Slim "C"-Shaped Neck Profile

This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a slim "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish – ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.

12" Fingerboard Radius
12" Fingerboard Radius

This instrument features a 12” fingerboard radius—a very slight curvature that’s flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius and even a modern 9.5” radius. This fingerboard radius allows for low action and is especially well suited to bending notes and soloing.
