The concept for the Moneymaker was a long time in the making and assisted by Mark Strickland, whose knowledge is invaluable. In our opinion, most of the alloy guitars on the market were too heavy and usually modelled on traditional styles-why?! We needed a design that broke with convention, was well balanced and an acceptable weight. The alloy body provides the perfect Faraday cage for the pickups.

The alloy body is machined from a single billet and provides perfect rigid anchoring for all components, increasing sustain and rejecting string vibration – string energy stays where you need it – in the string. Hand made and machined in Nottingham, UK.

We experimented with alloy necks but came to the conclusion that the design works better with a traditional neck.

Hiscox hard case included.
