It is a set-neck, semi-solid Telecaster style body with hand-picked, meticulously chosen woods. Tausch guitars give new meaning to hand-made. He makes about two guitars a month. The attention to detail is extraordinary. He uses Harry Haussel pickups that sound amazing. It has a strat style tremelo with a Pau Ferro wooden block instead of the metal traditionally used. The resonance is unreal. The semi-acoustic body made of Pearwood gives the 665 a truly unbelievable loud and "alive" acoustic response.
The outstanding characteristics of these instruments can be summarized by the following quality, construction and design features:
- hand-selected, meticulously chosen woods
- high quality hardware and electronics
- pickups by Harry Häussel
- 26 3/16 inch scale (665mm)
- semi -acoustic concept featuring a full-length sustain block and a "set in" neck
- straight perfection-oriented design, keeping a close watch on top craftsmanship down to the smallest details
The semi-acoustic body made of pear wood makes the 665 sound fundamental powerful with an amazing tonal selectivity.
A maple neck supports the sound characteristics of the body.
The "set in" neck joint enables comfortable access up to the highest registers.
