The Classic Antique Finish Over Finish Limited Edition was inspired by the sought after well-weathered paint jobs found on vintage instruments of an era gone by.
According to popular belief, there are two opinions of how these finishes actually originated. The first idea is that a solid color was applied to conceal a finish that was either damaged or flawed during the production process. The second is that since sunburst was standard on instruments made during that era, the factory would apply a secondary top coat to the original finish whenever a customer requested a custom color.
Each Classic Antique Finish Over Finish is accurately painted to recreate these unique finishes by applying a solid thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish over a 3-tone burst, and then carefully aged to expose the two distinct finishes.
Limited to only 200 instruments worldwide, the Classic Antique Finish Over Finish is available with a Rosewood fingerboard, in an H/S/S or S/S/S pickup configuration, and five nitrocellulose lacquer finishes; Black, Candy Apple Red, Fiesta Orange, Olympic White and Surf Green.
The Classic Antique Finish Over Finish features a Maple neck an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck is tinted and finished in nitro-cellulose lacquer, giving it an authentic vintage look and feel.
The unique blend of locking tuners, a high performance bridge, and our proprietary SSCII noise reduction system creates the perfect combination of vintage tones with modern performance.
Alder is one of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960’s and is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows.
Finished in an extremely thin nitro-cellulose lacquer that features natural checking and light aging.
The SSCII is our proprietary silent single coil system. The SSCII is installed inside the body of the guitar and works with traditional single coil pickups. It reduces 60 cycle hum and has no impact on tone, no batteries to change – just transparent noise reduction.
The Gotoh 510 tremolo bridge features dual steel knife edge pivot points to provide greater functionality and years of trouble free performance. The 510’s steel block increases sustain and tuning stability.
Available in two configurations: SSS with ML single coil pickups, or HSS with an SSV humbucker in the bridge position.The ML (Mike Landau) Standard single-coil pickup is overwound for more output and sustain and features our proprietary modified staggered pole piece design to provide an even magnetic field.
Equipped with staggered Suhr Locking Tuners, which provide an 18:1 gear ratio, improved tuning stability, and no need for a traditional string tree.
