The coalescence guitar represents a merging of vintage styling with modern features, such as active pickups, an all access neck joint and 24 frets.
Aimed at the modern rock/metal guitarist it features a single coil EMG SA at the neck combined with an EMG 89 at the bridge. The 89 was chosen as it can be split, giving the option of having two single coils (via the push pull pot) as the original J style guitars were.
The neck is laminated for improved strength and stability – it is a 5 piece construction of Black Limba and Maple which creates a lovely harmony with the solid Black Limba body. The fretboard is an old favourite of mine – Brazilian Kingwood with 24 frets for extended range. An all access neck joint ensures every fret is within easy reach and not obstructed by the more typical blocky looking affair.
The hardware is by Gotoh in black to complete the guitars imposing aesthetic.

Coalescence 7 String Guitar
This Coalescence guitar features all the switching of the traditional Jaguar except with an extra string for some more low end growl!
The body is one piece of Alder and finished in Satin black giving the guitar a tough look. The headstock face is also painted to match and the neck is carbon fibre reinforced to help with stability and the added tension of the extra string. The Ebony fretboard has 24 frets and is from Crelicam (responsibly harvested Ebony).
The pickups are a Kent Armstrong Super Distortion at the bridge and a Rocker at the neck, these together with the switching make a very versatile sounding guitar.
For the hardware there is a locking Tone Pros bridge and tailpiece which means no more bridges dropping off when you change strings!
