Custom Collection 1965 Striped Ebony
The Custom Collection 65 model features a hard to find exotic ebony top. Each guitar is unique, all with a rich depth of pattern. We have adorned it with all of our best features and an amazing playability. It is finished out with the unique touch of flame maple binding and the sonically versatile Epic Eleven electronics mod.
EPIC ELEVEN MOD
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.
