This stunning electric guitar, which sports a single Florentine cutaway, is built with the highest quality in mind. It has a highly figured Brazilian mahogany body with a beautifully carved birseye maple top and a highly figured quilted maple back. Its Indian rosewood neck, blood wood fingerboard and white pearloid pick guard provide a striking contrast to its vintage amber stained body and enhance its natural beauty. It is fitted with a Seymour Duncan STR-1 single-coil pickup in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan 'Hot Rails' mini-humbucker pickup in the bridge position. This pickup configuration, together with the choice of wood used in its construction, produce warm, fat and powerful vintage tones with maximum sustain.

This is truly a high class instrument in every sense.

Come! See and hear this Red Hot Blues/Rock Powerhouse at the 2012 Montreal Guitar Show.
