Jon Kammerer is happy to reveal the latest versions of acoustic guitar and bass, the feedback resistant Pegasus series. The main feature of this body style is the elongated sound hole that isolates the top plate of the instrument. This allows for it to resonate more, as it is not bound to the edges of the guitar, accomplishing two things: reduced feedback, and a more resonant top plate that transfers sound directly to the under-saddle pickup system.
The key to this breakthrough was literally reinventing the acoustic guitar. Traditional acoustics work like a bellows, pumping air, but inducing a feedback loop when plugged in. The Pegasus series frees the top from the rest of the body allowing the strings to freely vibrate the top plate, but stopping the bellows action that causes the feedback loop, especially in lower frequencies.
Other features of this guitar include:
* 24 fret, compound radius fret board that is fully accessible to the 24th fret.
* Double cutaway body
* L. R. Baggs pickup system
* Extremely comfortable, lightweight body that you will want to play for hours.
* Multiple free options as each guitar is custom built.
* Free case included with guitar

Jon Kammerer has been playing guitar since he was 16 years old, and during design school, decided to try building a better guitar. Fifteen years later, he is still on that quest, trying to bring innovation into a field that is slow to adapt to new ideas. Jon is also a full time RN, and works as a volunteer fire fighter and EMT when not working on new guitar ideas.
