The design brief from Alex Stegmayr was clear with regards to neck slimness and playability in addition to accessibility of the 24th fret. The entire neck/bridge package was shifted forward in relation to the body to accommodate this. Due to the relatively heavy magnetic pickups, the balance of the instrument is good despite this. The weight still lands at only 2,700 grams. This is the first guitar equipped with a Graphtech Ghost system – I hope to have sound samples up soon.
