Wow that is a looker indeed! Very cool gradation to the finish and an even cooler colour combo! Not to mention the 57/66 pickup combo - that must be so tuneful.
Hi Rolan, thanks for your comments!
This guitar with purple changed to black and blue changed to red would be awesome. Could it be possible?
Hi Gonzalo, that would be difficult to have so many colors, but I'm sure it's possible. But how would it look? It's hard to make the transition for that many colors in such a small area. But thanks for the suggestion!
Or maybe it was Use black instead of purple and use red instead of blue. That was my idea when I was looking at it
Hi Anthony, I see. So From Black to Red? That could look pretty cool. We gotta try something like that!
Why are there active pickups? Passive pickups are better.
Thanks for your comments. We try to offer various selections of models with active and passive pickups although it's impossible to make every guitar perfect for every player. If you haven't heard these EMG 57/66 pickups, I suggest you try them. They have a very nice sound and sound much cleaner than your typical EMG 81.
I was wondering the same,I want active pickups on mine!
Hi Mark, These pickups are active, but they're not the same as a traditional EMG 81/60 set.
As someone who has worked with 81 based sets and the 57/66 sets - what Todd says is quite true. Try them out at your local guitar shop - they're really pretty amazing.
The 81s do nail what they do very well, but are a bit of a one trick pony. The 57/66 are far more versatile while still retaining almost all the "bite" the 81/85/60 do.
Hey Havoc, Thanks for your additional comments. You are exactly right about these pickups. Thanks for adding some more info on these pickups. Everyone should at least try them once before they rule them out.
Can I get this guitar without active pickups?
This model is currently only available with the EMG pickups that are shown. It's possible we may release some other versions with passive pickups next year.
I just ordered one for my son as a graduation present. He totally fell in love with it. Unfortunately it will not arrive until June. Do you have an image that I can have printed as a poster so I can give it to him on the big day?
Sorry for this late reply. Please contact our customer service team or your sales rep and hopefully they can help with this request. You can also copy and paste the image from our site but I'm not sure the resolution is high enough.
