Madison 060610

The neck of this instrument is 1 piece of quarter sawn Zebrawood with tight grain patterns resulting in a very hard and durable neck. The neck is also supported by a dual action truss rod and 2 carbon fiber stabilization rods. The fret board is crafted of Gabon Ebony and has abalone dot inlays, 22 jumbo frets, and white plastic side dot markers. The veneers on the front and back of the head stock are made of Zebrawood and match the body in figure and color. The nut is made of a Graphtech blank and is 1 5/8 inches wide. The neck is 2.25 inches at the 22nd fret and the scale is 25.5 inches. The neck feels slim and fast with only a light finish of polyurethane.

The body of this guitar is made of Black Walnut which has had some minor chambering to reduce weight (the guitar is 8.8 pounds, beefy like the perfect steak) and is topped with ½ inch of Zebrawood. This wood is very dense and will take much abuse. Because of the weight and choice of woods this guitar has a nice focused, punchy tone and sounds awesome in the hands of a seasoned blues player or ballsy rock musician. Forearm and belly cuts are carved to add comfort. A thin but durable satin poly finish protechs the wood from wear and tear.

The hardware is handsomely chrome plated tuners, bridge, and pickup rings along with large strap buttons for your worn out strap. Ebony truss cover and control knobs rounds out the hardware.

The pickups are 2 Seymour Duncan STK-S4 single coils stacks, tuned for the Neck and Mid positions, and a JB humbucker for the bridge. A 5 way switch gives you a pallet of tone choices. The Volume and Tone pots are very responsive according to people who have tested this guitar.
This guitar was recently updated with a Drake logo inlay to her headstock (does not appear in the photos).
