This model is still in the development stage. Obvious hint to the LP, but with its own top carve and headstock design.

 

 

Somewhere along the way, innovation became tradition.

And sometimes tradition stands innovation in its way...

 

This guitar rids itself from all urban legends that surround its counterparts from the ancient world.

 

The benefits of this type of neck construction are so obvious that it is a mystery why not more luthiers are using it:

 

  • stronger neck (no more headstock breakage)
  • better tuning stability for tremolo's & bends
  • full access to highest frets
  • removable neck allows for other neck profiles and facilitates maintenance
  • distinctive, unique look
