Continuing our tradition of Artist Alliances we have teamed up with legendary Heavy Metal & Hard Rock artist and producer Sascha Paeth to create a unique instrument specially designed for high-speed/high-gain use.
Sascha's work as a producer of countless Heavy Albums in the past decades and his role as the lead guitarist for Avantasia had a profound influence on this project.
The Alliance Series Sascha Paeth is a solidbody construction made from Ayous featuring improved "SuperFly" access to the upper frets of the one-piece hardrock maple neck.
It is fitted with our Chrunchbucker Humbucker in the bridge position - a choice easily made by Sascha being an experienced user of our Starplayer Special model. In contrast, the Domino P90 in the neck position delivers creamy response and cleans up nicely if needed.
We made this Alliance Series even more versatile by adding a few extra controls to the pickguard. A Killswitch allows you to instantly kill the signal for the famous "machine-gun" effect and a small dial lets you preset the volume for only the neck pickup. This enables you to set a clean tone for the neck pickup while being on full distortion on the bridge pickup.
The Alliance Series Sascha Paeth is a solid-body guitar made from Ayous. It is specifically fine-tuned for high-gain use and features our new SuperFly neck heel for easy upper fret access. Artificial snake skin.
Fitted with our CrunchBucker pickup in the bridge position for proper high-gain performance. This pickup gives a fatter, more saturated tone which still remains warm and defined. Paired with our versatile Domino P90.
A Plek'd fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our fret polishing and setup work all done by hand that eventually makes our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.
