The Gremlin Sparkle Majesty comes with a naked fretboard, featuring no inlays or fretboard markers, for a striking and streamlined aesthetic. It also sports all black hardware, with the bridge, knobs, tuners, switches, pole pieces and backplates all resplendent in black, alongside a tremolo that’s hand-signed by Dream Theater’s John Petrucci. The Gremlin Sparkle colourway is seen all over the guitar, including the headstock and back of the neck. There’s no chance you’ll be lost in the crowd with this colour.


This model is limited to 89 pieces worldwide.

Next up we have the StingRay in Brilliant Blue. The exquisite paint job sits atop a lightweight okoume body, that’s fitted with matte black hardware, chrome pickups and a black scratchplate. If that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, the roasted figured maple neck comes with an ebony fretboard that’s equipped with pearlescent white block position markers.

The StingRay in Brilliant Blue is limited to 52 pieces worldwide.

Finally we have the Cutlass SSS, resplendent in a beautiful Scarlet Red polyester finish. The Cutlass features a lightweight alder body, and a roasted maple neck and fretboard, finished with a white binding and oversized position markers. This killer model also features a matching painted four over two headstock and locking tuners.


The Cutlass SSS is limited to 51 pieces worldwide.
