Artist AS72 Black Paisley Relic Electric Guitar w/ Hand-Made Pickups

Dig beneath the ordinary and reveal the extraordinary. The Artist AS72 comes bounding through time, from the paddocks of Woodstock 1969 into your waiting hands - but not without a quick stop off to catch up with the times! We painstakingly relic'd the vintage-style nitrocellulose finish on these, adding a scar here and a gash there to give your brand-new guitar that well-loved look. The quarter-sawn roasted maple satin neck is topped with a rosewood fretboard, a material becoming rarer by the day within the worldwide guitar market. The 14" fingerboard radius allows for super low action and effortless bends, while glow-in-the-dark fret markers on the side of the neck map the fretboard on even the darkest of pub stages. 

Having tested untold amounts of pickup options, we settled on a set of high-end, hand-made pickups wound by the Laohao workshop, a small team producing low-quantity batches of custom pickups to a frankly unbelievable standard. The bridge humbucker provides a bit more bite than your average S-type guitar, while the neck and middle positions sound that familiar quack we all know and love. Each AS72 comes with copper shielding, making it whisper quiet when you're not playing!

A bone nut, locking tuners, strap locks, and a modern-style bridge will keep your tuning stable, and your guitar strapped to your shoulder... you won't want to scratch your new favourite guitar!
