The Aviator Predator is an aggressive yet sleek Superstrat with unimpaired access to the even the highest frets. This specific guitar was built for the lead guitarist of the band Lost in Despair and it has seen a lot of on stage play time. The wood combination matched with Bareknuckle pickups delivers a articulate and powerful sound.
Whether it’s crushing rhythm tones, fluid solo tone or massive clean soundscapes that you want to create, the Juggernaut humbuckers deliver on every level. The Juggernaut is Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor’s signature humbucker. The pickup has been designed with Misha’s progressive playing style in mind. Along with a massive sound, the pickup has an optional distinctive ‘bulb’ design cover etch, which adds a further dimension to an already unique pickup.
The Juggernaut humbucker is designed with symmetrically hand-wound twin screw coils. It has a unique combination of massive Alnico V and ceramic VIII flankers for its engine in the bridge and a custom size Alnico V in the neck. Bass response is big and focused with lots of weight in the mids for the ultimate in definition through complex extended chord voicings. High end is rich and vocal with all of the articulation and dynamic control that Misha demands for his progressive playing style.
