Custom77 was created in 2007, in the city of Lyon, FRANCE, by Jerome and Job; two guitarists from the same band and both real vintage gear addicts. Throughout the past 6 years, Custom77 has never ceased to expand: Selling more than 5000 guitars worldwide, creating new designs and endorsing international artists. The brand made its official debut in the U.S.A at the 2014 NAMM show and received very positive feedbacks from press, retailers and artists. What press say: “This is a real a peach.” Total Guitar (UK)”Custom77 is combining interesting ideas on design with a well-considered choice of components” Guitar & Bass (UK)”Like Gretsch on steroids” Guitar & Bass (UK)Artists who play Custom77:Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), My Bloody Valentine, Slow dive, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Earth, Portishead, Anathema, Trigger finger, Studio Valley Recording (LA), Greg Gordon (producer/sound engineer) and many more. Features: The distinctive-looking Roxy cuts an original dash, helped by allusions to oddball vintage brands. Despite a pretty meaty body, the internal airspace keeps weight down to a well-balanced 3.6kg (7.94Lbs), while some chamfering at the neck join aids upper fret fingering. The P77 provides power, plummy depth and snaky treble in equal quantities. The humbucker maintains the same output but adds plenty of edge backed up by a midrange bark. Combining both produces an effective blend of a heavy-toned, punchy low end and honky highs, a bit like a Gretsch on steroids. Up the gain and you get everything from bluesy grunt and grit to brash, gnarly thrash. The smoothly progressive volume pots come in useful for cleaning-up.
