[NAMM] Carvin Alland Holdsworth Headless Guitars
Carvin has announced the Allan Holdsworth HH series of headless guitars.
The guitars were developed in response to Holdsworth's request for a compact, headless version of his H2 and HF2 Fatboy guitars.
The single-pickup HH1 and dual-pickup HH2 guitars feature a chambered alder body with a white birch top and Eastern hard rock maple set neck. The chambered body and headless design are designed to make the HH Series guitars light, weighing in at 5.5 pounds. A JCustom Headless Research hardtail bridge with fine tuners is standard, and a JCustom XS-Trem tremolo system with fine tuners is optional.
Body and neck woods, including mahogany, walnut, swamp ash and koa are available, along with AAAA flamed/quilted maple, flamed koa, figured claro walnut, burled maple and spalted flamed maple top woods. A 25.5” scale ebony fingerboard with white dot inlays, medium jumbo nickel-silver frets and a semi-flat 20” radius are standard. Multiple neck options are available, including fingerboards woods; fretwire materials & sizes; dot, block, diamond and Signature inlays in abalone and mother-of-pearl; and gloss, satin and tung-oiled back-of-neck finishes.
Various finishes are offered, including standard solid colors, optional metallic and translucent stains, and deep triple step finishes on flamed and quilted maple. Electronics consist of Carvin’s Allan Holdsworth Signature H22 humbuckers, with a mini-switch pickup selector on the HH2.
