Here we have another gorgeous piece from RKS. This guitar is the product of thousands of hours of design and trial and error from the California based makers. The instrument is composed of a "core" with sides fixed to it with either wood or aluminum rods, making it a very flexible design. This instrument looks fierce in a matte black finish with uncovered humbuckers to boot. The bridge and frets had some oxidation when we received this guitar, but our in house luthier has removed most of the unsightly rust and shined them up nice. The neck is fairly straight and overall the instrument is in very good condition. Ships in a TKL hardshell case.
Weight: 8 lbs. 4 oz.

COMPOSING AN UNEXPECTED MUSICAL INNOVATION;
THE WORLD'S FIRST SUSTAINABLE GUITAR
Reinventing an icon like the electric guitar is a truly big challenge, but one that every ambitious designer at RKS dreamt about. As a huge music and guitar fan, RKS’ CEO Ravi Sawhney challenged his team to create a high performance electric guitar made out of sustainable materials that would attract first time learners, as well as the best guitar players in the world. The challenge included developing the right shape, ergonomics, tone, balance and aesthetics for the guitar as well as a modular architecture that allowed easy customization. In order to position the product with a distinct differentiation on the market the design had to provide significant improvements to the guitar players’ experience over that provided by traditional electric guitars. Such as expanded tonal range, faster volume, selector controls and weight reduction.
