The SURFBREAKER 2021 model is the much-requested humbucker version, and it's finally here!
The color chosen for the 2021 model is "Army Green", a tough and robust color that gives it a calm and chic look. It's not just green, but it's layered with multiple colors to create a unique natural look that blends in with scenery.
The first humbucker-equipped SURF BREAKER
This is the first SURF BREAKER to feature humbuckers, which gives it a thick, vintage-like tone. It is made of red pine wood, which is characterized by its moderate weight and good sound, and is equipped with the original "BEANO" PU to create a well-balanced sound with rich overtones in each note. You can really feel the appeal of this guitar when you overdrive it in jazz, rock and blues genres.
Red pine guitar
The body is made of Japanese red pine, which was cut down due to pest damage in Matsumoto City, and the knots and cracks that are not normally used are used to create a rugged yet natural red pine guitar.
Deviser and the Aska Factory, located in Matsumoto City, Nagano Prefecture, started the Nagano Red Pine Guitar Project to raise awareness of the environmental problems that are occurring in our daily lives due to the increasing insect damage to red pine trees.
As a company that sells and manufactures guitars, it is our duty to keep an eye on the environment.
Insect damage is caused by the pine weevil parasite, which affects the ecosystem and harms humans due to the spraying agents used for their extermination.
We cannot do much to stop the damage, but through the means of the guitar, we would like to let people know about the damage caused by pine weevils, and we would like to use the guitar as a musical instrument to help as many people as possible.
We will continue to send out guitars made from red pine trees that were unavoidably cut down.
