So here it is....the New Invicta Prototype. These will be available in the January 2014 timeframe.

Image

Image

Logo is a tad off on this Proto...that's been addressed already.

Image

Tone Pros Bridge/Tailpiece

Image

Multiply Tortoise Binding...Body/HS and Neck. 5-way Rotary
1:Neck Bucker
2:Rear Coil of each pup
3:Both Buckers
4:Front Coil of each pup
5:Bridge Bucker
Amaltifano Designed Pups.

Image

Rosewood Board with real MOP Blocks and nice Jumbo frets.

Image

This thing gets so many sounds. Neck Volume; Bridge Volume and Master Tone knobs, in pos 2 & 4 you can roll off 1 volume and get the single coil.

Ash Body with a Maple neck and top. 8.5 schweet pounds...I love it!!

Gorgeous piece of work....logo is dead center, looks like treble machine alignment is what's off there to me.

Very nice!

I believe JD is correct on the treble machine alignment in regard to the engraved logo - (I like it);

No pics of the back?

Not sure on the coils.................Gene/Mick/Ben would need to answer that.

This is an Anniversary present from my wife.

Here is the only back shots I have uploaded.

Wow, love it.

I really want to see it with a tortoise shell pickguard and abalone inlays.

Great idea for the electronics, what a great choice.

Hey Wayne, Here's some pub for your new axe :) It made it into a few photo shoots. Here's one from a feature MMR did on us. Small photo on the cover, and a pretty good image of it in the article. Here's the link if you would like to check it out: http://digitaleditiononline.com/publication/?i=177417

I was told only the 2 Proto's have the Ratio's.............the Omega's have the Tone Pros Klusons, so I would not be surprised to see those on the Street Version.
