Boasting exceptional tones, sturdy build quality and eye-catching adornments it is a guitar that players of all skill levels will adore.
True Hollowbody Design
The true hollowbody design of the AFV75 allows it to generate incredible energy, which the all-linden construction laps up with glee. The fullness of character is breath-taking, and the rich timbre is projected with the utmost clarity. The linden body creates a sonic powerhouse with tonnes of mid-range clout for a snappy attack with a great deal of depth. The lows are gentle and the linden tonewood yields a snappy upper range. The distressed look of the Vintage Amber Burst low gloss finish steals all attention, creating that "lived-in" look that guitarists seek out in vintage models.
Solid Nyatoh Set Neck
The solid nyatoh set-in neck creates a feeling of reliable sturdiness, whilst the Artcore profile makes it a joy to run your playing hand along with minimum effort. The nyatoh resonates sweetly, and thanks to the set-in construction, transfers the energy of the strings efficiently. The bound laurel fingerboard is home to 20 medium-sized frets, which are bound to aid in seamless transitions between frets. Acrylic block position inlays guide your way in style.
Classic Elite pickups
The AFV75 is equipped with a pair of Classic Elite humbuckers, which are fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The pickup combination can be applied to a wide variety of musical styles, from rockabilly to jazz - and everything in-between. Control comes in the form of a 3-way pickup selector switch and separate Sure Grip volume and tone knobs for the bridge and neck pickups. From thick and creamy tones produced by the neck pickups to the direct and punchy mids of the bridge, or a combination of both, you are equipped to hit the stage or the studio with a huge tonal arsenal.
String and tuning integrity is supported by the ART1 bridge and VT60 tailpiece, reinforcing the strings' connection to the body to optimise intonation and sustain. The antique chrome hardware is in keeping with this guitars vintage aesthetic.
