An ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic with Aluminium Stopbar continues the theme of old school ancestry, working in conjunction with the Vintage Deluxe tuning machines to ensure the strings stay in tune, even when doing two-tone bends. Keystone Button tuning heads complement the classic aesthetic alongside the Amber Top Hat controls with Pointers.
