Meranti Body -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. Powersound Pickups -The Powersound pickups provide classic humbucker punch and tone with a quality/value quotient that cannot be beat. 6-Screw Vintage Tremolo -The vintage style 6-screw tremolo bridge transfers more of the strings’ vibrational energy into the body of the guitar for greater acoustic resonance while providing excellent tuning stability. Ergonomic Body Contour -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. Hardmaple Neck -The hard maple neck provides strength and stability while delivering a defined and punchy sound that mates well with virtually any type of body and fingerboard woods. Jatoba Fingerboard -Jatoba is a very dense and stiff wood that makes it ideal for the fingerboard usage. Jatoba produces strong fundamentals and volume projection with an emphasis on the high-mids.
