This project is started before MK1 guitar but I changed my mind about Floyd Rose so I decided to start new guitar from scratch with higher priority. MK2 should be less “hard-core-shredding” guitar than MK1, but the highlight here is on luxury and of course high quality. Body is hand painted by my aunt (she’s a professional painter) and it took few months to complete because it has many small details. Basically, it’s done with three colors: red, yellow and black and all elements are taken from ancient Egyptian letters/paintings. It has beautiful fixed Schaller bridge with fine tuners and golden string saddles.
- 25.5″ scale
- Schaller fixed bridge with fine tuners, recessed into the body for low profile feel.
- Tom Brantley hand wound pickups, similar to Seymour Duncan 78, very well defined and bright but not shrill tone.
- Grover tuners.
- Maple neck with modern C profile, rosewood fingerboard with 12″ radius and medium-sized frets.
- European elm body, dense and heavy, sonically between ash and mahogany. Shape is modernized strat, loosely inspired by Ibanez JS.
