A great tribute to the classic "Custom"- DOUBLE bound- sweet vintage binding top and back- This is a lightweight SOLID ALDER body...Sweet Vintage Styling, Quality components, Hand picked woods, hand dressed frets, hand cut "NuBone" GRAPHITE! Heck we already upgraded the HELL out of this thing!
The XV-840 takes the classic single cutaway guitar to a whole new level of quality and value. NEVER has there been a guitar at this price with this level of playability, hand craftsmanship and amplified tone.
We hand pick only the driest, lightest Alder. No glue-hogs for us- only 3 piece bodies, finished in super hard, super thin, super light Catalyzed Urethane, hand buffed to a deafening gloss. PLEASE don't compare these to other sub $200 guitars- compare them to the BEST out there.
We've installed only the best- Our own steel vintage baseplate with chrome SOLID BRASS saddles, a FULL RETAIL GFS Fat TC Alnico pickup in the bridge and the matching Classic TC Alnico at the neck. The neck pickup is RW/RP so the middle position is noise canceling.
We strongly recommend you ship this guitar in a hard case- and we're offering $10 off ANY case when ordered at the same time as the guitar.
