Body and Finish
The Maple top/Mahogany body tonewood combination has become legendary for good reasons, and the Assault 220 Plus proves its case yet again. By blending the warmth, depth, and creamy low-end response of Mahogany with Maple's high-frequency clarity and articulation, the Assault 220 Plus covers all the sonic bases with ease. A solid Mahogany neck—glued in, rather than bolted—further contributes to the Assault 220 Plus's resonance and sustain, while a fast SlimTaper™ profile and 24-fret ebony fingerboard (maple on the natural-finished model) let you rev up all the speed you can muster. In another twist on the format, the Assault 220 Plus is built to the 25 1/2" scale length that many shredders prefer, which offers tight, thumping lows, crystal-clear highs, and shimmering harmonics.
