Not only does this guitar sound a feel fantastic but also looks Stunning! with its Genuine Pearl with Abalone inlays, Triple Cream binding, Quilted maple cap stained with a Partial Eclipse fade finish this guitar is truly one of a kind. the paint work on this is usually associated with extremely pricey guitars hand built in custom shops around the world but now available at this amazing price!

        Rockfield Pickups

        Bridge: The Rockfield SWC (Select Wound Custom) bridge pickup was designed from the ground up by meticulously researching old design documents, spec sheets, wood shed articles, building, testing and re-testing for countless days and endless hours. Most importantly though they shut up and listened to what the players wanted. After all the questions were answered and the research and testing were done, they finally came out of the lab with a killer pickup that we as players are also extremely proud of. The Rockfield SWC pickups are slightly over wound and provide "ringing bell like" clean tones and growling vintage style leads with endless warmth and sustain. However, turn up the gain in your favorite amp and the natural bold and spongy tone of these pickups sizzles and cooks into a very full aggressive distortion without loosing note or tonal definition. The Split coil option or "Tapped" positions are useful and articulate well for a great pickup in any format!
        Neck: Obviously, they had to complement the SWC bridge position pickup with a neck pickup that was just as strong as its brother. So back to the drawing board they went. With the main design concepts down and fundamentals selected previously, a tweak here and a tweak there gave them a perfect blend of clean and bold tone that is round and spongy as it is singing and smooth. Tested and re-tested in many formats including with other makes and models of bridge pickups, we feel this neck pickup is the perfect addition to any guitar!
