The XV-550 Series takes our XV-500 style body- Solid Mahogany, Carves two acoustic chambers, then we affix a THICK solid maple top with incredible quilt figuring and cut two F holes. The result is a super big sounding guitar with incredible sustain, and the liquid- tip-of-your-fingers controllability. We install a pair of our critically acclaimed Kwikplug Enabled GFS Crunchy Pat pickups for superior tone. We have PRE-INSTALLED a pair of coil tap switches so each humbucker can be used as a great sounding single coil. With both pickups in single coil mode they noise cancel! Want to experiment with our gigantic line of humbuckers? With the Kwikplug system pickup swaps take MINUTES! / The stunning quilted maple tops are real Maple, and we include premium appointments like heavy duty chrome bridge and tailpiece, full sized Alpha band potentiometers and smooth, 14:1 sealed tuning machines.
