A stunning exotic body top with beautiful natural binding on the top and side.
Our luthiers' insane attention to detail is evidenced by the Premium's hand-rolled fret edges. This slow, demanding process makes for a smooth, fast playing neck.
The stainless steel frets are known for their bright tone, and they add player-friendly features, such as long durability and a smoothness to bend on.
An 11-piece Wizard neck, which features a slim grip shape made of Wenge, Bubinga, Maple, and Purpleheart, contributes to the neck’s extreme rigidity and increases sustain.
The luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
The DiMarzio® PAF®7 pickups produce a sound that's both clean and open on the low notes and warm and rounded on the high ones.
The Tight End R bridge is perfectly designed to anchor with rigidness and accuracy.
The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
