New Model: Nova


Hi Everyone!

It's new model time again and although this one was quite a long time in the making we think it's been worth the effort! Using a few new building techniques, this is our strongest build so far and we're really proud of how it turned out.

To compliment the beautiful Buckeye Burl top we loaded the Nova with a calibrated set of Aftermaths from Bare Knuckle Pickups® with tiger stripe covers and black nickel Gotoh® hardware all round.

This was also our first "stock" build to have a 3x3 style headstock but we're very pleased with the results. But that's just what we think, check out the pics and specs below and let us know what you reckon!
