U.S. Masters Hornet
The Hornet's MapleCore neck has a mahogany skin over a quartersawn rock maple interior that runs the length of the neck.
It is reinforced with a carbon fiber structure and is adjustable with a 2-way truss rod. The neck is designed to be strong, rigid and stable, so it stays in tune, will remain straight and true, and to maintain adjustment even with wide shifts in temperature or humidity.
U.S. Masters' Interlocking Set-Neck Joint is another proprietary feature of the Advanced Set-Neck design of their new Hornet guitar. The neck and body mechanically interlock in 3 dimensions with the greatest amount of direct surface contact between neck and body of any set-neck joint they know of, according to U.S. Masters.
U.S. Masters' Hornet is equipped withAmerican-made Sperzel Locking tuning machines, German fretwire, a Graph Tech Black Tusq XL nut, and Tone Pros Locking bridge and tailpiece. The standard pickups are U.S. Masters' V2 custom humbucker set which provide greater articulation and extended response while also providing more flexibility in tailoring your sound. The Hornet features a mahogany body and a 24-3/4" scale, 22 fret bound ebony fingerboard with a 12" radius. It is available in a wide range of high-end quality high gloss finishes.
