NEW DOUBLE ACTION TRUSS ROD ADJUSTMENT WHEEL

The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

S-1™ SWITCH
S-1™ SWITCH

The S-1 switch activates alternate wiring options for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.

PASSING LANE SWITCH
PASSING LANE SWITCH

The Passing Lane switch kicks your sound into overdrive, rerouting the bridge pickup and bypassing the tone circuit for hotter output with enhanced overtones, blowing the doors off your sound. Discretely located between the tone controls, the low-profile push-push switch is easy to activate while resisting accidental triggering.
