Artist Series Richie Allan HYPE GTR
With the help of Richie, we created a variation of our popular HYPE model with a striking red on white presence and we will be offering two options which will be available until sold out; 6 + 7 string with a Floyd Rose bridge, or an 8 string multiscale. A hardcase is included with both variations.
The RA features a chambered Swamp Ash body, a 5pc Bubinga / Wenge neck, and a Maple fretboard finished with red inlay dots and scallops to the 21-24 frets. The body is Platinum Pearl which is a three stage paint with stunning effects; starting with a pure white base coat, a layer of finely ground pearl pigment is applied in a clear coat. From there, more clear is added for depth. If you compare this to metallic paints which are ground aluminium dust mixed directly with colour, using pearls adds more shimmering depth and refraction of light. To top it off, we've used black hardware and red pickups to complete Richies signature look.
As with all GTR models, these instruments are built in partnership with our friends at World Musical Instrument Co.
