Electric Guitars and Basses




The Apollo has a chambered Alder body . The front has a carved top. The neck is hard rock Maple. The scale length is 25.5". The pickups are Lollar mini humbuckers. The tuning machines are Gotoh 510s. Various options were used on the individual guitars like a bigsby or quilted maple top, or binding color, or custom inlays, knobs, gold hardware, electronic control layout. This model is being discontinued because of an agreement with a client that co-designed it.




The Mercury is a chambered Alder body with a rock Maple set neck with an Ebony fingerboard. The scale length is 25.5". This example uses Lollar Imperial humbuckers and a Graph Tech wrap around bridge with Ghost piezo saddles. There are two output jacks, one for just the electric and the other can be used as a blended signal with both the Lollars and the piezos or it can be switched to be used as just the piezos for an "acoustic guitar" sound. The marking dots are mother of pearl and the nut is bone. The tuning machines are Gotoh 510.





Meridian Bass

The Meridian five string has a low B string in addition to the E,A,D, and G that four string basses have. It is a five piece laminated neck through construction. The fingerboard has a compound radius from 12-20 inches. It has Hipshot ultra light tuning machines and a Hipshot bridge. The pickups are made by Nordstrand and it has an active tone circuit pre amp made by Aguilar. Battery changing requires no tools. The controls are Volume, Blend, Passive Tone (If your battery goes dead in the middle of a set, don't despair, simply switch to the passive circuitry by pulling this knob and rock on). The active tone controls are Bass, Middle (pull to switch midrange frequency) and Treble. The scale length is 35 inches.
