Designed by Alan Entwistle, the new generation Rapier 33 is inspired by the iconic British guitar that helped launch the careers of many guitarists and British Beat groups in the 60's and 70's. Boasting sleek aesthetics with plenty of vintage mojo, the Rapier 33 is sure to inspire a new generation of players!
The Rapier 33 features an Akoume body from Central Africa, selected for its natural sonic characteristics, and the sleek "S" type body shape allows for easy access to the upper frets. The soft "C" shape Canadian Maple neck is extremely playable and is topped with a 12" radius Rosewood fingerboard, perfect for both rhythm and lead playing. Featuring 23 medium jumbo frets, including a zero-fret, the Rapier 33 is built for speed, comfort and accuracy.
True to the original design, the Rapier 33 features three pickups including the instantly recognisable forward slanted middle pickup. A trio of Entwistle Low Noise EWR64 mini-humbuckers offer exceptional tonal response, balanced output and clarity. With the ‘Bass Cut’ switch engaged, the Rapier 33 delivers that classic and much-loved 60’s jangle. The original Rhythm/Solo toggle switch has been rewired as a 3 way pickup selector and by utilising the second slide switch, you'll have seven pickup options on hand, making the Rapier 33 incredibly versatile.
The Rapier 33 features a high-spec roller bridge and original Rapier Hi Lo design smooth action vibrato bridge, perfectly delivering those iconic '60s warbles and flutters. A smooth, friction-free, precision cut 43mm GraphTech Nubone nut and Wilkinson machine heads ensure accurate intonation and solid tuning stability.
