It all started with a shipment of extraordinary burl maple. We saw this wood and knew we had to design a guitar around it, so we did. The Burl Burst collection is available in our 50s series as well as this elegant Custom Collection 60s model. That burl top is on an korina body and we came up with a burst finish just to bring out the full potential of that exotic wood. We accented it all in gold with just enough black. Of course that appearance is just the start, we added great pickups, our in-demand Epic 11 wiring mod and our Medium C neck profile.

The Epic Eleven
The Epic Eleven electronics hot-rod mod delivers maximum sonic versatility. With Epic Eleven you get to break away from the typical 5 tones limitation of a traditional 5-way switch wiring. The secret sauce is the added mini-toggle, which allows you to add in the neck pickup into configurations where it would not normally be available. The second way that the Epic Eleven Mod adds sonic options is with a push-pull on the Master Volume which allows you to coil tap the bridge humbucker, switching from hum to a vintage single coil tone.

Modern C Neck
Comfort without sacrifice, that is how you might describe our Modern-C shape. The size is what many would call medium to medium-thin and the shape is a really smooth and comfortable round shape. The thin profile makes it faster than the typical vintage neck, while the carefully contoured C-shape makes it comfortable for extended playing.
