Iconic's Vintage Modern S-HR model is a hot-rodded take on the archetypal s-type guitar! Retaining the classic body shape, the Vintage Modern comes supercharged with a raft of modern features that promise to provide you with the ultimate playing and sonic experience. This includes a thin "C"-shaped roasted Maple neck, compound radius fingerboard, high-output Arcane "13" humbuckers and a super-smooth Gotoh 510 tremolo.
- 2-Piece 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.
- Thin "C" Neck Profile — Slim, addictive shape lets you play blazing riffs and leads without hindrance!
- 10-14” Compound Radius Fingerboard — Rounded at the lower end of the neck to make chords easier to fret, this radius flattens out the higher you go; making fast passages much easier to play.
- Arcane "13" Pickups — High-output humbuckers that harness vintage and modern tones. Over-wound with an increased DC resistance, and their powerful alnico 8 magnets are designed to hit your amp hard!
- Push/Push Tone Knobs — Allow you to coil-split the humbuckers and attain spanky single-coil sounds.
- Gotoh 510 Tremolo — Superbly-machined, 2-point bridge offers a responsive vibrato action and ensures precise return to pitch after heavy use.
- Iconic Locking Tuners — Locking design secures strings to makes changes fast and hassle-free, with less wraps required around the tuning posts; enhancing tuning stability.
- 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.
