You'll have incredible tuning stability, a rich tonal palette with a wealth of switching options, and gorgeous feel to top it off - these guitars have to be played to be believed! A new, retro headstock design and a series of alluring finishes ooze class - the icing on the cake.
Body & Neck
Alder is the wood of choice for the body; lightweight and medium-density, it'll ensure a comfortable playing experience and a rich mid-range emphasis. The neck is made from roasted maple, adding a bright, snappy quality to your tone.
Electronics & Hardware
Top-class Gotoh machine heads and tremolo bridge ensure excellent tuning stability and consistent intonation. The hardware is an understated mixture of chrome and white, a tip of the hat to high-speed S-type guitars of old.
It's also triple-loaded with Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups, ensuring a full-bodied, rich response that perfectly compliments the resonant alder body. The unique Dyna-MIX9 switching system provides you with a vast tonal palette - this guitar really can do it all!
