New Model: Sentinel V2


Hey Everyone!

This one has been a long time coming but we've finally given our Sentinel model a face-lift! The result is the Sentinel V2 and must say we're pretty proud of this one.

It's a beautifully sounding and playing guitar with the perfect storm of compnents to bring it all together. The low action and a super thin profile neck help make shredding effortless while the Hipshot® hardware all round help give great quality sustain and performance. For the pickups we used a mix of high output Axesrus® pups to give a nice variety of tones while still having the power to melt any unsuspecting audience member's face off!

As for the Sentinel V2's looks, well we went with a 3 piece body of Wenge, Maple and Spalted Beech to give it some interesting contrasts. Mirroring those contrasts in the body we built a "Zen" Fretboard using mixture of Maple and Ebony, that not only looks unique but sounds unique. The Rest of the neck is made from a 9 piece laminate of Wenge and Bubinga with Maple accents. Anyway, enough boasting, here come the pictures! Full spec at the bottom of the post.
