    HSS PICKUP CONFIGURATION
    HSS PICKUP CONFIGURATION

    For a dose of hot vintage-sounding tone, a rich-sounding Twin Head Vintage humbucking pickup is situated at the bridge, for high-octane tone with plenty of output and sustain. Plus, the Vintage Noiseless neck and middle pickups produce all the brilliantly pristine, well-defined tone of vintage single-coil Strat pickups, with no hum.

    12" FINGERBOARD RADIUS
    12" FINGERBOARD RADIUS

    This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12", is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature—great for bending notes without fretting out.

    TWO-POINT TREMOLO BRIDGE WITH VINTAGE-STYLE SADDLES
    TWO-POINT TREMOLO BRIDGE WITH VINTAGE-STYLE SADDLES
