A jumbo body provides massive tone that's ready to plug in and play.
The Wechter Jumbo 5714 Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a solid spruce top with scalloped braces and rosewood back and sides, an abalone rosette, and a bound neck and headstock. The Jumbo body style produces a bold and rich tone. The Wechter neck has extreme low action making the 5714 a pleasure to play. Attention to detail and fine craftsmanship set Wechter guitars apart.
All Wechter guitars including the Jumbo 5714 undergo a meticulous final setup utilizing their Piek Pro System where they install brand new premium quality coated light gauge strings, adjust the action, adjust the nut, trussrod, saddle, file frets if necessary, clean the fingerboard and bridge, polish and repack - every guitar, every time, so that Wechter knows you are getting a guitar that will play the best right out of the box. All Wechter guitars have a lifetime warranty.
Wechter 3-Pickup electronics system won the Guitar Player Editors' Pick award. It offers a huge repertoire of blended microphone and pickup sounds and consists of a condenser microphone on a flexible gooseneck, a soundhole magnetic pickup with adjustable polepieces and an undersaddle piezo transducer.
The Wechter Jumbo's on-board preamp allows maximum tonal variety and flexibility. A 3-band tone control contours the blended magnetic/piezo signal and does not control microphone signal. The mixing control blends soundhole magnetic pickup and undersaddle piezo transducer. The microphone volume and tone (sharpness) controls let you mix in a little microphone signal after setting the primary magnetic/piezo signal. Dual output high-impedance 1/4" jack and low-impedance XLR jacks can be used simultaneously.
Also included on the preamp is an overall volume control, phantom power LED, low battery power LED, and a phase reversing switch for feedback control. The electronics system can be powered by a 9-volt battery or 48 volt phantom power through the XLR jack.
