Ultra Luddite

This instrument has long been a temptation here at Specimen. Naturally falling in the footsteps after the Super Luddite, the Ultra is kind of a simultaneous tribute to Eddie Van Halen and Robert Johnson.

I have to say that I have always had a negative attitude toward Floyd Rose Vibrato Systems. Everyone knows they are persnickety and repair technicians generally regard them as a nuisance to work on. However, most people also freely admit that if you want to wail and shred, no other system will do (or at least not so readily).

Here we have the combination of this Floyd Rose System with Specimen's sublime non-adjustable steel reinforced neck joining the body at a very sensible 12th fret marker. One might not predict the splendor of the results. I was simply amazed when I played this instrument for the first time. If you get over the lack of access up into the "nether" regions of the scale, and listen objectively, you will hear things heretofore unheard.

This instrument tends to separate the ranks when posted on web blogs and caused quite a stir on our Facebook page.
