Strings: Gcea (low G) GHS flat wound custom set: .032, .022, .016, .012. Want high G tuning? Just let us know, no problem.
Electronics: The controls are standard volume and tone. The Alnico 5 magnet hand wound, custom designed pickup has 6500 turns (per coil) of 42 gauge copper wire and has a resistance of about 7 ohms. This gives the pickup a warm, organic tone that reacts nicely to picking nuance. All the bridge saddles are properly grounded to provide the quietest operation possible.
This pickup is wired for “coil splitting”. To access this feature, simply pull out on the tone knob and it will engage a switch that deactivates half of the pickup providing a much more “single coil” tone.
Truss Rod: Two way adjustable truss rod.
Fretboard Radius: 12″
Bridge: We use individual string saddles to allow for optimum string spacing for the best feel and performance. The bridge saddles have individually adjustable intonation screws as well as standard height adjustment.
Nut: The nut is hand carved out of bone.
Tuners: 18:1 ratio geared tuners.
This model comes with 2 strap buttons installed and is ready to rock!
