This solid-body Vision is a sleek double-cutaway beauty! Made in the USA with a premium alder or ambrosia maple body (pictured) and hard maple neck, it features our patent-pending ToneStorm hot-swap pickup system which allows you to change out any pickup, anytime simply by snapping cartridges in and out. You can order this guitar in several different colors with either a hard tail (fixed bridge) or with a Kahler USA tremolo (pictured) and your choice of pickup combinations.
An amazing and exclusive feature of this model is the R66 variable-gain active pickup. You will notice that one of the control knobs on the guitar is a different color. This is a variable-gain control for our exclusive R66 pickup with an on-board voltage-controlled amplifier (circuit board underneath the pickup). This hexaphonic pickup has amazing gain and clarity, allowing you to go from powerful clean tone to hard dirty overdrive on a clean channel. Each string gets boosted individually and then blended together at output for phenomenal clarity. There is nothing else like this, check out our R66 page for more detail.
We proudly feature EMG USA pickups as our standard offering with two pickups mounted in a full-size cartridge as the default configuration. We've picked our favorites from the active and passive categories and you can choose combinations from the following:
- Passive single coil models S4 and S3
- Passive humbucker models H4 and H4A
- Active humbucker models 81 and 85

If you want to be able to hot-swap each pickup separately we have half-size cartridges for just that purpose. You can also order it with empty cartridges for installing your own favorite pickups (No Pickups option), just let us know whether you need single-coil or humbucker openings.
