The Surunmaa design is an outline for a basic compound scale 8-string guitar over a 720mm (28,35") and 666mm (26,25") compound scaling.
Initially designed for a single soapbar pickup (EMG 40-style, Seymour Duncan soapbars, etc.) with a minimal control pattern, the Surunmaa is a guitar focused on a tight toneful low end whilst maintaining a looser top end for more expressive solo work. The bridge configuration features the recently-released Hipshot Solo bridges allowing through-body stringing to be added. The modern headstock style derives from both an 80s Japanese influence with the a more modern Parker Fly-ish slant.

The Lancaster is a traditionally-styled doublecut; hotrodded with a humbucker and mini humbucker whilst tempered with the vintage cool of a Bigsby B5!
