Purple Heart

Regular price $2,250.00 $2,000.00 Sale

The “Purple Heart” timber is amongst the hardest timber in the world. This one was sourced as an offcut of a giant piece of furniture that was commissioned here in the northern rivers. The piece we used for the neck, the fretboard is a perfect quarter sawn and incredibly consistent all across, the dynamic coming from the neck is incredible on is own. With a D shape profile, the neck feels really comfortable and ergonomic for both chord and picking players. The body is made of a book matched flatsawn old Australian pine. The “Shou-Sugi-ban” technique to finish the body is an ancient Japanese tradition which consists in burning the surface to crystallize the resin, then oiled to give a waterproof property to the piece, whilst leaving the ability to age naturally... its texture is very real and organic, topped with a distressed white lacquer.... the choice of pickups is modern p90 from Kent Armstrong, loud and punchy as you’d expect but with a hum-canceling technology this takes you to another level of comfort, also integrated is a bypass switch which acts as a natural boost switch, pure joy right here!! Custom made Mother of pearl inlays and pickup covers for a being noticed a mile away!
