Born of Empirical Status…
Because of the slim, smooth neck and nut combination, travelling up and down the fretboard at great speed is easily achievable so is appealing to more technically proficient players. This said, the Empire does not discriminate and welcomes all that cross its path.
The resonance of this guitar comes from the clever channelling of string tones into the body via the unique fretboard tail and solid Tilia body.
The combination of a slanted split single-coil (middle/neck) and dual-pole single-coil (bridge) gives essential balance of volume and clarity to notes played on any string and at any fret position.
Further versatility lies within the individual volume controls which are conveniently placed in relation to each pickup. The overall tone control is located in the upper body position for ease of access and live tweaks to your sound. All control knobs are sunken into the body to offer a low-profile, sleek design and the chrome matches beautifully with the adjustable bridge and angled jack input.
