Updated with an awesome new Distressed Black Satin finish, the LTD Volsung is the Signature Series guitar from Lars Frederiksen of the iconic punk rock band Rancid. Based on the ESP Viper body style, the Volsung is even more streamlined, keeping the guitar's light weight ideal for energy-filled live shows and long recording/writing/jamming sessions. Its three-piece thin U-shaped mahogany neck is exceptionally smooth and fast, and it features Lars' signature passive EMG pickup set, the LF-DMF. This pickup set features a ceramic magnet in the bridge for excellent articulation, and an Alnico V in the neck for punchy, in-your-face midrange. It also features set-neck construction for fast and smooth access to the highest frets, as well as an ebony 24-fret fingerboard with glow in the dot side markers, Gotoh tuners, and TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece. The LTD Volsung also offers a unique three-control configuration, with individual knobs for each pickup's volume plus a tone control.
