We set out to define a true metallers guitar at a great price. We have used Korean Wilkinson Humbuckers (not the Chinese one's usually sold on eBay) and have added Wilkinson EZ-Lok™ Locking Tuners. What you end up with is an amazing Metal players guitar - the bridge pickup generates a massive sound with 15K ohm resistance! We decided on a body matched headstock to improve the overall look. The body is made up of just 3 pieces of basswood and a one-piece maple neck and rarely found on a guitar at this price - a bone nut.
To ensure maximum playability, every guitar shipped will have been professionally set up with D'Addario Strings. The cost of this is normally £40 plus the cost of strings.

The Guitar Emporium Stock Storage
All of The Guitar Emporium instruments have been stored at room temperature since having been landed in the UK for a period of 2 months before being set-up. Room temperature does not drop below 17° Centigrade (64° F) nor rise above 28° Centigrade (82° F). If they have been set-up and stored they will have been de-tuned (to protect neck adjustment) with silica gel packs added to the box to avoid any condensation. Those that arrive to you in tune will have been set-up and shipped within 3 days so will not have the gel in the box. This is how guitars have been packed and stored since the 1950s. This attention to packing and storage is generally only with guitars retailing at more than GBP1000.
