新しく僕のギターラインナップに加わったBlast Cultのリミテッド・エディション“The Batavia Guitar”-BLACKモデル。ビルダーのジェイソンのロックンロール愛がすべてのディテールに現れている。セクシーでグラマラスなデザイン、ネック、すべてのバランスが良く、音も太くてシャープで弾きやすい。旅の相棒が増えた事をとても嬉しく思う。 Blast Cult limited edition "The Batavia Guitar” -black model- is a new addition to my guitar line-ups. The builder, Jason, pours his passion and love for rock’n roll into every detail on this guitar. The appearance is sexy and glamorous, and the neck and other parts are well-balanced. It offers the right blend of sweet and chime, the playability is excellent. Truly welcoming a new traveling companion on my tour.
