Comments The looks of a metal body without the weight! A really striking instrument that sounds great. The wood body M-1 construction significantly
adds to the bass response. Tricone guitars have a lovely sweet and complex treble and incredible sustain compared to single cones; but not a lot of power in the bass.The wood body Tricone M-1 versions a very powerful bass response that sustains beautifully.
