Pebble: smooth, dense, compact, durable. This is a terrific guitar for those who love to Rock!

It may be modern in execution, but has some timeless sounds at its disposal, thanks to the Tone Emporium '74 PAF pickups. There is also a push-pull tone knob to create single-coil sounds, with the phase reversed for a haunting and hollow-sounding middle position.

The smoothly contoured body is warm and dense black walnut, capped with figured maple. The neck is exceptionally thin rock maple, and sports a beautifully striped cocobolo fretboard with medium stainless-steel frets.

The bridge/tuners and headpiece are Hipshot's new rock-solid and low-profile headless hardware.
