Master Builder

NY-SS

Royal tone. Featuring the same exceptional body design as our EX-SS, the NY-SS Master Builder is a single cutaway semi-hollow standout, hand-crafted at home in New York City. Tailored specifically for the player who values both crisp tone and light-weight comfort, the 15"-wide SS brings massive sound despite its size. Brand new, vintage machine-wound DA-101 custom humbuckers designed by ThroBak bring elevated clarity and just enough heat to highlight every note. With a rosewood fingerboard for maximum sustain and our Stairstep tailpiece for ideal string tension and stability, the NY-SS sounds how it looks: stunning.
