According to company owner and co-builder Nick Perri: “While I’m very proud of all the guitars we have put out over the last 5 years, it was definitely time to take the leap and do an original body style. I first drew this guitar shape and pickguard on a napkin, and to now be playing it onstage and sharing it with the world is an incredible feeling.”
The guitar features a swamp ash body with a real ash wood pickguard. The quarter-sawn maple neck is adorned with a rosewood fingerboard, clay inlays, and a reverse headstock. Of the headstock Perri says: “It not only looks cool, but contributes wonderfully balanced string tension from the low to high E. I grew up playing Firebirds, and there is something very different and special about the way the strings feel with a reverse headstock.” Rounding out the model are trio of Seymour Duncan Antiquity Texas Hot pickups, and a Callaham vintage style tremolo. The guitar comes strung with GHS Boomers, and includes either a SKB hard case or MONO M80 soft case.
“It’s taken a lifetime of playing, and many years of building to even conceive a guitar like this. I have put everything I know and love about guitars into this model, and I can’t wait for people to feel and hear it for themselves” Perri said in conclusion.
