STEEL MEETS WOOD
Made of solid wood with a single loaded steel pickguard mounted to the top - not recessed - with everything integrated, even the bridge!
Solid wood in the center helps control feedback and allows for a string through design
Sides are hollow under the guard with only two "f" sound holes in the steel to help control resonance and feedback
Hand-etched geometrical pattern with applied patinas and clearcoat to prevent corrosion
Extremely well balanced guitar weighing between 6-8 lbs. on average
INNOVATIVE HEADSTOCK DESIGN
The decorative steel plate mounted to the headstock not only looks cool, but eliminates the need for string ferrules since the holes keep the tuner shafts in perfect alignment. The staggered-height, Gotoh tuners eliminate string trees and put even string tension over the nut for prefect tune and pitch.
Loaded with Rio Grande pickups, simply the best pickups being produced in the USA today, the tones are warm and complex with harmonic overtones. They have an edge to them for sizzling leads and controllable feedback, while still retaining brightness, amazing note articulation and string clarity. It’s pure magic and a sound all its own.
YOU'LL LOVE THIS NECK
It feels like a vintage neck that's been worn in over time. The fretboard edges have been hand rolled, the finish left off of the back of the neck and the grain sealed for ULTRA fast playing and no "drag". The soft "v" profile just feels right.
