I posted about the announcement of the new Fred Brum signature Jaden Rose 8 string Mantis during Winter NAMM 2014. Here Fred demonstrates the prototype.
– swamp ash body
– maple neck, pau ferro fingerboard, 27 jumbo stainless steel frets
– Bareknuckle Warpig (alnico set)
– Hipshot bridge and tuners
– volume and pickup switch, middle position feature pickups’ inner coils.
There will be a “non-signature” version of the guitar available as well to accommodate different specs. “…in spite of this being “my” shape and me getting nothing for it, I wanted people to be able to access it outside my spec sets.” – Fred Brum.
