What We Think

Weight 7.7 Lbs

Hoo-boy! If this one doesn't get your attention right away, we don't know what will. The transparent purple on an incredible flame top really makes this one pop. Guaranteed to turn heads!

Plugged in, this guitar sounds unbelievable. You're getting some of the girth of your favorite mahogany bodied singlecuts, but with the clarity and precision you'd expect from a superstrat styled guitar. You can absolutely get tight, percussive dirty rhythm tones out of this one as well as get a very clear, singing, sustaining lead tone with ease. Like every Modern, the playability is second to none; fret access from the first fret all the way to the 24th is a breeze and the guitar nearly plays itself.

This one's really special; check it out before it's too late!
