Bridging the gap between old school glamour and contemporary feel, the hot-rodded Iconic Guitars Vintage Modern S-HR cuts a wildly unique figure in the sea of S-type guitars. Just look at this beauty! It's made of best-in-class premium Alder and flamed Maple woods, with the body then topped in a special flaked finish. Powering the sound of the S-HR are in-house wound Revolution pickups in a highly-versatile HSS configuration.
- Alder Body — Timeless tonewood choice synonymous with bolt-on electric guitars. Provides a balanced tonal foundation for the pickups, with tight lows, bold mids and singing highs.
- Roasted Flamed Maple Neck — Roasting process removes all of the natural moisture retained by the neck wood, ultimately darkening the material and making it far less vulnerable to warping when exposed to varying climates.
- Medium "C" Neck Profile — Contemporary shape lets you play blazing riffs and leads without hindrance!
- Iconic Revolution Pickups — Project sizzling high-output tones, perfect for '80s metal and modern rock genres! Versatile HSS configuration gives you access to a wide palette of sounds.
- Callaham Tremolo — Superbly-machined bridge offers an extremely smooth, frictionless return to pitch after heavy use.
- Bone Nut — Classic, low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips and enhances sustain.
- Handcrafted in the USA — Built in California for the most discerning of musicians, promising "unparalleled tone and unsurpassed quality" in the company's own words.
