A traditional laminated construction of maple with spruce parallel bracing keeps feedback to a minimum. The top is made from tulipwood and the back and sides, bookmatched flame maple. The hand carved neck is made from one piece of quarter sawn mahogany, creating a very stable neck with a great feel. The ebony fingerboard gives a slightly brighter response than rosewood and is extremely durable.
This guitar comes with a floating Gotoh tuneomatic bridge on an ebony base together with a handmade Case tailpiece from solid brass and etched with the Case logo. Grover deluxe tuners guarantee fine tuning and smooth operation. A 50’s wiring scheme is used to minimises treble loss when rolling back the volume.
A single Lollar 'Imperial' humbucker captures the airy top end, tight lows, balanced midrange, and complex overtones of the best original PAF pickups. In reviews it is consistently given high marks for its balanced frequency response. Unbalanced coils keep the bottom end tight for the amount of fullness the pickups have, overtones build after each note is played.
