Pickups for pros. The pickups which have been carefully selected for this model will take your ears on a sonic journey. A Direct Mount Wolfgang humbucker in the bridge position has tonnes of quality locked inside its coiled wires. Being a humbucker, it offers plenty of powerful output, whilst making each note you play sound full and articulate. When using a lot of gain, each note you play will have plenty of attack, aggression, and saturated crunch, whilst cleaner settings will sound clear and bright.
The neck pickup - a Direct Mount Wolfgang AL3 humbucker - will give you a lifetime of satisfaction when you're playing lead. Whether you're shredding like lightning or playing slowly and with feel, each note will be sharply defined and have a luscious, well balanced tone which will shoot straight through to your heart like an arrow. With these top class magnets pumping out divine tone, you'll be equipped to conquer any stage or song with complete confidence.
Pure velocity. With the quartersawn maple neck of the Wolfgang sat comfortably in your hands, you'll feel liberated as your thumb sails down the neck unrestricted. The hand-rubbed urethane finish makes it especially smooth and satisfying, and you'll be able to access every note on the neck incredibly fast. It also adds a touch of brightness to your guitar's tone, so you're sure to find that it brings out the best in your playing and sound.
It means business. Being made from ebony, the fretboard is a high end specimen which offers you untold playing satisfaction. It will feel sleek and satisfying under your fingers, as well as producing a powerful tonal response when it vibrates. Having a bright resonance, ebony can complement higher gain settings, and it also offers plenty of sustain for a solid playing experience. As such, you won't look back once you've started playing this prime musical instrument.
