This guitar was built for Eric Stets of Stets Machine, the mind behind the Stetsbar tremolo, which in my opinion is the best trem on the market. The instrument features a Cocobolo neck with a cool inlay on the 12th for all you Harley-Davidson fans out there. The body is mahogany with a tiger maple top. This provides a good classic tone with the extra clarity and sustain of the cocobolo. The harmonics are rich and full, a characteristic of my neck design, and the chords lush and articulate. The neck is a fast one with the smooth unfinished wood and the full access neck heel that allows for full access all the way up the neck. The Fralin humbuckers are awesome clean and dirty and the custom 5-way switching offers 5 coil settings in either series or parallel modes for a total of 10 distinct tones. Along with this the tone control utilizes a superior sounding copper foil, paper in oil capacitor. These are musically transparent capacitors and are well worth the extra cost. The stain is a tiger's eye with a slight dye burst and then finished with nitrocellulose lacquer. This guitar is a great player and it sounds incredible. Cocobolo necks are still my favorites for a good, clear rock guitar that is excellent for crunch tones. Clean tones can get very jazzy as well for a varied tonal palette. This guitar has it all!
