Dear friends, dear guitar fans! We are already very excited and we're looking forward to the Frankfurt Musikmesse, which will be held from March 21st until March 24th 2012. Discover Lakewood Guitars in hall 3.1 at booth number F75.
From 9 in the morning until 6 in the afternoon Martin Seeliger, Vico Bachmann and Markus Hoppe will cheerfully wait for you and be in the right mood for a chat. Any question will be faced openly and answered patiently. Of course, it will also be a perfect opportunity to pick up a few guitars, to look at them and to play on them.
Like every year we would like to tell you in advance what's waiting for you at the show
New L.R. Baggs pickup system in all Lakewood cutaway / pickup models
Beginning with 1st of May we are going to fit all Lakewood cutaway / pickup models with a new pickup system: The L.R. Baggs Anthem System. L.R. Baggs pickups are highly respected throughout Europe and the world. They stand for high-quality systems with no compromise. The Anthem System is high profile dual system that works with two pickups. Initially, there is an under saddle transducer in the bridge, which is in addition complemented by a microphone sitting inside the guitar. That microphone is fixedly mounted to the top in a small housing, which makes it noticeably feedback-resistant. The controls are, similar to the Lakewood Sonic System, accessible through the sound hole. There are controls for adjusting basically the master volume and also the ratio of the microphone. Sound controls or equalizers is something you won’t find on the pre-amp, because the system reproduces a guitar’s natural sound incredibly well! Less is more. And minimalism at the right spot is one of our percepts just as well.
Additional information and technical details are available at www.lrbaggs.com and soon here on our web site.
Customshop exhibition during Musikmesse in Frankfurt
The Lakewood Customshop has become a stable establishment within our production and in many music stores long ago. The “Lakewood Guitar-Designer”, a 3D configuration tool on our web site, is a huge help while developing own ideas and eventually “building” the dream guitar on the screen and made the process of ordering a unique custom instrument somewhat easier for many customers. But beside our eyes, that are stimulated by a nice virtual 3D guitar, we have got more senses waiting for being served. To take something in your hand and smell the wood, to feel the surface, the listen to a sound or to feel the cool strings on a well-shaped neck – these are sensory experiences that cannot be replaced by anything!
We would like to give our visitors the opportunity to admire, to touch and to smell a few exhibition samples and details of the Lakewood Customshop. Of course, we have also got complete custom guitars waiting for you at the exhibition booth.
Sungha Jung Signature Model
There is a new model coming up in the Lakewood range, which we would like to introduce during the Frankfurt Musikmesse 2012 – the Sungha Jung Signature Guitar. Sungha Jung is from South Korea and most people know him through YouTube, where he achieved more than 425 million clicks within the last 6 years. The first video clips show him as a 10 year old who has been developing rapidly, though. For many people he seems a virtual person due to his Internet presence and virtual appearance, but he’s real indeed. In Asia he has nowadays almost got celebrity status while he’s recognized more and more in the rest of the world, where he grows to an important part of the acoustic music scene, as well.
For almost 4 years he’s been playing and loving Lakewood guitars now. We feel linked to him very closely and the connection to Ulli Bögershausen yielded extraordinary results. The two first albums i.e. were recorded in Germany together with Ulli. Now we would like to credit this relationship and therefore we created a Sungha Jung Signature guitar. It will enrich the model range of Lakewood Guitars and honor a very talented young musician.
From the outside you will first recognize this guitar by the signature inlay in the fingerboard. It has this stylized guitar drawing Sungha is doing often. Other than that the guitar is very pragmatic and sticks to basic features musicians often prefer in order to have a good “working horse”. Rosewood sides and back hold a AAA European spruce top. Body, neck and headstock are decorated with flamed maple bindings that are giving a light look to the instrument. An open-pored satin gloss finish and an L.R. Baggs Anthem System for premium amplified sound follow this very high-level practicability. Wouldn’t this guitar be perfect for your next YouTube video?
