This is the original XXL guitar model! A single cut-away mahogany top and back and a softwood core having engineered tone chambers make for a very light and responsive guitar body. Add a multi-laminated maple neck anchored in a neck pocket via four inserts and corresponding fasteners and you get the recipe for a basic XXL that you can wear painlessly for hours of shows or session recording.
Many XXL U2 sport a Bigsby tailpiece and two P-90s from master pick-up builder Jason Lollar to yield a tone machine recognized by Pro players in North-America.
Every XXL U2 is provided with Finefrets made right here in our shop. The semi-hemispherical fret ends are so great to look at and so gentle on your fretting hand, you will not believe it!
The versatility of the U2 is undeniable. One can shift from jazz to rock at the flick of a pickup selector switch! The optional varitone system can save your neck in case of pedalboard failure, allowing you to dial a band pass filter as if it was a passive compressor. Match it with mild distortion and the stage is yours!
Like all XXL custom level guitars, the U2 now comes with standard top, back and neck bindings and with a high gloss finish.
If you order one, we will make it just for you but this takes time. However, we have some for sales right now. To see which ones are to sell, check out our flickr page!
