How does the semi-hollow construction of Flaxwood guitars work with high-gain active pickups?

0

Although stylewise the Flaxwood is without doubt one of the more versatile all-around guitars, it must be noted that all our guitars have a basically a semi-acoustic architecture; one reviewer placed a Flaxwood on an architectural scale somewhere between a Gibson Les Paul and a Gibson 335, and this is a view we agree with. We mention this as some players who play in the heaviest high-gain spectrum have reported having feedback issues, most notably with the our EMG-equipped active pickup models, the Äijä and the Vasara. Other metal players have said that feedback has not been an issue for them at all. Still, we feel dutybound to bring this issue to public attention, and therefore recommend that if you are a very high gain player and are considering a Flaxwood, DO test the guitar at your actual performance gain levels to ensure that it suits your playing style and environment.
