Harley Benton has revealed a new entry to the Dullahan-FT headless range. The Dullahan FT 24 Roasted Ice joins the other affordable headless models on offer from the brand.
The guitar gets its name from the combination of an icy-cool blue finish and a roasted Canadian flame maple neck, which has some subtle striping up its length.
The bolt-on guitar also has 24 frets, all of which should be easy to reach thanks to the deeper carve at the neck join,. The radius suits the headless nature of the instrument, being a flat 13.78 inches. In terms of electronics, there are two Roswell ‘HAF’ humbuckers, which offer a voicing just slightly hotter than what’s considered ‘vintage,’ so while there’s still articulation and clarity, you get a bit more push and compression from a cranked amplifier.
If humbucker tones aren’t your thing, the 5-way switch allows you to split each one, meaning single-coiled spank is always accessible.
The body is made of alder and features a deep ergonomic belly carve as well as a forearm bevel – and rather than the C-shaped tail-end that some headless guitars opt for to make room for the bridge, there’s a raised portion of the body instead.
The guitar is available to preorder now for €499. Find out more at harleybenton.com.
