Trent Cooper's MINISTER

Ian Hunter of Mott the Hoople played a "Maltese Falcon" by Harvey 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.

  • 1) Humbucker in series
  • 2) Single coil north
  • 3) Humbucker in parallel
  • 4) Single coil south
  • 5) Hum out of phase

That, 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.
