This is an RKS Wave from the 2000s in Satin Black. RKS has been producing electric guitars since the early 2000s with wild designs in an “open architecture” style. The instruments were composed of a "core" with sides fixed to it with either wood or aluminum rods, making it a very flexible design. This piece is in excellent condition, with a very clean body and only some light scratches on the back and some discoloration on the saddle screws. The instrument also plays nicely with a great sound from the Lace powered humbuckers. Ships in a hardshell case with a built-in tuner and dragon paint job.
Weight: 7 lbs. 12 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.
