Here’s what Bunting have to say about their Meoldy Queen model – “The Melody Queen features some great hardware: A Mastery offset bridge, which is without a doubt the best on the market. A Duesenberg Tremola tailpiece – this has the perfect style and functionality, and offers some great improvements over its ancestor. Last are the locking Gotoh tuners – an excellent combination of vintage looks with modern benefits.
Our Melody Queen comes in two 60’s inspired outfits. A Single Coil version with 2 JM pickups and a Mini Humbucker version with 2 Firebird pickups.
The JM version is a classic favorite. Its bell – like clean tones are biting and clear, and when played into an overdriven amp or fuzz pedal, they generate some of the most beautifully rich and complex harmonic textures.
The FB version cooks up a different flavor of offset sound. This is a Humbucker that comes close to a single coil tone, but with some added chime and earlier breakup. Firebird pickups use a blade magnet to get their unique sound – this is not your dad’s PAF sound! These pickups shine in the Melody Queen.”
