Mark Thwaite Solo-II

Mark Thwaite, one of the most versatile studio/session guitarists from the UK, consequentially has a very versatile signature model - a Solo-II made of mahogany with a solid maple top. The pickups are a Seymour Duncan JB SH-4B on the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro II APH-1N on the neck. A Bigsby Archtop B70 tremolo completes this workhorse.

Available in the finish/color variants:


Seymour Duncan® Pickups

Seymour Duncan® is one of the best-known US manufacturers of guitar and bass pickups. The JB humbucker, also known as the SH-4, is one of the most popular pickups. Whether blues, country, fusion, punk, hard rock, grunge, thrash, the JB always sounds just right. The low frequencies are full and powerful, the highs are clear and detailed, and there's a boost in the upper midrange that adds a lot of crunch and chunk to heavy chords.

Bigsby® Vibrato

The Bigsby® Vibrato was developed in the 1940s as one of the first tremolo systems. The vibrato itself consists of a base plate made of solid aluminum in which a rotatable steel shaft is mounted. The strings are wound around the steel shaft, to which the vibrato lever is also attached. If you move the vibrato lever, the strings are wound or unwound and the pitch changes according to the fluctuating string tension. The Bigsby vibrato allows slight fluctuations in pitch of around 1-2 semitones.

Locking Tuner

Locking tuners are specifically designed to increase tuning stability while making string changes easier. The main difference from traditional tuners is the way the strings are attached. With locking tuners, the string is not only wrapped around the mechanism, but also secured by a locking system. This system consists of a small clamping mechanism or screw that holds the string in place.


A “set-neck” (glued-in) neck is a design that is characterized by its tonal and playing properties. In contrast to neck-body connections, where the neck is screwed, the set-neck neck is firmly glued to the guitar body. The fixed neck connection eliminates the need for screws and additional connection mechanisms, resulting in a more direct transmission of string vibrations to the body. The result is a powerful, resonant sound with longer sustain.

Rosewood Fretboard

A rosewood fretboard is characterized by a warm, resonant tone quality. The density and structure of rosewood help the string vibrations to be transmitted efficiently, resulting in a balanced sound spectrum with emphasized lows, clear mids and silky highs.
