This beautiful Griffin Series guitar has a 24-fret fingerboard with an extra-long scale length of 26.6 inches. The board has a compound radius of 13 inches at the tail down to 8 inches at the nut. The hollow body design of this guitar makes it incredibly light weighing in at just 5.6 pounds.

The shape of the neck is what we call the Howie Thick Line. At the nut the depth is 0.92 inches and at the 12th fret it is 1.0 inch. It’s not super fat and round like an early Les Paul neck but it’s also not super thin like the 1960s Gibson ES 335s. It’s pretty much right in the middle leaning more toward the Les Paul side. The width at the nut is 1.67 inches and at the tail it is 2.25 inches.

The pickups on this guitar are Seymour Duncan’s Black Winter humbuckers. These humbuckers are unique in that they have some of the highest resistance you can get from a passive pickup. This gives you plenty of ceiling room for soloing and clarity, while at the same time, the volume and tone controls on this guitar make it so they can be turned down to accommodate nearly any style of playing.
