Pleiades is a new VC Guitars design, and the most elaborate project we’ve done to date. The line consists of 7 models based on the same body contour. Click here for the full story on Pleiades.
Maia is the first of the Pleiades line, and is based on one of the earliest solidbody electric guitars. Featuring a bolt-on neck design and vintage-style 3-saddle bridge design, this tone machine can go anywhere from jazz to rock.
Below is a list of ‚standard’ specs, but being a custom guitar company, we offer extensive custom work. Get in touch to design your custom guitar with us!
We chose Alcyone to be the second in the Pleiades line-up. We’re working on the prototype right now, but we can reveal some of what will be the ‚standard’ specs:
body: solid mahogany with figured maple top
neck: glued in, solid mahogany with rosewood fingerboard
pickups: 2 humbucker or single coil pickups
tune-o-matic or wraparound style bridge
Another prototype we’ve been working on lately is Antares, our very first offset body design. Antares will be available in different configurations, going from a classic JM style setup with Mastery bridge and vibrato, to a tune-o-matic bridge and Bigbsy vibrato version, or even a non-trem variant. Stay tuned for more updates as the prototype is being developed!
The Stinger model was our very first solidbody electric guitar design, and was our own interpretation of a classic double cutaway body. Made with the best materials we continue to make this model on commission. As with all our guitars, options are plentiful as we have complete control over the entire production process.
solid mahogany body with a handcarved figured maple cap, set mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, 3L/3R headstock, two pickups and a wraparound bridge. Of course, inlays, highly figured woods, choice of pickups and hardware, vibrato…all these are possible options.
