The basic idea was a better follow up of the Jabocaster. It should be able to produce all the different sounds of the Scorpions, from wallcrashing heavy to ultraclean. All sounds should be available from the guitar controls. Also it should feature 24 frets. The development took a couple of prototypes, the final model represents the optimum. This varity of sounds is possible by the use of the brandnew Dommenget patented pickups, carefully made to Matthias specifications. Body : old german alder Neck : european maple, carbon-reinforced, medium D Fretboard : rosewood, long scale Inlays : Dot mother of pearl, Sign in fretboard Abalone / mother of pearl frets : jumbo Dunlop 6150 (Gibson) Machineheads : Kluson vintage style Bridge : FloydRose original Tremolo Schaller Strap Locks Pickup Bridge :"Masterbucker B"(HBSC combination Humbucker / Single Coil, patented ) Pickup middle : Funkstrat, reverse polarity Pickup Neck : "Masterbucker N" (HBSC combination Humbucker / Single Coil ) Colour: White Zebra For the reasons of sound we use the good old 4-hole steelplate to hold the neck. The connection is "wood-on-wood" non-laquered to enhance the sound even more ( an old Jimi Hendrix trick with remarkable results ). The original Floyd Rose tremolo is mounted flat to the top (downwards only) for more sustain and stay-in-tune-ability. Laquer ultra thin and hand polished, Nitro laquer, 15 coatings.more
