Sleep the Owls was started intentionally as a two-piece with a specific sound in mind. I love my 335, but it just isn't big enough for StO. Necessity begat Grendel, 100% designed and built from scratch for our sound. I'm not into pickup switching and tons of knobs. Here is Grendel, simple, primal, and mean. She has a single P90 pickup placed in middle(ish) position and a volume and tone control to respond to room acoustics. I added a custom single string pickup under the bass string running to a separate output to emphasize the low end. She has a 7 piece hard maple and black walnut neck-through body, with a clear coat to show off the wood work. See below for her origin story.
