We built this Hydra specifically at Holger’s request. After Holger visited us in the workshop and tried everything we had in stock in the showroom, it quickly became clear: the Hydra is his thing, something is needed that meets exactly his requirements for his perfect guitar. Said and done! Holger has chosen a beautiful quilted maple top to adorn his Hydra. Since it should be particularly light and resonant, we have chosen a nice, light piece of Cedro for the body. Sonically and botanically related to mahogany, it has a much lower density. The floating ABM 5200 tremolo delivers a beautifully balanced tone with brilliant overtones and is also very tuning stable thanks to the locking tuners. The two DiMarzio Titan deliver very nice split sounds with the 5-way Megaswitch P and are fully activated in positions 1 and 5 for a hearty rock sound. Our proven neck joint with the M6 stainless steel screws ensure fast response and best sustain. For a velvety and natural feel, we opted for an oil and wax finish.
