The Curtis 1 P.U. model is named Muddy because it's as muddy as the name implies.
The pickups are Curtis bridge pickups with high gain, so there is more variable range at the volume than the regular 1 P.U. model, and the tone sounds acoustic even when the volume is turned down a bit. When compared to the Curtis with just the front P.U., the Muddy is like having a larger gauge set of strings, and the tone of the plain strings is a bit thicker in the midrange. It has a very muddy tone. This is not only the effect of the pickups, but also the effect of the Detroit Block at the bottom of the bridge, which is used on all KING SNAKEs, as well as the increased body resonance due to the fact that there are no holes in the bridge. This sound is the best match for those who play old blues and jazz from the 40s to early 50s. If you want to play a wider range of music from the 60's, I recommend the 2 P.U. model Curtis.
