• Chambered Swamp Ash Body
Swamp ash is both light and resonant, and generally carries a broad grain that looks great under a translucent finish. The swamp ash sound is twangy, airy, and sweet. It offers firm lows, pleasant highs, a slightly scooped midrange, and good sustain.
• AAA Flame Maple top
A maple top produces an extremely bright, precise tone with tight lows. Maple is a light-colored wood with a tightly packed grain, and it contributes tightness and clarity.

Graph Tech Guitar Labs specializes in the production of man-made materials that are engineered to possess specific tonal qualities for custom guitar parts. LightWave pickups are produced of a special material that renders a natural tone from the guitar strings without coloring it with extra resonances. iceTone™ is LightWave Systems’ exclusive circuit, which allows users to blend the LightWave Optical Pickup with tailored piezo transducers built into each string saddle. The result is a smooth, natural high-frequency enhancement ranging from crisp high-end to percussive presence.
