Oval C Roasted Maple neck
Heat-treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes.
Roasted Maple fretboard
Heat-treatment provides a well-balanced attack and tone and a rich sustain. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve.
Jumbo Stainless Steel frets
Stainless steel frets boast excellent corrosion resistance. The wide and tall fret-type offers a quick response and effortless articulation when playing chords and clear tone when playing single notes.

Seymour Duncan® Hyperion™ S-S-H pickups
