Default Crafter SAT Charcoal Burst

I have played worship music in church for years and I had a Crafter SA a while ago and liked it ok but there were some things about it I couldn't get used to. The main 2 challenges for me was an acoustic with electric sustain and the fact I could not play it in stereo: a dual simultaneous acoustic and electric signal.

Along comes the SAT (pictured below) which with a Y Cable you can send an electric and acoustic in stereo to separate channels in a PA or Amps. If you are looking for extra dynamics and versatility... I highly recommend chasing one of these down. I typically play a strong acoustic signal and bring the electric side in as needed, typically with some OD, Modulation, Delay, and/or Reverb. Works really really well for this.

I play the acoustic signal through a Fishman ToneDEQ which adds a ton to the sound and effects that seem specifically tailored for acoustic guitar... the dry tone sounds great as a stand alone but the TD adds color, functionality, and all the right stuff.

Just throwing this up for anyone on the fence about trying a hybrid. You can usually snag one for about $450-650 with a little patience.







All the best and happy playing,
Mike

Nice find. I had one for awhile and couldn't bond with it...but it was a nice guitar.
Really dig hybrids.
Happy playing
