Spread your influence
Groundbreaking. Fishman Fluence pickups provide a universe of tones for you to play with. Renowned for having multiple voices – including active and passive – they'll bring your licks to life with their supreme articulation and powerful technology. Using push-pull pots, you can switch between humbucker and single coil sounds, giving you total versatility in your tone.
With the active voicing, you'll get that super high output, aggressive sound which is as crystal clear as it is tight. Cleans will be bright and defined, whilst high gain settings will roar thunderously with savage bite. The passive voicing offers its own unique tone, giving riffs that classic, dynamic well-rounded voice which powers through the mix. Both rhythm and lead licks will have everything they need to truly shine – you're in for a treat.
The perfect tools. A 5-piece maple and purpleheart neck gives you a supremely slick playing experience, letting you move around the fretboard with minimal resistance. It also has a strong, punchy resonance, which helps to make your riffs even more impactful. And then there's the smooth, sleek macassar ebony fretboard, which is insanely satisfying to play. Your fingers will sail down its surface, and you'll be able to shred to your heart's content. What's more, the comfortable cutaway body shape allows easy access to the upper frets, so you can be totally free with your playing.
Studio or stage - it'll hold up. The quality hardware on this machine keeps it truly playable. A hardtail bridge offers reliable tuning stability – you'll always sound your best. And it has a strings-thru-body design, which helps to maximise resonance and sustain. Diecast tuners keep your strings in place, as well as helping you tune up quickly. The sturdy mahogany body offers a warm, well balanced resonance, and it's combined with an ash top for a stunning aesthetic. With all of its exceptional features, this is a guitar which will push your playing to new heights.
