Dean Guitars has launched its new Colt Bigsby with Piezo electric guitar.
The latest six-string in the company's Standard Series, this semi-hollow features a vintage-style Colt maple body, an arched maple top, a set-through maple neck, an ebony fingerboard with 22 tall and narrow frets and pearloid block inlays, and an Original Bigsby bridge.
The Colt Bigsby is loaded with DMT (Dean Magnetic Technologies) neck and bridge pickups, controlled by piezo and passive volume controls, plus a master tone finished with top hat gold knobs and a 3-way mini toggle.
The Colt Bigsby also features a built-in piezo with dual passive outputs, which guitarists can bypass in favor of the magnetic pickups, use on its own, or use with the magnetic pickups - patched independently to a stereo or blended mono setup.
Gold Grover tuners and a Vintage White finish with gold trimmings and three-ply white/black/white binding round out the guitar's looks.
The Dean Colt Bigsby with Piezo guitar is available now for $1,199.
