2020 model Rhapsody electro-acoustic in natural - neck has been re-set in the BMG workshop (click on the photos below for a better view of the repair), otherwise brand new, re-strung, set up, and complete with padded gig bag. Sold as seen.
A superb, next generation, small-bodied, electro-acoustic guitar designed in collaboration with Brian May, the BMG Rhapsody features a distinctive RS-style double cutaway design and serious quality Fishman on-board electrics.
This new, upgraded 2020 version of the Rhapsody now features the Fishman Flex Blend system - incorporating a Sonicore under-saddle pickup for true acoustic reproduction and a soundhole mounted condenser microphone for an additional level of dynamic sound quality. The discrete Flex Series preamp includes a volume control, pickup blend, chromatic LED tuner with mute, phase switch, and a variable semi-parametric EQ control that allows players to choose either a natural, flat sound (with no EQ) or dial in a “scooped” tone with progressively emphasized treble and bass, and a reduced midrange response, dependent on their playing style.
With its compact dimensions, road-ready construction and a crisp, versatile sound, the Rhapsody makes an ideal travel companion, songwriting partner and first-call studio instrument with a delivery and performance fit for any professional stage.
