Primed to Rock with Scorching Duncan™ Pickup Power SM-1 Seymour Duncan®
SM-1 Seymour Duncan®
From the leading name in shred-certified rock machines comes a new guitar primed with the power for optimum rock action. Not only is the SM-1 With Seymour Duncans™ and Floyd Rose™ loaded with the kind of high-performance components that leading rock warriors demand, it’s also crafted with meticulous attention to detail in the top tonewoods with labor-intensive "through-neck" styling. The result is a guitar of optimum versatility, searing tone, and unbridled sustain. In short, the SM-1 With Seymour Duncans™ and Floyd Rose™ is an unparalleled performance tool, ready to handle all the speed and aggression that any top rock virtuoso can throw its way. Finished in Vintage White gloss, the guitar is also every bit as stunning to look at as it is to play.
Mahogany is a legendary tonewood, beloved by players and luthiers alike for its excellent blend of depth, richness and clarity. The body of the SM-1 With Seymour Duncans™ and Floyd Rose™ is made from solid mahogany, in a "through-neck" design in which another solid piece of mahogany forms both the neck and central body core. The neck itself is carved to the popular SlimTaper™ profile, known for its blend of speed and comfort, and topped with an ebony fingerboard with 24 medium-jumbo frets and a 14-inch radius. The guitar is built to the 25 1/2" scale length that many shredders prefer, which offers tight, thumping lows, crystal-clear highs, and shimmering harmonics.
The SM-1 With Seymour Duncans™ and Floyd Rose™ carries a set of premium Seymour Duncan® humbuckers, carefully chosen for their outstanding blend of tone, power, and versatility. A high-output Alternative 8® humbucker in the bridge position takes your solos and crunch rhythm work totally over the top. With over-wound coils and a mighty Ceramic 8 magnet, the Alternative 8® presents a huge, punchy sound with fat mids and excellent presence, without ever going muddy or shrill like some high-powered humbuckers. A pair of popular Cool Rails® single-coil sized "dual rails" humbuckers in the bridge and middle positions provide everything from spanky country tones to smooth, warm blues. A mini-toggle allows for coil-tapping of all three pickups. For extreme tonal versatility, we’ve added a push/pull switch on the volume that engages the bridge pickup with all combinations of the 5-way pickup selector switch. Also loaded with genuine Floyd Rose™ "double-locking" vibrato bridge and locking nut, with black die-cast tuners up top, the SM-1 With Seymour Duncans™ and Floyd Rose™ is primed for all the scorching rock action you can dish out, and ready to come back perfectly in tune every time.
