Centurio

Steed Signature Series modellen

The Centurio is pretty much the flagship of the range.

 

The idea was to do something "Gretsch-y" with an offset solid body. Thus first came this prototype built out of "leftovers".

 

Honey burst nitro-cellulose
Double-action truss rod install

After extensive testing and modifying

 

2 versions were built for demonstration:

 

Roller bridge with Filtertrons
Bigsby B5 with Filtertrons on natural body

Oil finished wood will not only get a beautiful glow, it also feels very comfortable to touch.
