Since the 1950's, California car culture has heavily influenced guitar finishes. The Frost series is our take on the current "Matte finish" trend. This finish has an uneven, textured surface which deflects light at different angles, causing it to appear matte. Never satisfied with the norm, we developed a custom combination of matte and pearlescent paints to create an entirely new optical effect - "where matte meets shimmer."
Equipped to Perform
The Modern body shape, 24 stainless steel frets, Gotoh 510 bridge and Hipshot locking tuners equip the Modern Frost™ to be sleek and stable. The nickel-chrome appointments serve to accentuate the Frost finish. The combination of SSV & SSH+ pickups produces versatile tones. From high gain solos, to warm clean rhythms, and everything in between, the Modern Frost™ defies genre.
The Alder body produces clear, full-bodied sounds with beefy mids and excellent lows. The Maple neck lends stability, is strong in the midrange and has a sweet spanky high end. The Pau Ferro fingerboard adds percussive attack with excellent clarity to complete this versatile instrument.
The Modern Frost™ represents the latest chapter in a rich history of automobile inspired guitar finishes. With it’s unique asymmetrical shape and sleek contours, our Modern body shape is an obvious choice to pair with this new finish. Contact your dealer to reserve your favorite color today!
