EGC500

The EGC500 was conceived for Steve Albini, He is an avid TB500 player, so we set out to make a guitar that would withstand the abuse that the original (nor any guitar, really) was never intended to endure. We started with an alder body and our core EGC neck through and added a period-correct aluminum chrome plated bridge receiver with chrome plated brass saddles. As Steve had done for his TB500 after he broke it in half, we anchored the entire guitar to a massive aluminum resonator plate, which made it essentially unbreakable. The EGC500 has balanced reverse wound/reverse polarity neck and bridge EGC single coil pickups with ALNICO 5 slugs, so you get the immense clarity that this model was meant to have.  This clarity affords you the option of going from beautiful to incredibly harsh tones.

Standard DC

The Standard DC is the flagship model of EGC. The Standard DC is not named so because it is ordinary; rather it is the new standard by which all others are judged. Designed for Kevin’s former bandmate D. Croll, the model outlived the band but the name and model lived on. The Standard DC is based on a hybrid design that became the core of all EGC models: a solid neck through neck with an aluminum body mounted around it.  The Standard DC design brought together everything we loved about the aluminum guitar world, with a few twists of our own thrown in. Once the prototype was completed, it surpassed all our expectations of clarity, chorus, biting highs and clearly defined lows.  We knew we had made something special.  Quite simply, EGC raised the standard.

TT1

Around 2005, Uzeda and Shellac where on the road together leading up to the Touch and Go 25th Anniversary Show. Agostino Tillota let Kevin know that he had spoken with Todd Trainer and Todd was interested in developing a guitar. The result is the TT1 model. The original TT1 featured the EGC neck through neck with all aluminum body, pickguard and control plate. This collaboration resulted in a timeless design with the range of sound to do so much more.

The TT1 is now available as a guitar, baritone or bass, with various material and finish options for the body as well as various finish options for the neck. This model still comes with an aluminum pickguard and your choice of pickup cover finishes.  The TT1 guitar and baritone models normally feature reverse wound/reverse polarity EGC balanced single coil pickups, but EGC humbuckers are available upon request.  The TT1 bass model features EGC bass pickups.

The TT2 is available as a guitar, baritone or bass, with various material and finish options for the body as well as various finish options for the neck.

Signature Models

King Buzzo Standard

Several years ago, Kevin checked his voicemail and Buzz had left him a message.  Kevin was so sure that someone was messing with him that he drove over to his buddy Alex’s place and had him listen to the message.  Sure enough, one of Kevin’s favorite guitar players of all time was calling about having an instrument made. They spoke the next day and Buzz said he was interested in a 24.75 inch scale guitar with 498Tand 490R pickups.  The King Buzzo Standard was born.

The current evolution of the King Buzzo Standard features an EGC low output humbucker in the neck and a 498T or EGC full output humbucker in the bridge position with an independent volume and tone knob for each pickup.  The toggle is on the upper horn and oriented side-to-side. This model can be ordered with polished, gold anodize or orange anodize finishes (anodize finished are an additional charge). An acrylic bodied version is available by special request (for no additional charge). If it’s good enough for the King, it’s good enough for you.

The price of the King Buzzo Standard starts at $2,800.00usd.

Tom Petersson Bass

Tom Petersson is the only person we have encountered that has invented an instrument, so when he approached us about making a 12 string bass for him, it was quite an honor. We started with an asymmetrical all aluminum body design with our standard 34-inch bass neck and the end result is a heavy metal piano.

The Tom Petersson Bass features 2 EGC bass humbuckers pushed all the way against the neck. This placement gives a massive variety of sound that has to be heard to be understood or believed. The Tom Petersson Bass features a gold powder coated aluminum pickguard.  This b model comes with independent volume and tone control knobs for each pickup and 3-way switching. The way this instrument sounds is nothing short of spectacular.

The price of the Tom Petersson Bass is $3,500.00usd. 

