Hunter of Mott the Hoople played a "Maltese Falcon"
Thomas back in the late 60's and early 70's. Now
Trent Cooper plays his very own Hembry version. The
most amazing feature of this guitar, other than it's
looks, has to be it's electronics. Each pickup is
wired to a 5-way rotary switch giving each pickup
5 tone settings.

Single coil south
Hum out of phase
in combination with the 3-way pickup selector, gives
this guitar 35 possible pickup combinations! This
guitar has the black textured finish, mirrored top,
chrome hardware, and just enough red accents to really
catch the eye.
