The LTD Volsung is the Signature Series guitar from Lars Frederiksen of the iconic punk rock band Rancid. Based on the ESP Viper body style, the Volsung is even more streamlined, keeping the guitar’s light weight ideal for energy-filled live shows and long recording/writing/jamming sessions. Lars chose the Danish Camo Satin finish as a nod to his own familial roots from Denmark. Its three-piece thin U-shaped mahogany neck is exceptionally smooth and fast, and it features a set of special pickups customized by Lars from Seymour Duncan that are only available on the Volsung. It also features set-neck construction for fast and smooth access to the highest frets, as well as an ebony 24-fret fingerboard, Gotoh tuners, and TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece. The LTD Volsung also offers a unique three-control configuration, with individual knobs for each pickup’s volume plus a tone control.
