The frets are worked laterally eliminating the tang, then filling the void left with glue and powder of the same essence the wood of which the fretboard d is made. This foresight is carried out to prevent the fret, during the changes in humidity to which it will be subjected, from escaping from the neck and disturbing, even if imperceptibly, the passage of the hand.
The bridge, an impressive Schaller Vintage roller, is placed above one of the routings enabling you to use the tremolo also in extension while keeping it parallel to the plane of the body so as to allow the descent an octave during its maximum compression.
Who makes moderate use of the tremolo bar, can optioned saddles self-lubricating in "synthetic ivory" by Tusq, instead of steel ones with rollers, to further increase the sustain without sacrificing the tuning
Tusk saddles ( self-lubricating in "synthetic ivory" ) are advised for tremolo moderated use, instead of steel ones with rollers, to further increase sustain without sacrification of tuning
The headstock is of the type parallel to the fretboard, has the classic string tree on the cantini and has a truss-rod cover with the name of the model engraved above.
The neck is made of a single piece; 24.75" Scale length ; Profile "modern C"; Nut width: 43 mm (1.7”) wide; Wide at 12th fret: 53 mm (2.1”) : Thickness at first fret 18,50 mm (0.7”) and 21.50 mm (0.8”) at 12th fret.
The inlays in perloyd/motherof pearl/abalone all have a 6mm (0.2”) diameter (perfectly centered between the strings).
The surface contact area between the neck and the body is 100% paint-free to ensure a perfect fusion between the natural fibers of the two woods, being the key point for tonal transfer through which vibrations are transmitted (which is the essential condition under which the above mentioned principle properly works and a sort of "identity card"of an instrument truly made with utmost care).
The electronics compartment is efficiently shielded thanks the use of conductive paints combined with aluminum foil.
The nut is a "zero fret" This guarantees the correct height and alignment of the strings above the fretboard; a graphite guide keeps the strings in place at the right distance and on their natural axis, without any deviance, moving onto the self-locking “staggered” Schaller mechanics (thanks to which it is possible to have a regular nut pressure as well as an optimal angle to get a proper sustain)..
The decision to use a fret rather than a more traditional nut was based on the need to create a minimum contact surface area with the string, so that the string could slide with the minimum friction. Furthermore the sound doesn’t change if the string is played open or on any other fret, because the surface is made of the same material as the other frets.
