EX-X Green Machine
The body of this one is white limba (korina), with an extremely light mahogany neck, which eliminates the classic neck-dive problem.
The neck’s laminated for stability, composed of three pieces and has a scarfed head with a reduced tilt angle for additional strength over the traditional method. A two-way trussrod is also used, which needs far less wood removing from the critical head/neck area.
Fretboard is zebrano (zebrawood) and wears medium jumbo Jescar Evo Gold frets and the signature dot inlay pattern.
The finish is a custom-mixed satin olive green based on a NATO colour used on military vehicles. It’s 2k, or two-pack.
The black plastics have been satinised to match, and there is a black Tusq nut and all-black hardware – Gotoh, CTS, Switchcraft, with Seymour Duncan JB pickup.
