Praetor

Steed Signature Series modellen

Primal Jag

The original Jag bridge design has a few anomalies that can catch out off-guard guitarists: the "wobble" bridge is hardly an example of tuning stability, and due to lower string tension (because of the 24" scale) strings are known to pop out of their saddles once in a while.

 

Not so with this set-up. Even when strumming hard the strings keep in place, and the Xtrem and roller bridge hold the business in tune.

Steed headstock

Based on the Centurio theme and inspired by the Fender Jaguar came this Praetor. It's basically a primal Jag, stripped of all frills, loaded with character.

 

Thus, the second tone circuit as found in Fender guitars is omitted - most guitarists lock the switch in one position anyway - and replaced by a very useful master series/parallel switch.

 

 

Instant power and growl !

 

The 1 MegOhm pots take care of the rest.
