Description

Boutique-type design and styling along with expanded tonal options for session-style guitar at a reasonable price are the hallmarks of the new G290 FAT. Higher-grade materials, hardware and components and improved build processes provide a more luxurious feel and look. A 5-way switch for the two humbuckers expands the tonal options from thick and meaty humbucker sounds to glassy and sparkling single-coil sounds for the utmost in sonic versatility.

FLAMED MAPLE TOP ON SWAMP ASH BODY - An essential electric guitar tonewood, Swamp Ash is lightweight but delivers a serious punch with accented high-mids.

VOICED TONE VTH-77 PICKUP SET - Besides providing modern high output for today's high-energy music, these new VTH-77 pickups also clean up nicely to get great classic rock and bluesy tones to cover a wide variety of musical genres and playing styles.

STAGGERED LOCKING MACHINE HEADS - The staggered locking machine heads provide greatly improved tuning stability and ease of tuning. No more winding strings around the post of the machine head, slip the strings through the hole in the posts, lock the string with the wheel on the back and start tuning. It is simple, elegant and effective and allows you to focus on the playing.

Cort® CFA-III TREMOLO - This uncompromising tremolo system features stainless steel saddles, solid machined steel block, and steel baseplate to provide greatly improved sustain, faster and punchier pick attack and a more coherent and balanced fundamental tone.

1 VOLUME & 1 TONE 5-WAY SWITCH - The 5-way switch is custom-wired to provide glassy and sparkling single-coil sounds in the 2nd and 4th positions as well as the full-bodied and powerful humbucker sounds in the bridge, middle and neck positions.

BIRDSEYE MAPLE NECK & FINGERBOARD - Hand-selected Birdseye Maple neck and fingerboard provide a luxurious look and a strong high-midrange that helps you cut through the mix.

COMPOUND RADIUS FINGERBOARD(12-15.75”) - A deluxe feature for players who like to transition from easy chording on the low register to high-speed soloing and enhanced string-bending on the upper register, the compound radius facilitates easier playability so you can focus on your playing.

ERGO-V NECK PROFILE - The newly designed Ergo-V neck profile and shape provide more comfort at any position across the entire neck for enhanced playability.

SPOKE NUT HOTROD TRUSSROD - The spoke nut hotrod truss rod ensures smooth and precise setting of the neck bow. Often overlooked by many guitarists, the neck bow (or relief) is critical for the best possible playability. This new truss rod adjustment feature allows the player to dial in the exact amount of neck bow depending on the player’s technique and playing style. Whether you are a legato fusion player with a light touch or a Texas blues master who digs hard into the strings in the lower register, this new truss rod will allow you to dial in the exact amount of bow to suit your style.

SATIN NECK FINISH - A clean look and no drag on your fingers due to the smooth satin finish means more comfort, increased speed and enhanced playability.
