Little Crow Corvinho SD Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar Review

This is the new Little Crow Corvino SD Electric Guitar from Dave & Viv at little Crow Guitars in Perth, Western Australia. I dubbed it the “blues machine” when I first received it because it was the best blues tone I’ve ever had.

Sounds fantastic.  Dave and Viv have really stepped it up on this new version of the Little Crow Corvinho SD.  It feels great in the hand and the pickups sound fantastic.  This is easily one of the nicest Australian made guitars I have come across.

Favorite Guitar Tones

The Little Crow Corvinho SD is one of the few guitars I have ever played whereby I can’t make a clear decision on which pickup tone I like the best.  The neck pickup has a nice snap to it while the bridge pickup is 100% Telecaster.  Even the middle (noise free) position sounds fantastic for rhythm tones.  The majority of my solos start on the neck pickup and then I usually flick it straight over to the bridge pickup for more sting.

The pickups are Mick Brierley pickups and they are matched set so their output is very comparable on both the neck mini-humbucker and the bridge (Tele’) Pickup.
