INGLEWOOD, Calif., Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- NAMM 2019 marks the world debut of GUITARMADILLO™, expanding the MODEL ONE lineup of self-amplified electric guitars. MODEL ONE'S patented tone chamber and proprietary analog electronics provide beautiful clean and overdrive tones from its built-in speakers. GUITARMADILLO™ takes the self-amplified guitar concept "OFF-ROAD" with its rugged textured finish (available in 5 colors), making it the go-to guitar for grabbing those bursts of inspiration wherever and whenever they strike.
You now have complete freedom to easily take your tone "to go" -- backyard, beach, camping, mountain top, skate park, hotel room, tour bus, street corner, subway, dorm, coffee shop, piano lounge, bedroom… or just relaxing in a favorite chair. GUITARMADILLO™ goes wherever life takes you.
Like the original MODEL ONE, GUITARMADILLO'S APM-1 analog preamp and 18-watt power amp provide punchy (loud!) overdrive as well as warm clean tones. Built-in analog delay and modulation effects - no pedals are required. Play time is greater than 8 hours between charges thanks to its Lithium-Ion battery power supply.
Guitars with built-in amp and speakers have been around since the '60s, but the quest for a self-amplified, pro-quality electric guitar with great tone has been elusive. EP has cracked the code, creating the guitar that does what no others can, and was awarded a US Utility Patent for their tuned acoustic labyrinth.
The result of the EP team's research and development is an amazing electric guitar that offers a unique and inspiring playing experience. Former Chief Design Engineer at Kurzweil Music, Tim Thompson said, "These guys are on to something special. That's why I joined them… it feels like my early days at Kurzweil." (Tim is currently head of EP's electronics division).
Guitar players are invited to come and experience GUITARMADILLO in person at NAMM 2019, Hall E #1548, in the Anaheim Convention Center.
