Sleek, Lightweight Mahogany Body Offers Resonant Tone and Playing Comfort

The Volsung's mahogany body construction keeps the guitar lightweight and comfortable for extended playing sessions, whether you're recording in the studio or rocking out live. Its sleek, streamlined Viper shape also lends to playing ease. Underneath its punk rock façade, the Volsung's resonance sustains your notes with richness. The mahogany build resonates wonderfully, letting your creative riffs ring true. Enjoy fluid playing and dynamic tone night after night.

22-Fret Macassar Ebony Fingerboard Maximizes Sweet Spot

With its 22-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard, the Volsung provides ample room to explore those wailing solo licks and intricate riffs. The extra two frets over most guitars with a 24.75" scale length maximize the tonal sweet spot, putting expressive bends and vibratos right at your fingertips. Jumbo frets make string bending a breeze while Luminlay side dots keep you oriented on dark stages. Take your playing into exhilarating new territory.

EMG LF-DMF Humbucking Pickups Provide Punchy Tones and Articulate Sound

With EMG LF-DMF humbucking pickups, the Volsung serves excellent note separation and midrange punch essential for punk rock tone. The bridge pickup's ceramic magnet articulates each palm-muted chord with tight precision. Switch to the neck pickup and its Alnico V magnet provides warm yet present mids. Having individual volume knobs for each pickup makes it easy to blend their voices to your liking. The master tone knob rounds off treble spikes for the ideal mix of articulation and snarl.

Three-Knob Control Layout Offers Individual Pickup Volume Control

The Volsung keeps controls straightforward yet flexible with volume knobs for each pickup and a master tone knob. Want more articulation? Turn up the bridge volume. Need some beefy mids? Crank the neck pickup volume. The tone knob shapes treble response across both pickups. Dial in the perfect tone balance on the fly to match your band's live set or studio session needs.
