The 3-piece Mahogany neck and Ebony fingerboard has been designed to provide a smooth, fast play, perfect for shredding and playing lead. The Mahogany/Ebony combination produces tight, warm tones that are defined and open with a fast attack. The two woods provide the guitars sound with a muscular, controlled bass and snappy, sizzling highs. It also comes with many other features including Grover machine heads, 22 X-Jumbo frets and a Floyd Rose nut to increase tuning stability.
The Special Edition V-1 features an EMG 81 humbucker situated at the guitars bridge, and an EMG 89R dual-pickup at the neck, offering both humbucker and single coil pickup.

The EMG 89R pickup, offers a humbucker based on the EMG 89, but with reversed coils, and a single coil pickup. When switched to humbucker, the pickup produces a rich, warm, powerful tone that’s clear and articulate, and when in single coil mode the pickup produces a traditionally bright, airy tone that’s similar to the EMG SA.
