In response to the requests of many musicians the XF-120 is now available with EMG’s classic 85/81 set. For this first time these great pickups can be coupled with Blade’s proprietary VSC-3 to ensure even more tonal elasticity. Thru-body stringing adds sustain and articulation of individual notes. An East Indian rosewood fingerboard in outfitted with the distinctive X-Fire custom offset inlay pattern and the X-Fire C-profile neck feels solid and comfortable.
