Some of the best fun that you can have with your clothes on! A very faithful scaling down of the classic LP design, with twin humbuckers and volume/tone on each pickup, and a 3 way selector switch, so you can quickly and easily switch from searing lead sounds on the bridge pickup to chunky strumming sounds on the neck pickup and everything in between.
Made in the Czech Republic, this instrument is very well made indeed, with great attention not just to the styling, but also to the finishing. The hardware is as you would expect from RISA - high quality components - which combined with the build quality makes for an instrument that sounds good and is built to last.
To replace the strings, you need the middle 4 strings from a standard set of 10 gauge electric guitar strings (13, 17, 26, 36), which gives you the low G tuning. To get a high G tuning, you need an additional 13 gauge single string.
It can also be tuned like a mandolin, if you want to play it in 5ths!
Pictures show an average example. Each one is different, with different features, grain patterns and inclusions in the wood visible beneath the finish. If you want photos of actual stock, please drop us a line.
