Product Description

The Woodford Pioneer is an exquisite S-style guitar designed exclusively by PJD Guitars for Andertons. Boasting a Swamp Ash body and roasted Maple neck, the Woodford Pioneer is dressed to the nines, beautifully contoured and effortless to play!

The body is finished in a cracked-lacquer gloss nitrocellulose lacquer which allows the wood to breath and age nicely over time, while the neck features an oil/wax finish for super-smooth playability. A set of hand-wound Dr Wallace Cream T Pickups puts an array of humbucker and single-coil options at your fingertips for complete tonal versatility, across any playing style and genre. Other premium appointments include a Wudtone tremolo and Gotoh tuners. A rugged PJD hard case is also included for top-notch protection.

Key Features

  • Swamp Ash Body— Traditional Tonewood with that yields a warm, balanced sound.
  • Bolt-On Construction— Produces a snappy note response for an immediate playing experience.
  • Roasted Maple Neck— Roasting process crystallises resins and removes all of the natural moisture retained by the neck wood, ultimately darkening the material and adding stability for rock-solid tuning!
  • "C"-Shaped Neck— Custom profile provides comfortable playability, suitable for both traditional and contemporary players. The silky-smooth oil/wax finish won't ever slow you down either!
  • 10-12" Compound Radius Fingerboard— Rounded at the lower end of the neck to make chords easier to fret, this radius subtly flattens out the higher you go; making fast passages feel easier to play.
  • Jescar 55090 Frets— Narrow tall fret-wire offers a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
  • Dr Wallace Cream T Pickups— Boutique-style pickups, hand-wound in Liverpool, UK!
  • CTS Potentiometers— Enable smooth control over pickup volume and overall tone.
  • Wudtone Bridge- A high-mass tremolo that maximisies the transference of sound energy to the pickups and through the guitar's body.
  • Gotoh Staggered Post Vintage Tuners— Provide great stability whilst maintaining a cool, vintage aesthetic.
  • Bone Nut— Low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips and enhances sustain.
  • Included Hard Case— High-quality, PJD-branded case protects the instrument against knocks on the road.
