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.
Vintage vibrato magic
Go wild. There's a Viber-Roller Tune-O-Matic bridge complete with Vintage Vibrato installed in this well-equipped guitar. You'll be able to add as much wide vibrato to chords and riffs as you like, adding that extra special touch to your tunes. And chrome locking tuners help to keep your strings firmly in place, massively enhancing tuning stability. This is a guitar which you can rely on, day in, day out.
