Introduction The "Exotic Maple" showcases exceptional patterns. Among the most popular woods used for guitars, maple wood is highly prevalent. However, in the secret project of the Asuka factory, we have chosen the "Exotic Maple," which features unique patterns different from flame or quilted maple.
The "Brown Burst" finish and the use of gold hardware unify the guitar, creating a luxurious look that stands out while maintaining a warm ambiance. The fingerboard is crafted from "Wenge," a wood known for its fine grain and exceptional strength and hardness compared to maple wood. By incorporating Wenge into the fingerboard, a stable and clear sound is achieved. Due to its stunning appearance, Wenge has long been used in Europe as a luxury material for furniture.
Adopting the HSH style by Mojotone®, made in the USA. At the bridge position, we have chosen the "Classic Hot Humbucker" model, a humbucker type. By adding a modern touch to the traditional humbucker, we have slightly emphasized the bass and adjusted the sustain for longer notes. The coils are wound asymmetrically, with a different number of turns between the two coils, enhancing harmonics and response in the high frequencies. This results in a clear and precise sound both in clean and overdriven tones, with powerful bass and rich sustain.
At the middle position, we have installed a "Classic Strat®" pickup designed to produce a clear sound with precise definition. We have retained the classic specifications and precisely measured the pole distance for each position to achieve an optimal balance between sound quality and volume.
Momose's flagship series, the "Modern Virtuoso Series," incorporates the term "Virtuoso," reflecting the idea of a master or virtuoso in music. We have incorporated the specifications required in the contemporary world, where everyone can express and share their music, thanks to Momose's unique interpretation. The hardware has also been redesigned, with the addition of Hipshot® Glip-Lock machineheads and the new GOTOH® 510T-FE1 bridge, offering excellent tremolo capability.
