Flick a switch to go from electric guitar to acoustic guitar and blend the two for new creative sonic options with another flick. The Hybrid 55 gives you all of this in one instrument! This Hybrid gives you a potent electric guitar performance instrument. It has Rockfield pickups for great electric guitar sounds and our Great 8 mod to allow you to split each humbucker for a single-coil tone. The hardtail bridge is a Fishman® Powerbridge that adds a big acoustic tone to your options. This guitar does it all and does it really well. Lighten your load (one guitar instead of two) and increase your sonic options.
Unlock the full potential of your MK Hybrid with a Y-cable. This allows you to send the signal from the magnetic pickups to one amp or channel and the signal from the acoustic tone to another. This lets you perfect your sound.
NOTE: Use of Y-cable is optional, use regular cable to a single amp or channel, no problem!
The Great 8 electronics mod is one of our most demanded mods. With this mod we double the sonic spectrum of our two-humbucker instruments. You still have the full powered tone of each humbucker and the traditional settings to give you neck, bridge or both. With Great 8 we add two push-pull switches to the volume and tone knobs, that when pulled up one coil of the humbucker is disengaged giving you a cleaner single coil tone. You can control each pickup separately, maximizing your options. What can you do with 8 sonic options?
Comfort without sacrifice, that is how you might describe our Modern-C shape. The size is what many would call medium to medium-thin and the shape is a really smooth and comfortable round shape. The thin profile makes it faster than the typical vintage neck, while the carefully contoured C-shape makes it comfortable for extended playing.
