Fingerboard Radius
10" - 16"
Fret Size
The frets are Nickel and are wide, medium height, with a flattened pyramid shape. Nickel preferred over steel as it has a slightly sweeter tone and the medium profile ensures you’re hearing more of the fingerboard while also not pushing the note out of tune…like some taller fretwire.

Width at the last fret
76mm (3")
Neck Construction
3 Pc Quater-Sawn Maple
Neck Carve
Modern shape….slightly thin to medium with an asymmetrical carve where the treble side carve is a little more aggressive from the centre of the neck to the fingerboard edge. This makes for a faster feel while still keeping thick enough for comfort to avoid premature hand cramping

Two-way truss rod with a 4mm wrench

Pickup

Pickup Modes (Switches)
Single-Coil (middle toggle position): Of all the modes, this produces the brightest and most open tone with the quickest attack. In comparison to the standard BN series, these singles are a little more lean and a touch warmer. Series Humbucking (down toggle position): Produces the highest output and a much thicker, darker, and more compressed tone. Parallel Humbucking (up toggle position): Produces a slightly thicker tone than the articulate single-coil mode without any of the 60 cycle hum.
Controls
First Row: Neck Volume, Bridge Volume (push for single-coil, pull for hum-cancelling), Master Tone (push for active, pull for passive) Second Row: Bass Boost, Mid Boost, Treble Boost 2x Three-way toggle switches to select the pickup mode for the neck and bridge pickups
