CARVES

Adding a carve to your guitar is a fantastic way to add depth to the top, which works equally well with solid colours or stained caps such as quilted or flamed maple.

We are particularly excited to present our 'Fibonacci Carve' top that is featured in the Apex Predator series. This carve makes use of Fibonacci's principle which is observed throughout nature. We also offer carved tops for our other models including The Orion, The Evolution and The Odyssey.

Naturally, we can also do one-off custom carve tops upon request.

COMFORT

A comfort bevel for your arm or ribs allows you to play your guitar longer by not putting additional stress on your main contact points. This feature is available on both acoustic and electric guitars and is a handsome addition to either.
