  • BJFe Model G artist custom (MG5K) - Models the sound of the Gibson GA-40 combo.

    The Model G captures the unique voice and response of an often overlooked brand of amps from the ’50s/’60s ~ the Gibsons that were right there at the beginning with Fender, Valco, Vox and Marshall.

    The MG’s sound is somewhere near the Tweeds and Supros but with a stronger and clearer voice, and a particular upper mid sound and snarl.

    The Model G is related to the Honey Bee in the same way a Gibson Falcon or GA40 is related to a Supro…cousins with obvious similarities, but important differences.

    Enclosure is a beautiful artist custom with clearcoat over gold leaf on black. Only 10 were made in this format to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Bjorn's Model G. This 5K has Bjorn's latest upgrades and is the most versatile Model G made to date.

    The pedal is packed with the sound of a Gibson amp, which is sometimes neglected due to its high reputation as a guitar maker. The sound is somewhat like a tweed or Supro amp, but with a powerful, clear tone, and especially a roar in the
    upper midrange.

    Model G is a drive pedal developed from Honey Bee OD. Gibson amps, especially the old GA-40 and Falcon, are close in construction to Supro amps, with distinct similarities and important differences, so do the Honey Bee OD and Model G. A tone stack with 3 EQs allows you to create sounds with amp-like operability.

    ・V: Adjusts the volume.
    ・D: Adjusts the intensity of distortion.
    ・T: Adjusts the appearance of high frequencies.
    ・M: Adjusts the output of the midrange.
    ・B: Adjusts the appearance of low frequencies.

    Model G is powered by a center-negative DC8-12V adapter or a 9V battery.
