The top, back and headstock are all copper plate and have been engraved with one of a kind custom artwork. On the front bass side we have Anubis (ancient Egyptian god of the dead), on the treble side a Pyramid and Cobra scene and below the bridge we have a Scarab beetle. On the back there is a large engraving of Anubis looking menacing!

The neck is Ash to match the one piece chambered body and features a jet black Ebony fretboard with gold EVO frets, two brass obelisk inlays and a Pyramid at the 12th fret.

The pickups are made by Bare Knuckle, it has a Cobra single coil at the neck and a Black Hawk at the bridge. The humbucker is also wired to a coil tap, so can be split to sound like a single coil, to match the neck. 


Hardware is by Schaller with a 3D bridge and Da Vinci tuners, which tie in with all the brass and gloss black finish.

Working with metal and the artist was a great experience and we are looking forward to making more engraved guitars/basses in the future. So let us know if you have a particular theme for the engraving in mind.

Please remember, any of our models can be specified with a different number of strings, scale length, frets, pickups or anything else for that matter! Also we offer the option for you to design your very own unique guitar or bass with your own body shape and specifications.
