PAUL SLATER - GUITAR BUYER MAGAZINE

JV Semi-HOLLOW ARCHTOP

The construction of a laminated maple arch top combined with a chambered mahogany body and a spruce fillet between the two gives this guitar beautiful woody resonance with minimal feedback. There is a choice of either flame or quilted maple for the bookmatched arched top, which is carefully applied and finished to create a stunning and unique appearance. The neck is beautifully hand carved from one piece of quarter sawn mahogany, creating a very stable neck with a great feel. The fingerboard is expertly inlayed with Mother of pearl 'Wave' markers with a choice of either rosewood for it's warm tone, or ebony for it's slightly brighter response.  

All hardware is high quality, chrome plated and made in the US. The lightweight Hipshot Baby Grand bridge/stop bar comes as standard and is fully adjustable. Sperzel Solid-Pro tuners or Grover deluxe tuners can be specified both guaranteeing fine tuning and smooth operation. The guitar is fitted with high quality US made CTS pots, Switchcraft toggle switch and a pull/push tone pot for coil splitting. A 50’s wiring scheme is used in all our guitars as we have found that it minimises treble loss when rolling back the volume. 

Bare Knuckle scatter wound pickups are fitted as standard with the 'Rebel Yell' humbucker set chosen for its organic voice and impact; perfect for any player wanting a progressive humbucker which is rich in harmonic overtones and wide pick dynamics.
