours on end. When you're tired of the same old thing, come and take this custom built Micah Plante for a spin, you'll be inspired.
