ROASTED FLAME MAPLE NECK
Hand-selected roasted flame maple comprises the neck of each JZ FRO. In addition to the beautiful aesthetic, the thermal process removes moisture and impurities, resulting in stability and longevity. This also protects against changes in temperature and humidity, making it an ideal solution for musicians on the go. The Modern C neck adaptive profile caters to many playing styles. With a first fret depth of 20mm at the 1st fret – 21mm at the 12th fret, and a smooth satin finish to seal the deal.
The new Vola VFP90 pickups offer a harmonious blend of possibilities, finding the perfect middle ground between the spanky brightness of a single coil and the warmth and fullness of a humbucker. Their responsive nature lends itself well to rich leads and articulated riffs in a variety of styles and genres. With the adjusted output capacity and lower resonant peak, it can handle deeper low-end and milder, smoother highs. The centrally placed VS-I single coil adds to its diverse range.
