The U10 features a similar body to the U8 (slightly smaller than that of the U8 Deluxe), a wider neck to accommodate the greater string range, a pickup for each string section and passive electronics. While it remains true to the original Touch Guitar concept of a single self-contained full-range instrument, its design also allows for separate output of the two “bass” and “guitar” ranges if desired. This is achieved via a split stereophonic pickup and a two-plug output socket through which each range is processed separately, plus individual volume controls for each of the two ranges. A unique switching system provides all the flexibility to use it with one output and stereo through two outputs.
As with all Touch Guitars®, construction and finishing options (from wood types used through to custom paint and varnish) are discussed with and chosen by the customer, as part of the custom-creation process.
