Hot off the successful launch of the Omega
guitar in the spring, Electra Guitars
announce the latest addition to its guitar line-up: The Omega Prime
. The Omega Prime embodies the same single-cutaway, solid body design as the original Omega, and is geared for the modern player, with a number of exciting new looks.
The Omega Prime will initially be available in a stunning assortment of wood, color, and hardware combinations: Ceruse, Flame Maple, White with Gold, and Black with Gold. It retains the iconic Electra Guitars' "Wave" headstock, and player-friendly features such as a sculpted heel, for easier fret board access, and a belly cut for comfort.
The Ceruse, White, and Black Omega Primes have a vintage C-shaped neck that sports an all ebony fret board with Jumbo nickel/silver frets, genuine Mother of Pearl Block inlays, and a GraphTech Tusq nut. The Flame Maple has a maple fretboard with tortoise block inlays.
