Body
The contoured body features a dual humbucker setup mounted in a custom pickup plate, with discrete split coil switches and a 3-way pickup toggle for 8 different tone combinations! There is one master volume and one tone knob, allowing you to dial in tone that goes from dark and muddy to crisp and bright.  There is one 1/4" output jack on the top of the body for a standard guitar cable to plug into an amplifier.  On the back of the guitar, there is a large and accessible electronics cavity. 

Neck
The maple core neck is attached to the body using 4 screws.  The back of the neck contour is a C-shape that feels somewhere in between a strat and an LP neck, not too thin, and not too chunky either.  The 22-fret ebony fingerboard has medium jumbo frets which are leveled and milled here at our shop in California for a nice smooth feel along the edge of the fretboard.  The fretboard features a 12 inch radius which is perfect for soloing and playing chords up and down the fretboard.  Topping off the fretboard are dot inlays for finding your place along the guitar neck.  At the top of the neck, you'll find a bone nut for good sustain, and white binding all around the fingerboard for a clean look and feel.  The tilt-back 3+3 headstock shape is inspired by Cripe's headstock with some visual design changes.  Under the fretboard is the adjustable double-expanding truss rod, keeping the neck stable in any climate.
