About The NitroJet
This familiar shape has always been one of my favorites but having a 22" scale made using it impractical. I really wanted one of these in my stable so I started by changing the body shape and removing the area above the upper bout where it climbed too high onto the neck (IMHO) and interfered with the flow of the line I believe was intended from the upper bout to the lower horn but got lost along the way. I made other subtle changes as well that I thought made the original Duo Sonic shape which was and is a beautiful thing even MORE balanced.
Next I enlarged the entire shape just a little everywhere and made it a full fledged big boy / girl instrument with the thickness of a Strat or Tele style instead of the thin duo sonic thickness that would accept a pickup the wasn't angled in the neck position to allow for more usable, modern, desirable options. .
Finally I made it a full scale instrument because,.. well LOOK at it! It needs to be out there getting actually played! It's just too pretty. This should not just be for "kids"
The body is done in a bathtub route of sorts so your options for pickup choices are unlimited. Heck, if you'd like you can just order another guard from us with completely different pups and throw that in for a while and have two different axes in the same animal. The bath tub route I used makes it feasible to use any tone wood you'd like without weight becoming an issue.
I am so happy to have a guitar that has been burning a hole in my brain for YEARS finally available to players.
