    Product Description

    The Kauer Super Chief is a spellbinding semi-hollow electric guitar that just oozes with retro charm and finesse. There's plenty of "hot rod" flair here too, with the Super Chief's glittering Amethyst Purple Flake paint-scheme and curvy silver scratchplate giving it a striking aesthetic that's sure to sparkle beautifully on-stage!

    Tasteful binding around the instrument's body and neck enhances the elegant vibe, while a silky-smooth Wenge fingerboard offers an addictive playing feel. TonePros hardware, Sperzel locking tuners, Wolfetone pickups and high-quality Emerson Custom pots will surely appeal to performance-hungry players who seek only the very best in reliability and tone.

    Key Features

    • Semi-Hollow Body — Maple top/back, 15.5" wide and featuring Kauer's 'I Beam' internal construction, with a Spanish Mahogany core and neck. Yields a huge, airy sound that's clear, punchy and rich with sustain.
    • "C"-Shaped Neck Profile — Comfortable profile provides a supportive feel that'll strongly appeal to traditionalists and contemporary players alike.
    • 24" Scale Length — Gives the strings a relatively loose and "slinky" feel, allowing you to perform bends with ease for ultimate playing freedom.
    • Wenge Fingerboard — Adds warmth into the tonal mix, with gorgeous wood grain exerting a truly mesmerising look.
    • Precise 'Plek' Process — Kauer uses an in-house Plek machine to carefully analyse their instruments' fingerboards and makes fine adjustments to the frets to ensure optimal playability.
    • Wolfetone Kauer'Bucker Pickups — Wired in Washington, these humbuckers deliver medium output with lots of clarity; well-suited for expressive players.
    • TonePros Hardware — Superbly-machined tune-o-matic bridge and stop-tailpiece makes it easy to make setup adjustments, with large mounting posts maximising string vibration transference through the body for exceptional resonance.
    • Sperzel Open-Back Locking Tuners — Locking design secures strings to makes changes fast and hassle-free, with less wraps required around the tuning posts; enhancing tuning stability.
