Introducing, a new set of RSM series models will be coming this December!
The newcomers are two different -TACTICS- models, one of our most popular models! Let’s take a closer look at them.
What is "Roasted Maple"?
Roasted maple is a special treatment that heats the maple material at a high temperature to quickly volatilize the water and oils that resides inside the wood. As a result, the water and oil that normally escape over time are all removed from the get-go, artificially creating the stability of a neck on a vintage guitar. In addition, the rigidity of the wood is improved, and chances for problems in the neck are reduced. In terms of sound, you also get a nice development as if it was a vintage guitar. This results in a sound with a moderate attack to it.
As you would expect for this series’ name, we “roast”, or more accurately, treat the maple at very high temperatures, which gives us as a result its unique browned look. For our Global series models, we actually use Flame maple, giving us, as a result, an even better and more luxurious looking neck.
Point 1：Gorgeous flame maple body top
The body top is made of flame maple with a beautiful grain and is used for the top to give it a luxurious feel like a high-end model.
The coloring lineup will consist of two see-through colors that make the most out of the materials’ grain. The two available colors are, ST-CHG (see-through charcoal gray) and the vivid ST-SFG (see-through surf green).
Point 2：24-Fret design + Jumbo frets
This will be our first ever 24-fret TACTIC series models!
Also, we are using stainless steel jumbo-sized frets, which are ideal if you want to go for highly technical performances that make heavy use of the higher frets or choking.
Point 3：Heel cut design that greatly improves playability
A heel cut design is incorporated into the joint part to facilitate the playability of the higher frets, to compliment the 24-fret design. The shape of the heel cut is also very comfortable in general and has enough space for your hand to move to the higher frets without a problem.
Point 4：Double Humbucker pickup layout
In terms of sound, it has a 2-humbucker specification, and powerful sound that will be a great fit for anyone from hard leads to technical solo players
Point 5：Lock machine heads that improve tuning stability & Stud tremolo unit
Ready for anyone going for technical performance, equipped with lock machine heads and a 2-stud tremolo unit. This provides amazing tuning stability and gives a modern look.
Point 1：Ash body with a good attack
By using ash material for the body, combined with the roasted flame maple neck a good attack and sharp sound is achieved.
Point 2：Elbow and back contour that adjusts to your body
In the TACTICS-ASH / RSM, the body back is contoured in order to provide a much more comfortable playing experience.
Point 3：Powerful sound P-90 Type neck pickup
The front pickup is equipped with a "P-90 type" pickup that has a higher output than a normal single-coil pickup. Therefore, the sound of the front pickup is thicker, and the sound character of the rear pickup is clearly separated, making it a model that can be used in a wider range of genres.
Point 4：4 Different color options
We have a lineup of 4 see-through colors so that you can really take in the wood grain of the ash body. The colors that we picked this time are BD (blond), WBD (white blond), blue STB (see-through blue), and black STN (see-through night). So please pick your favorite and give these amazing models a try!
