About This Listing

Body

The Curve Carve is made from a 3 piece ash body blank and maple neck with 6 aside locking tuners. The body has double, sculpted cutaways and is stained with a vibrant Amber dye. The three dimensional carve of the body produces unique swirling grain patterns that are emphasised with a dark stain.

Neck

The maple set neck has a dual action truss rod with aged copper leaf around the access hole. Hipshot locking tuners and a hand carved bone nut provide excellent tuning stability. The fretboard is made from Pau Ferro with Mother of Pearl or metallic fret markers. Jumbo Nickel-Silver fret wire is used and complemented with a bone nut. The fret board has a copper leaf inlayed gecko motif.

The scale length is 25 inches or 635 mm. This falls between the standard Gibson and Fender Scale lengths and sets a string tension at concert pitch that helps the guitar find a tone that is neither muddy nor too bright. The action is set moderate to low but can be adjusted on request and the frets have been polished so that it plays beautifully. The guitar has a glossy hard finish.

Pickups and Hardware

The Curve Carve features pickups from Iron Gear. These produce fantastic tones that match those of more expensive brands but at a very competitive price. This guitar uses a clean sounding Alchemist 90 single coil pickup in the neck position and a Rolling Mill humbucking pickup for classic rock tones at the bridge. 

Pickups are wired with a single volume and single tone control potentiometersand a five way wafer style switch for pickup selection. The humbucker pickup in the bridge position can be separately coil tapped with a push-pull potentiometer. This guitar uses an interesting and verstatile 'Bill Lawrence' wiring arrangement. Positions 1, 2 and 3 select the neck pickup, neck + bridge and bridge pickup. Position 4 selects the neck and bridge pickups but 90 degrees out of phase. This gives sounds that are similar to those found on a stratocaster. Position 5 selects the neck pickup but with 10% less bass to give a subtle, brighter tone.

Chrome pickup surrounds and a chrome Gotoh wrap around bridge allows precise intonation with elegance and style. The control knobs are recessed below the carved surface.

A hard case (tweed or black) is included in the price.

Please note that shipping outside the UK is likely to incur additional taxes.
