The PS2012R features a mahogany body with a carved raised center and a 3 ply aged white/black/white pickguard with aged Starfire logo. The mahogany set neck has a bound ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and custom pearl/abalone split block inlays. The reverse headstock is accentuated by a similarly shaped trussrod cover with aged Starfire logo. An aged nickel Tone Pros tune-o-matic bridge is combined with a custom aged tailpiece machined from solid aluminum for ultimate tone transfer and sustain. A bone nut adds sustain and helps prevent string binding. Premium aged nickel Grover 18:1 tuners provide smooth, stable tuning and the Buzz Feiten Tuning System ensures perfect musical intonation.
The Seymour Duncan SM-3 mini humbuckers were chosen for their ability to produce a sparkling clean vintage tone yet have the output to drive the front end of classic amps into full overdrive and sonic nirvana. A 3-way selector switch and separate tone and volume controls provide a wide palette of selectable tones.
