New Model: The Inferno V2



Hi everyone!

It's that time again! New model day!

So this one is not so much a brand spanking new build but more of an evolution of an one of our previous builds, The Inferno.

After a lot of feedback and a look back at a few things we decided to change certain aspects of that build to make it better reflect the kind of aesthetic we've been striving for so far.

All in all we're very pleased with what we've come up with and think it gives the Inferno a nice update and redesign. This guitar is all about big statements and big sounds (think wall of Marshall stacks big) and with a great help from Craig at Axesrus® who supplied us with a couple of custom order pickups to make it happen! More info on these and the full specs near the bottom of the post!

Here is a quick overview on the two custom pups we put in this build!


This is the prototype to what later became the Wraith Humbucker. This little beasty puts out 15k resistance with some oversized ceramic magnets!

Suffice to say this really packs a punch and gives the Inferno V2 the massive arena sound we were looking for!


The 2nd pickup we ordered was a single coil version of their "Laudanum" humbucker. We Loved the sound of the Laudanum but wanted one scaled down into a single coil to fit in the middle position for the Inferno V2. Here is the result!




Hope you enjoyed seeing this new build! Any questions or comments please leave here or drop us an email! Also be sure to follow us on Facebook for all the latest news and ramblings!
