This guitar features a set of Nick Silver Ivory Tulip pickups which project all details of your playing and add a beautiful warm and balanced vibe to it. All pickup combinations have a strong character without any harshness even in the bridge position.
These pickups deliver beautiful clean sounds as well as punchy and smooth in higher gain settings.
A lever-switch lets you choose from five classical pickup combinations: neck solo, neck & middle, middle solo, bridge & middle and bridge solo.
A volume control and a global tone control is all you need to dial in the sound you want from this guitar. High quality parts such as TAD Vintage Oil caps or CTS pots are used in the electronics compartment.
Wood & Hardware
We used a very special combination of wood, materials and hardware for this build.
With the Wudtone CP Holy Grail tremolo you can achieve shimmering surf sounds while not loosing tuning stability and sustain. It’s optimized roll-over behaviour and a thin shim of stainless steel distribute the pressure evenly, guaranteeing reliable and stable functionality over a long period of time.
The body is made of temperature treated noble chestnut. It has similar characteristics to swamp ash regarding grain and weight but it is locally harvested in Europe.
The neck is made of a beautifully grained piece of walnut with a wenge fretboard. The open grained structure feels beautiful in the player’s hand.
The neck is treated with Odie’s Oil. It is the perfect finish to expose the beautiful figure of the wood while protecting the surface against moisture and dirt.
Last but not least, this guitar has a very unique custom-made 2-ply pickguard made from linoleum and a thin aluminium sheet. Linoleum is very resistant against scratches and it looks and feels just amazing.
