This handmade electric guitar delivers a wide detailed sound. Equipped with Nick Silver Ivory Tulip pickups, this instrument transmits every nuance of the player.
The Alnico II magnets are 24 carat gold-plated and give the guitar a distinctive look. The pickups inspire with enchanting clean sounds as well as with powerful, rich distorted sounds.
The switch offers five classic pickup combinations: Neck Solo, Neck & Middle, Middle Solo, Bridge & Middle, and Bridge Solo.
A volume control and a global tone control are all you need to adjust the desired sound of this guitar. Only high-quality parts like TAD Sprague Orange Drops or CTS pots have been installed in the electronics compartment.
Woods & 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 without losing tuning stability and sustain. Its optimized roll-off and a thin stainless steel washer distribute the pressure evenly and guarantee a reliable and stable function over a long period of time.
The Schaller M6 Locking Tuners guarantee a quick string change and high tuning stability.
The body is made of two-piece alder. The neck is made of a beautifully grained piece of walnut with a wenge fingerboard. The open-grained structure feels very supple and grippy in the player's hand.
The neck is treated with Odie's Oil. It is the perfect finish to bring out the beautiful grain of the wood while protecting the surface from moisture and dirt.
Last but not least, this guitar has a very unique, custom-made, 2-ply Pickguard made of linoleum and a thin aluminium sheet. Linoleum is very resistant to scratches and it just looks and feels amazing.
The guitar is delivered well protected in a Gator Hardshell Case.
