New Nova Build: Denim Micarta


This is our latest Nova build. We made this one to be a fan-fret 7 string with a micarta top, made from resin and denim fabric. This was a bit of an experiment but it came out much better than we could have hoped.
The micarta method retains the strength of the resin with the flexibility of the cloth, making this a very durable and strong material. We’ll be experimenting with other colours and fabrics as time goes on. We think this has a lot of potential for creating some interesting aesthetics.
We loaded this Nova with a set of our custom Oil City pickups, Schaller tuners and Hipshot mono-saddle bridge pieces.
