New from Amfisound: The Halti Siren

Halti Siren Banner

At this year’s Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin (Germany), Amfisound Guitars presented their newest addition to the Halti line-up:

The Halti Siren is a modern, handcrafted take on Gibson’s venerable Les Paul Junior, TV and Special models. It is a 22-fret, 24.75″ scale, set-neck solidbody guitar, crafted from mahogany (plus rosewood for the fingerboard).

The Halti Siren is available with a single P-90 – or with two pickups – from renowned Finnish pickup specialist Jarno Salo. A compensated wraparound bridge by ABM further helps make this guitar a very toneful beast. The guitar comes in a vintage-authentic nitrocellulose finish.

The pièce de résistance, though, is Amfisound’s brand-new Set-Lock neck joint, which enables you to reach the top frets without breaking a sweat.

Amfisoundin uudistettut Halti-mallit saa nyt uudenlaisella Set-Lock-kaulaliitoksella, joka helpottaa huomattavasti pääsyn ylimmille nauhoille.

Their updated Halti-models are now made with Amfisound’s Set-Lock neck joint, which makes it easy to reach the neck’s dusty end.
