You can't beat them. Chrome-covered humbuckers deliver waves of rich, punchy tone to your ears, giving you a sublime, scintillating sound to work with. Whether you’re playing with mountains of gain or none at all, they’ll sound clear, defined, and articulate – they sound exceptional for anything from rockabilly and blues to rock and indie. The bridge pickup is especially tight and punchy – perfect for letting your riffs and chords cut through the mix. And the neck pickup is smooth and beefy – it'll make your solos soar. With these pickups at your back, you'll be able to make your music truly shine.
Fly along the fretboard. This guitar has been crafted with exacting attention to detail, with a smooth, 'C' shaped maple neck offering superb playability. You'll find that it naturally fits the shape of your hand, and complements any style of playing. Being a set neck, it also offers easy access to the upper frets, so you can liberate your solos. Then there's the thermally treated maple ply fretboard, which boosts the brightness of this instrument, whilst also providing a lusciously smooth surface for you to write and play riffs on. Armed with these quality tools, nothing will stop you from playing in your own style.
Play with confidence. The array of high-quality hardware adorning this guitar gives it total reliability. Chrome locking tuners keep your strings locked in place, massively enhancing tuning stability. The Tune-O-Matic bridge complete with a stoptail also boosts tuning stability, as well as maximising the sustain of the Hartwood Speedway. And there's a beautiful white pearloid scratchplate, which not only looks stunning, but protects the luscious finish from scratches. You'll get a lifetime of satisfaction from this expertly designed-instrument.
