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® Air Norton™, True Velvet™ and Tone Zone® pickups offer depth, warmth and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch.
The Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge w/ZPS3Fe provides exceptional tuning stability, precise intonation adjustment, and playing comfort.
The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
