Body and Finish
Mahogany is a legendary tonewood, beloved by players and luthiers alike for its excellent blend of depth, richness and clarity. The body of the SM-1 With EMGs™ and Floyd Rose™ is made from solid mahogany, in a "through-neck" design in which another solid piece of mahogany forms both the neck and central body core. The neck itself is carved to the popular SlimTaper™ profile, known for its blend of speed and comfort, and topped with an ebony fingerboard with 24 medium-jumbo frets and a 14-inch radius. The guitar is built to the 25 1/2" scale length that many shredders prefer, which offers tight, thumping lows, crystal-clear highs, and shimmering harmonics.
