Zemaitis Custom Shop MF500-LS Metal Front Electric Guitar
All metalwork including the badge, truss rod cover, pickup mount rings, tailpiece, jackplate and the rear plate are designed by Danny O'Brien and produced by hand by master engravers.
Bridge / Tailpiece
The bridge and tailpiece were designed by Tony Zemaitis for perfect intonation, ultimate sustain and tonality. Made of Duralumin and with the Zemaitis name beautifully engraved to match all of the metalwork.
Featuring DiMarzio DP103 pickups, which have a 'brushed-chrome' finish. The pickup mount rings are also made of Duralumin to complement the bridge.
Zemaitis Method Set-in Neck
The neck joint is a critical part of a top-quality guitar. Tony Zemaitis only ever used glued-in joints. He experimented with various types of set-in neck joints with the aim of achieving the best possible results and designed a special technique where the neck was set further into the body than mainstream construction methods. The Zemaitis neck joint enables the neck and body to have more surface area in contact. This increases the durability of the whole guitar as well as enhancing string vibration, tone and sustain.
