Featuring a sleek, extremely playable finish, and a truly ergonomic C-shaped neck.

Vintage vibrato magic
Go wild. The Vibe Roller bridge system is a bespoke design which utilises a bearing under each string. This allows the string to move frictionlessly over the bridge when using the tremolo, ensuring much better tuning stability that traditional vibrato systems.
Traditional and authentic. It's time to enhance your tone and experience an instrument that offers pro-quality features that belie the price tag. This Hartwood's meticulous design means the Fifty6 Vibrato comes equipped with two humbucking pickups which can - at the pull of the tone knob - engage true single coil sound. With this broad tonal pallet, the Fifty6 will give metal players more powerful rhythm tones, while jazz players can tap into warm clean lead lines, and all in one gorgeous package.
A true rock god...
You know it sounds great. You know it feels fantastic. But this legend isn't all just playability and tone. It combines modern performance-ready features with a meticulous design, and vintage style too. Featuring a thermally treated maple fingerboard which improved durability and resistance to temperature and humidity change, as well as being more environmentally conscious. While a bone nut adds extra vintage tonal authenticity, it also self lubricates. This in conjunction with the locking tuners ensures the Fifty6's already stable Vibe-Roller vibrato isn't hampered at the other end of the string.
With a stunning flamed maple top, and our unique 'Pickle' finish, pearloid inlays, vintage white binding, and a classic double-cutaway body - your look is as timeless as your sound. A vintage-styled electric with a whole load of attitude to offer. Don't spend forever wishing you did, test-drive the Fifty6 Vibrato. You won't look back.
