Our latest and most advanced Vision is a sleek double-cutaway beauty! With an alder body and maple neck, it features our patented ToneStorm hot-swap system with machined aluminum pickup cartridges. This allows you to change out any pickup, anytime simply by snapping a cartridge in or out, with any make or model pickup, active or passive. One guitar, infinite possibilities.
An amazing and exclusive feature of this model is the R66 variable-gain active humbucking pickup. This baby is hexaphonic which means that each string has its own pair of coils for unparalleled clarity and definition. An on-board amplifier (which you control with our third knob) lets you go from a powerful clean tone to a hard dirty overdrive, and that's on a clean channel! Use it to pump up your amp's own distortion to new levels, or to push your guitar to the front when soloing. These are capabilities other pickups simply can't match.
The second pickup is an EMG USA passive H4, a great option for many different genres of music. Of course you aren't limited to just the two pickups included here, you can buy more cartridges loaded with any other pickups that you like.
You're going to love the premium hardware from Hipshot USA including their hi-mass solid brass contoured bridge, and locking tuners with aluminum knurled industrial knobs. For great sustain and buttery-smooth tuning, these are truly top-of-the-line.
