"earth-shatteringly cool" - The Guitar Magazine There's something magical about a wrap-bridge and a pair of great P90s that can only be experienced - top that combo off with a timeless Piano Black Nitrocellulose finish, small block inlays, and a bound body, fretboard, and headstock and you can be sure that this FBGC Arcade Model will impress listeners and lookers alike!
The Arcade Model is the Frank Brothers take on a classic Solid-Body electric that lets you access a ton of vintage tones in a new retro-inspired form.
Seymour Duncan Antiquity P90s are some of the most accurate vintage reproductions P90's we've come across and pair beautifully with the MojoAxe Compensated Wrap Bridge and genuine mahogany neck and body.
Amazing playability, flawless craftsmanship, and knock-out aesthetics will endear you even further - this Arcade is bound to be the most addictive guitar you've played.
About the Pickups Specially calibrated alnico 2 bar magnets, and a custom coil wind deliver the gritty, vintage correct growl of an early 50s Les Paul bridge pickup. Chords have a warm but sparkly midrange grit, and single notes jump out nicely without sounding harsh. When you remove the soapbar cover, you'll find the same hand fabricated bobbin, plain enamel mag wire, and flatback tape that was made in Kalamazoo during the early days.