Scott Kelly Custom

The most recent addition to the EGC Signature line is the Scott Kelly Custom.  This guitar is a hybrid aluminum-necked acrylic-bodied monster. This model features EGC’s large C-shaped 24.75 inch scale polished neck (with a width of 1.75 at the nut and 2.25 at the 22nd fret) with Sperzel tuners.  The symmetrical acrylic body is 1.25 inches thick and features and aluminum pickguard as well as an aluminum rear resonator plate. The pickguard is finished in matte black and the rear plate is industrial black wrinkle.

This model features a Lace Drop & Gain humbucking bridge pickup and a Lace Nitro Hemi humbucking neck pickup, which have been custom made for Scott and this model. The control configuration for the Scott Kelly Custom is: 2 independent volume knobs and a single 3-way switch located on the upper horn. The tone knobs have been eliminated and replaced with 2 pennies to cover the holes. The pennies have their own meaning, which we will leave to your imagination. This instrument is made for the sound that is Neurosis.

The price of the Scott Kelly Custom is $3,100.00usd.

IsotonaG

Designed entirely by Agostino Tillota, the IsotonaG is a guitar that is very special to both Ago and EGC. The design turned out far beyond anything we could have imagined. It looks so modern, yet so classic. From headstock to strap button, this instrument is an amazing work of art.

The IsotonaG is all aluminum 25.1 inch scale guitar featuring EGC’s standard neck through design with a six on a side headstock. The IsotonaG can be finished with matte black powder coat or black anodize (by request for an additional charge) and features a polished aluminum pickguard as well as three cream EGC reverse wound/reverse polarity single coil pickups.  The control configuration is: 1 master volume, 1 master tone and a single 3-way switch. There is a push/pull on the tone knob to turn the neck pickup on independently, so any combination of the pickups is available.

Sonically, this instrument is such an amazing guitar equaled only by its exceptional design. The IsotonaG was designed by one of the greats and you can tell when you play it.

The price of the IsotonaG starts at $2,900.00usd.

Brent Hinds Custom

Based on the Series Three, this model came from a collaboration with Brent Hinds. He wanted an acrylic Series Three that was unlike anything ever made before. His wishes were granted.  From the clear body to the German carve this guitar is unlike anything seen before.

The Brent Hinds Custom is a 25.1-inch scale guitar featuring EGC balanced humbucker pickups with 2 volumes, a master tone and 3-way switching.  This guitar is available with the Maestro-style tremolo or hard tail as well as a wood grain patterned Formica or plastic tortoise shell pickguard.

The price of the Brent Hinds starts at $2,900.00usd.

 

Duane Denison Chessie

Duane Denisons Chessie is so much wrapped up into a single instrument. To build something for the hands behind so many amazing songs is more than an honor. This guitar was based on several strict criteria.  First, the entire instrument had to weigh less than 8.5 pounds; and the construction had to be all aluminum. Next, the instrument had to have a Bigsby Tremolo system. Finally, the neck had to be quite thick as well as incredibly lightweight.  The neck is 1.75 inches wide at the nut and 2.25 inches wide at the 22nd fret, .75 inches thick at the nut and .85 inches thick at the 20th fret. Kevin designed a 2-piece neck wherein the bulk of the neck aluminum is channeled out and then topped with another piece of aluminum.  This design drastically lightened the neck with the added benefit of making it incredibly strong.  This neck is now referred to as the “Denison” neck.

The body of the Chessie is a symmetrical double cutaway designed by Duane with "cat eye" F-holes and an off-the-body 3-ply black pickguard. The Chessie features Gibson Burstbucker pickups with independent volume and tone knobs, 3-way switching, a 3 degree neck angle, as well as a Schaller roller bridge with Bigsby B-5 Tremolo system (our apologies to all the leftys that this model is priced higher for left handed orientation, but it is due to the added cost of the left handed Bigsby).  This model is available with a polished finish or select powder coat colors. The combination of being so light weight and having F-holes gives this guitar an amazing amount of projection and a sound that is all its own.

The price of the Duane Denison Chessie starts at $3,200.00.
