  • Fretboard radius: 12"
  • String span at bridge: 2"


  • Body: Mahogany

  • Tuners: Schaller M6-A
  • Bridge: Copy of Turner’s early-’70s Alembic design built by Stars Guitars

  • Controls: Quasi-parametric EQ with hardwire-bypass switch, a 150 Hz–3.5 kHz sweep knob, 12 dB boost/cut knob, and Master Volume and passive Tone knobs

Ever since Lindsey Buckingham took delivery of #79-003, the Model One guitar has been highly sought after for its combination of Old World aesthetics and modern, full-bodied tonal range. Played clean, it sounds incredibly acoustic and detailed. But when the volume kicks up, it screams louder and longer than any guitar you've played... without unwanted feedback or breakup.
