The mahogany neck, glued with Hide-Glue and Long Tenon, promises optimal playing characteristics with its pleasantly strong “’50s Rounded Medium C” profile up to the 22nd fret of the rosewood fingerboard, in which the historically documented Dot Inlays naturally mark the positions.

Custombucker pickups

Thanks to Alnico III magnets and non-waxed coils, the humbuckers follow in the footsteps of the legendary PAF pickups and deliver a particularly airy sound that is characterized by the resonance-friendly character of the Semi Hollow construction and is ideally suited to the classic styles of blues, rock and jazz. A hand-wired circuit with historically correct oil paper capacitors guarantees optimum adaptability of the sound image with smooth Treble roll-offs.
