If you like a full-size body but with perfect balance and light weight, our headless Prodigy model is is for you! With an alder body, low-profile lightweight Hipshot USA bridge and maple headless neck, the balance is fantastic and total weight comes in at just over 6 pounds. This makes it super comfortable to play and as always our ToneStorm system lets you change out any pickup, anytime simply by snapping our patented cartridges in and out.
This particular model features our exclusive R66 active pickup with variable gain. It has a separate pair of coils for each string for phenomenal clarity, and the on-board gain circuit allows you to boost its gain for overdrive, even on a clean channel. This guitar has a third knob specifically for that R66 pickup gain boost.
The second pickup is an EMG USA H4 passive model so you get a variety of active, passive or combination tones. Versatility is unlimited with our ToneStorm cartridges which let you switch out and combine any number of active or passive pickups. You can add extra cartridges from our Accessories category for any number of pickup configurations.
A special feature of this model is the iridescent blue paint which shifts from blue to greenish-blue to purple to dark purple depending on what angle you view it at. It really makes the guitar pop because the beveled edges of the Prodigy body create continually contrasting colors which adds a depth you just can't get with standard paints.
This Prodigy model also features:
- 24 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets, 25.5" scale
- 1-11/16" nut width, Epiphone spacing
- 9V battery holder for active pickups
- Dunlop USA Straploks
We can build this model in a variety of standard colors as well, with Rosewood, Pau Ferro or Ebony fretboards, just let us know what you want. Somnium guitars DO NOT include a case, so please be sure to select one if you need it.
