Slim Taper Neck
Joined to the double-cutaway body is a Slim Taper profile Mahogany neck. Working in conjunction with the body the neck allows bends to ring out, fast legato to come with ease and riffing aplenty. The Indian Laurel fretboard is smooth and comfortable under your fingers, with 22 frets marked by Trapezoid inlays to mark your way.

The bridge pickup excels in the midrange whilst the neck gives plenty of body, with detailed low end and a bit of percussive treble tone. CTS Electronics ensure that vintage tone abounds here, with a three-way pickup selector plus two volume and tone knobs giving you plenty of scope for sonic sculpting.
