Body & Neck
Alder is the wood of choice for the body; lightweight and medium-density, it'll ensure a comfortable playing experience and a rich mid-range emphasis. The neck is made from roasted maple, adding a bright, snappy quality to your tone! They've also armed this AZ model with a 24-fret 25.5" scale-length, so you've got the full double-octave range to explore!
Electronics & Hardware
Top-class Gotoh machine heads and tremolo bridge ensure excellent tuning stability and consistent intonation. The hardware is an understated mixture of chrome and black, a tip of the hat to high-speed S-type guitars of old.
It's also dual-loaded with Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbuckers, ensuring a full-bodied, rich response that perfectly compliments the resonant alder body. The unique Dyna-MIX9 switching system provides you with a vast tonal palette - this guitar really can do it all!
