The Meranti body has similar tonal characteristics to Mahogany with a strong mid-midrange that will cut through the mix with authority for rhythm while providing sweet highs for singing leads.
The Powersound PSEG-1F & PSEG-1R (H-H) pickups provide classic humbucker punch and tone with a quality/value quotient that cannot be beat.
The vintage style 6-screw tremolo bridge transfers more of the stringsâ€™ vibrational energy into the body of the guitar for greater acoustic resonance while providing excellent tuning stability.
Both comfort and appearance was enhanced with an elegantly contoured arm cut on the top. This modification to the body has been carefully laid out on the bodies of the X guitars for maximum comfort without removing unnecessary amounts of wood. The lines of the X body are graceful for aesthetic beauty as well as for ergonomic considerations.
