Our SS3 models feature the classic S-style body with belly and forearm comfort curves carved out. The body is a figured natural Ambrosia Maple which has unique discolorations and patterns, no two are the same. The guitar pictured here is only a sample and is NOT the exact one you would be getting, but it would be very similar. Ambrosia Maple is a heavier wood, not as much as regular maple but expect this guitar to weigh more than an alder body guitar. The maple neck is a Somnium spec with 24 frets and a slim C profile with 12 inch radius. It is available with either a Rosewood or Maple fretboard.
Our modular pickup system is the ultimate in versatility letting you change pickups instantly in any combinations you want. Switch your 3-single-coil configuration to a 2-pickup T-style, or dual humbuckers, or just one humbucker, anything you want. Use any pickups you want, active or passive, mix and match to find new and exciting tone combinations. We include two of our machined aluminum cartridges, a full-size with great Kent Armstrong single-coil pickups and one empty humbucker cartridge for whatever standard PAF-sized humubucker you might want.
