This is the first instrument that we have built in the name of iFusion® with a Fender® Licensed body. This particular body is the last solid-front that was currently available. The photographs, unfortunately, do not show the true grandeur of this instrument - the silver metal-flake finish reflects all of the darker colours around it.
This guitar has been hand-built by Ben Skidmore. The neck pocket has been routed (mainly removing finish) to exactly fit the neck heel, it has been fret-dressed down to 2.3 mm, the body routed for the pots and switch. There is a Gotoh® Tremolo System with a steel block.
The potential additional body-weight made basswood as deciding factor (apparently!) and it does not detract from the additional wood-tone gained from the instrument; each pickup has a very distinctive sound and provides a very sharp, distinctive 'vibe'.
The pickups give a remarkably good 'mid heavy' sound but we have a neck adder in the TGE harness which gives it the most beautiful 'hollow-ish' rendering.
The harness is a TGE harness with CTS pot and a 500K pot.
We wanted to sharpen up the sound of the basswood body so fitted the guitar with maple neck with a 22 fret ebony fingerboard.
We have also filed the frets down to 2.3 mm so they are not as 'sharp' as the jumbo frets normally on this neck.
iFusion Bespoke Instruments are made to order. This is an example that we have made to 'ply our trade'! It is for sale and has some 'features' that we would rather not be there and if we were making to order would not be (unless we agreed to a mutual benefit - as these instruments are so priced) . We are more than pleased to receive requests for specific instruments that we will sell via eBay if you prefer that to meeting up with us.
