The Culpa – Guitar Prototype

This guitar is for the high powered heavy hitting modern guitarist. I call it The Culpa. It’s built around a 26 1/2″ scale, Macassar Ebony fretboard with a 14″ radius and 24 Jescar Evo gold frets. The neck is a 5 piece Maple / Purpleheart laminate for increased stability. The 1 5/8″ nut width provides ample room for complex maneuvers while still being comfortable for chording.

The Culpa has first-class everything: Set neck construction, 1 piece Figured Mahogany body with custom see-thru ‘blood red’ finish, see-thru satin red burst finish on the back of the neck, Gotoh tune-o-matic bridge, string-thru body, EMG Hetfield pickups, bone nut, and Sperzel locking tuners, Dunlop Strap-Loks of course. The longer scale is just right for low tunings such as C# standard, C Standard and drop tunings.
