Artisan instrument builder James Hutchinson releases the first in a series of high-concept electric guitars inspired by popular culture and reimagining iconic themes from Films, TV and video games.
The Cybertech T-RON draws its namesake from Disney’s 1982 Sci Fi classic ‘TRON’ by taking Hutchinson’s original Cybertech concept and applying a retro-futuristic ‘living circuit’ theme, with dazzling light pipe inlays across the body. A pair of Gibson humbuckers provides iconic analog warmth which is easily transformed by the recessed XY Midipad and further augmented by the on board Ghost MIDI interface system. Incredible arrays of tones and effects have been painstakingly engineered into this guitar.
Locking tuners complement a custom made through-body string retainer in solid brass, assuring stable tuning and ample sustain. The high gloss paintwork has been evenly worn by hand, creating a finely textured surface to better showcase the lighting system, whilst offering a robust and roadworthy finish.
Orders for the Cybertech T-RON can be placed through the Hutchinson Guitar Concepts website, which also features a portfolio of finished instruments that exert design inspiration from themes as diverse as Steampunk, Natural Disasters, and Chinese dynasties.
Hutchinson’s Cybertech, Molten Lava, and Bronze Top guitars are just a few examples of what can be achieved through intricate wood carving, masterful finishing and state of the art electronics. Hundreds of hours of work go into every fine detail, ensuring that each Tibetan symbol is perfectly engraved, and each ripple of molten lava oozes and glows with incredible LED lighting effects.
Every guitar featured in Hutchinson’s portfolio is available as a theme to order for your own guitar and several of these portfolio items are commissions from world touring, platinum selling artists.
