AW6-3 (Arched Wave) Awe Naturale

AW6- Full view AW6-Body Front AW6-Body side AW6-Close up - control panel

Body: Ergonomic, organic, wrap-around, Arched-Wave design.  Made with tonally-resonant maple in the center spine, 2 strips of beautiful ribbon mahogany, followed with a strong, mellowing finish of eastern ash in the outer planks. 

Sound: Very similar to a Fender Stratocaster.  Chimey country twang in the bridge pickup.  Nice "squawnk" when combining the bridge and middle pickup (position 2).  A very satisfying mid-range voice in position 3 (combining the bridge and neck pickups).  And cooler tonalities from switch positions 4 and 5.

The body is organically chambered, to minimize weight without sacrificing acoustic mass and inertia.
(Scroll to the bottom of this link for further details about chambering.)

MT5-1 (Mutated Tele)

Full view Front iso Close up, front Player's view

Body: Ergonomic, curvaceous and sexy.  The MT5 gently and naturally conforms to the human body.  Using some of the classic Fender Telecaster hardware, the guitar then deviates from the flat, 1950s styling of its classic predecessor, and morphs into something far more natural, elegant and compelling.

The center spine is constructed from sonically pure, high-density, high-sustain maple.  The spine is flanked by 2 planks of black walnut.  The remaining body is made Eastern Ash. 

The body is organically chambered; both to minimize weight and enable an interesting mix of acoustic resonances not produced by solid body guitars.  Two of the chambers are "ported", while the other two are sealed.

Weight: 7.9 lbs

Color: Blonde beige

Neck:  25.5" scale, dual truss-rod maple with Indian rosewood fingerboard.  Compound radius.  6150 frets.  Nut: White Graph Tech TUSQ

Pickups:
    Bridge:  Single coil, Dimarzio DP 178 True Velvet (215 mV)
    Neck:    Dual coil, Dimarzio DP 190 Air Classic, vintage output (206 mV)

 Custom Polyjet knobs

Sound:  Playing through the bridge pickup (Position 1) produces an unmistakable, high-twang Tele sound - great for everything from clean, country chicken-picken to ear-piercing, mind-numbing, super-trebly distortion.

Unlike a standard Tele however, switch positions 2 through 4 offer far more tonal variety -  from a Strat-like sound (position 2) to a cooler jazz sound (positions 3 and 4).

BB3-1 (Back Bender)

BB3 - 0 BB3 - 14 BB3 - 18 BB3 - 6

Body:  This guitar screams "ergonomic".  It naturally conforms to the player's body.  No un-natural flat, board-like surfaces or edges that were popular in the 1950s (because that was the only way they knew how to make them).  KOZM Guitars are made the way electric guitars were meant to be made - for human beings.

This BB3 is made with maple in the center "spine" area, and Pacific alder in the outer areas.  The lighter alder helps keep the weight down, and provides a nice acoustic balance to the denser, stiffer maple. 

The body is also "organically chambered", which reduces the weight even further.  Scroll to the bottom of this link for more information on the chambering process.

Weight: 6.5 lbs
