Ltd Nergal-6 Black Satin (2018)
Nergal is the founder and frontman of the highly influential Polish metal band Behemoth, and his LTD Nergal-6 is a guitar that exemplifies his band’s dark sound. A single-cutaway design based on the ESP Eclipse, the Nergal-6 offers a mahogany body and a set-thru, three-piece mahogany neck at 24.75” scale, finished in Black Satin with black binding on the body, neck and headstock and complementary black hardware. The Nergal-6 has an ebony fingerboard with glow-in-the-dark side markers and the Behemoth “Trinity” logo over the 12th fret. The sound of the Nergal-6 is powered by a pair of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups. Use the push-pull tone pot to access two different voicings of the pickups. Push down for “Modern Active” tone or pull up for “Modern Passive Attack”. This model utilizes a standard 9V battery.
Original and totally re-imagined, Fishman Fluence pickups are free from the hum, noise and frustrating inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire-wound pickups — revealing pure, uncorrupted and musical tone.
Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker Alnico
All the musicality, power and explosiveness of alnico. Full chords and fluid solos, plus a voice you’ve never heard in a humbucker. Great in both positions, or commonly paired with a ceramic bridge pickup.
Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker Ceramic
Cutting ceramic attack. Brutal active aggression and passive punch in the same guitar. Great in both positions, or commonly paired with alnico neck.
Each Fishman Fluence pickup has two distinct and useful sounds on-board. These sounds start with the revolutionary Fluence Core, the heart of Fluence tone. From this Fluence Core we then create the classic timbres and tone — colors you expect from great guitar pickups — as well as some you’ve never expected.
All Fishman Fluence Pickups
Are Multi-Voice. Set and forget, or wire-up to toggle between two musically complimentary voices. Drop right in and replace standard humbucker pickups. Are rechargeable on your guitar. Optional lithium-ion battery pack offers weeks, not hours, of playing time.
MACASSAR EBONY FRETBOARD
Macassar Ebony (Diospyros celebica), derives it’s name from the Makassar, the main seaport of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. It is endemic to the island and attains heights of 20 metres. Macassar Ebony is quartersawn, this means that it is more stable and less prone to cracking than African and Indian Ebony. As a tonewood, Macassar Ebony has been described to produce instruments with a clear, loud sound. It’s providing a slightly dark and woody overtone content with a low to mid end predominance- much like Indian Rosewood!
