JV Carved top
The construction of premium grade carved maple top on a chambered mahogany body gives this guitar plenty of natural sustain and a wonderful resonance. The neck is beautifully hand carved from one piece of quarter sawn mahogany and has a thicker 50s profile, creating a very stable neck with a great feel. The ebony fingerboard gives a slightly brighter response than rosewood and is extremely durable.
All hardware is high quality, chrome plated and made in the US. The lightweight Hipshot Baby Grand bridge/stop bar is fully adjustable. Sperzel tuners guarantee fine tuning and smooth operation. The guitar is fitted with high quality CTS pots, Switchcraft toggle switch and a pull/push tone pot for coil splitting. A 50’s wiring scheme is used to minimises treble loss when rolling back the volume.
The calibrated set of Bare Knuckle ‘Stormy Monday’ humbuckers are sweet and articulate with warm bass, hollow mids and smooth high end that is extremely clear and dynamic. The coils of each pickup can be split by means of a push/pull switch on the tone control, to further broaden the palette.
