Willcox Atlantis electroacoustic wide-body guitar

Atlantis is the first to employ LightWave Optical Pickup Systems, with infrared light technology rather than mics or magnetic pickups

alifornia-based instrument manufacturer and pickup technologies developer Willcox Guitars, will be exhibiting its new range of Atlantis electro-acoustic guitars at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville next week. Atlantis is the first electro-acoustic guitar to employ the LightWave Optical Pickup System, which uses infrared light technology to sense string vibration for a natural amplified acoustic guitar sound, rich in harmonic content – without the feedback of mics or the harshness of piezo pickups.

Constructed of premium tonewoods with a chambered body and soundhole, the Atlantis is ideal for unamplified casual playing or serious practicing and composition. And for amplified playing, the tone and pickups of the Atlantis allow players to blend with drums, bass and electric guitars and fit comfortably into any live mix.
