The guitar features EMG SA and 81 pickups, a Floyd Rose License tremolo, MEC electronics and potentiometers, illuminating side dots, and the brand’s own Invisible Fret Technology. The guitar will be available in four finishes: Cream White high polish, Black high polish, Solid Satin Black, Silver Metallic.
