Each V.O.T. is painstakingly aged by hand to give the guitar a comfortable, broken-in feel right out of the included, heavy-duty MONO Guitar Sleeve. Every guitar is set up to perfection with a full fret dress and rolled fingerboard edges. As beautiful as this guitar looks, it plays and sounds EVEN BETTER! The clarity of the Firebird pickup along with the amazingly clear punch and drive of the vintage-crafted, slightly hotter bridge humbucker make this an unbelievably versatile tone monster!
One might just say that the VOICE OF THUNDER is one "eclectic electric"!
I play, and continue to "tweak" every completed guitar for a minimum of one week prior to shipping to ensure superb playability for its new owner.
