*Factory second. This instrument is brand new from the factory in the original packaging as a “factory second”. It may have some cosmetic blemishes which is why it is a factory second. Much of the time the blemishes are not noticeable or have been fixed to be almost invisible at the factory. Other times, it may be obvious. We always try to highlight any blemishes we find with photos and a description below. NOTE: Factory Seconds do not come with a warranty.

**This guitar has a very minor discoloration along the back plate where it appears they tried to touch up the finish. It is difficult to photograph. It also has a little bit of gunk on the neck. It’ll probably come right off with a little cleaning effort. See photos. As a factory second, we always try to highlight any visible defects in photos.

***We inspect for the factory second defects and test each instrument upon receiving them to ensure that they are playable. We do not set up instruments here as we do not have the ability to set up your playing style and preferences.

Features

Wizard C 3pc Roasted Maple/Bubinga neck

To meet the demand of various playing styles, this Wizard C neck has a very neutral shape – it’s not too thick, too thin, or too flat. The 3pc Roasted Maple/Bubinga construction also offers great stability and long-term durability.

Nyatoh body

Nyatoh used as the body wood provides a rich mid-low end.

R1 / Q58 S-S-H pickups

The R1 / Q58 pickup combo is designed specifically for use in headless guitars. They provide a clearly defined sound, facilitating excellent tonal balance through all frequencies. The lows are powerful without being muddy, and the highs are bright and clear, but never harsh. As a result, every single note within the chord structure is well defined, and clearly audible. These pickups, with their tonal balance, and extremely low noise performance, work extremely well with both digital and analog effects.

Custom string lock

This custom string lock is one-piece unit that features very simple construction. This means the hardware requires less maintenance, is highly durable, and allows for very easy string changes. Additionally, no proprietary string is required, so you can continue to use your favorite gauge and brand.

Mono-Tune bridges

The Mono-Tune bridges offer a wide intonation range so that you can easily set the instrument up for tuning down a whole step or even further. The string height is also easily adjustable, and each saddle generally has less material, which leads to more natural and organic tone.

dyna-MIX9 switching system with Alter Switch

The dyna-MIX 9 offers nine sound variations and can switch between humbucker and single coil modes with just a flick of the mini switch. One mode even simulates a humbucking sound from the combination of two single coil pickups.

Roasted Birdseye Maple fretboard

The beautiful Birdseye Maple fretboard imbues this model with an exotic appearance . The fretboard is heat-treated for a balanced attack and rich sustain.

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.

Ergonomic body design

The body features a number of strategically placed curves on both the top and back of the instrument. This complex, yet sophisticated design provides maximum playing comfort.

Compact and light-weight, yet resonant body

While it is really compact and light-weight, its non-chambered, solid body provides great sound with rich woody tones.

Luminescent side dot inlays

The luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
