The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.
EMG Active Custom Red 81/89 Pickups
Requested by Gary Holt in Red Custom made by EMG. The 81/89 set utilizes the powerful 81 in bridge position and the 89 in the Neck position. 81- Powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. This pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. 89- Loaded with Alnico V magnets and has separate preamps each providing custom outputs for both dual coil and single coil modes.
