Ace of Spades SM-1

Available for immediate shipping 


This incredibly light (6.15lbs) beast is #002 of only two made to date.  This guitar has been one of our house guitars for exhibition since built in July 2016 and was one of our main display guitars at NAMM 2017 receiving substantial press coverage.


The guitar features scorched, Mahogany with hand-carved aluminum "Ace" centerplate, bounded by custom embedded mini-spades screw rivets and hand-distressed nickel hardware.

The aluminum side-fretboard binding with patented ToneLayer construction makes for a super smooth, fast neck.  And the incredible Arcane Triple Clone Humbuckers provide the tonal clone of a vintage P.A.F. Pickup but on the higher output end of the scale, over wound and beefed up, perfectly touch sensitive - when you hit it hard it responds.
