The Macmull Custom Guitars Heartbreaker is the newest oldest Telecaster style guitar we met!
Vintage guitar lovers often cling to the past. You may agree, you may not, but there is something in old 50’s and 60’s Stratocaster and Telecaster guitar sound and feel that is unique and special. Macmull Custom Guitars are all about that – Getting that vintage tone in a newly made guitar!
To achieve their goal the Israeli company studied countless of vintage Fender guitars, experimented with woods, pickups, weight and specifications. The result is the Heartbreaker, a lightweight Telecaster style guitar which simply put, sounds vintage! Macmull believes that lightweight wood sounds and reacts better, not to mention more player-friendly. That is why the company is very strict about the woods used on the Heartbreaker, each guitar has one piece Alder body which do not exceed 3,4 kg. Also on their necks Macmull went with the old school single action truss rods instead of the newer double action alternative which are more in use today. Why you ask? Because they found out that the body-neck resonance is better with the single action one. The true magic though, in our humble opinion, is in the pickups Macmull custom guitar wounds for the Heartbreaker. They are deep and tight with the right amount of punch a good old Broadcaster guitar has.
Playability wise as we demoed the Heartbreaker we could not be happier, this guitar can carry a super low action yet be buzz free, it is super comfortable to play on. The Oval C neck shape sits perfectly in the hand and even the most complicated chord shapes come easy on the Heartbreaker.
From top to bottom the Macmull Custom Guitars Heartbreaker is a stunning, musical guitar which may break your heart, or finally mend it.
