DENNIS STRATTON “SIGNATURE MODEL”
This Signature Guitar is a through neck construction made up of a five piece core of flame maple and ebony. Brazilian Mahogany body wings, carved flame maple top with a natural flame maple faux binding.
The fret board is also ebony with a flame maple binding with a section of the fret board showing as binding to match the ebony veneer strip which makes up part of the core and top. The fret board marker are MOP offset diamonds with the 1st to 12th having a gothic style engraved “D” to personalise the guitar for Dennis.
The hardware is the Schaller Floyd Rose trem and R3 locking nut with EMG 81 in the bridge and an EMG 85 in the neck – a killer combination. The finish is akin to the shades of a faded 59 LP as requested by Dennis. As this is a signature model it bares the Dennis Stratton signature on the headstock.
