While the Invader bridge might look like its mean and vicious, it soundswell, mean and vicious. The Invader neck, on the other hand, looks just as intimidating, but sounds surprisingly warm and smooth. The ceramic magnets add depth and clarity while the large hex caps deliver smooth string-to-string balance. Playing one is a surprising experience and will have you composing melodic lines that you didnt know you had in you. Match with the Invader bridge model for a massive sounding high-output setup.Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Invader uses a three large ceramic bar magnets, oversized metal oxide poles, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
