First of all, the number 3 was the foundation of this instrument - the number that defines most of the aesthetics in the world. Three different wood species were used to craft the instrument. Each of them came from 3 different continents. The sapele, ebony and Lithuanian maple form the neck-through construction.
Custom inlays construct the number 3 Jack White signature. The instrument has 25.5" scale. Incorporated are 3 boutique vintage sounding Haeussel mini humbuckers which have many tone possibilities, including split function and 6 way toggle switch.
And the aluminum! The idea to use it for the contour is one of Lava Drops signature marks. 3 mm of aluminum reinforce the instrument with longer note sustain and more vibration. Woods and metals twist into the final and unique tone. The three colours twist into the unique looks:
- Blue: the deep inspirational dive of creativity, opening new horizons of unlimited passion in combination with the rare book-matched flamed maple top
