XV-560 SOLID Maple Top Semi Hollowbody Alnico P90s
The Xaviere XV-560 is a unique blend of solid body and hollowbody. A solid mahogany body is routed to create a hollow interior. No wood is removed beneath the bridge and tailpiece for maximum sustain and resistance to feedback. A highly figured Quilt Maple top, housing a pair of famed GFS Alnico P90 Soapbar pickups. The classic P90 tone is in full effect here, from thundering lows to gutsy mids and glassy treble. The neck pickup is reverse wound for noise canceling in the middle position.
Each XV-560 features medium Jumbo nickel-Silver frets- leveled and dressed at the factory for great playability, and a long tenon glue-in neck. Paired with a good vacuum tube amp, the XV-560 is a supremely capable guitar.
The Mother-of-Pearl Xaviere logo nicely compliments the elegant Stairstep headstock. Chrome hardware and vintage amber bell knobs complete the classic look. We select our woods for quality, figuring and overall weight. Most XV-560's weigh in the 7 1/2-8 lb range.
