Body & Neck
A Mahogany body and Maple neck kick off the tonewood menu. This provides plenty of weighty resonance and that famed Mahogany sustain, perfect for lead playing and chunky riffage alike. The Maple neck gives the top-end an extra sheen.
An Ebony fretboard helps to smooth the whole thing over, accentuating the bright attack of the Maple while taming the midrange – perfect for rock and metal playing.
Hardware & Electronics
The Ceramic magnets of the EMG Retro Active pickups offer high output sounds but retain classic dynamics. Think Van Halen in the late ‘70s – shimmering and powerful, but not oversaturated.
A 3-way switch and two volume controls keeps the setup simple – not too much, not too little, so you can focus on melting faces. Black hardware all-round finishes off the aesthetics with a brilliant contrast that’s bound to turn heads.
