Helix Custom – Ziricote / Padauk

$2,799.00

Our thinnest and fastest neck. The Helix was designed around it’s thin yet curved profile that sits comfortably in your hands. It features a deep cutaway and combined with our professional fret dressing and set up, the low action let’s you fret clean notes with minimal effort right up to the highest fret.

This Helix features a Ziricote top finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer bound in beautiful orange padauk binding on the body and padauk accents on the neck and headstock.  The cavity cover uses a perfectly matched piece of wood from the body and trades screws for powerful neodymium magnets. The cover can only be removed with the provided magnetic removal tool and won’t accidentally become dislodged by metal objects like belt buckles. Likewise the truss rod cover is secured with powerful neodymium instead of screws for easy access and a streamlined look.

It comes with direct mounted pickups using threaded inserts and machine screws along with traditional mounting springs and foam. The result is a direct mount system that positively couples the pickup with the body while delivering far greater range of adjustability and longevity. The super thin neck is finished Wenge with Maple stringers and passes into the body with a super smooth transition. Its outfitted with smooth turning CTS potentiometers and an orange drop capacitor nestled inside of a fully shielded electronic cavity for noise free operation.

Guitar ships with a standard hard case.
