Not only does Xotic's heavy aging process give each guitar its own distinctive qualities and naturally aged look, it allows the body wood to breathe and resonate for a highly sought-after tone. The look of the aztec gold over sunburst finish on this guitar gives it a noble, powerful aesthetic. Combined with a roasted flame maple neck and Indian rosewood fingerboard, this guitar has an organic tone and vintage mojo that is distinctly Xotic.
Hand-wound and assembled in California, Raw Vintage USA single coil pickups are built with period-correct specs to produce classic tones. Features include Alnico 5 magnets, single Formvar copper wire, vintage style push back cloth, as well as leads dipped in layers of lacquer and wax. For even more tonal variations, this HSS pickup configuration features a Raw Vintage RV-PAF-F humbucker in the bridge position that harkens back to early PAF-style pickups.
