INSPIRATION

Heritage

Following on from the Southland basses, named after my home country, Australia - the Great Southland, the next logical step was to go an octave higher and create an electric guitar. Going up from south, one must go higher. So, paying homage to my Scottish heritage, named after a place of rugged beauty and the legendary Loch Ness monster, I give you the Highland guitar.

THE HIGHLAND SERIES

A new legend

'Nessie' isn't the only Highland legend. It makes sense to equip a unique instrument with a unique pickup. Both are made by hands, not by machines. I was so happy with the monolithic Curtinsmith pickup, created by Scott "Stonewall" Miller, that I just had to have an electric guitar version too! The legendary P90 pickup is considered the holy grail of pickups. Now it goes to even higher levels of awesomeness in this unique, hand wound monster of a pickup.  In parallel it sounds like two P90s while in series it has a HUGE humbucker tone that you will love! Paired with a 25" scale length, this is not your ordinary Fender or Gibson clone.
