Orange Amplification announced its new hand built, OE-1 Guitar. Designed by Orange’s Technical Director Ade Emsley and constructed by luthier Jason Burns at Blast Cult, each guitar is made to order in London, England.
Fashioned from solid mahogany, the OE-1 is available in two-toned gold and ivory finish or a custom finish. It has an ebony fretboard with 22 frets and a custom 12” radius fretboard. The headstock and body is completed with an eye-catching chessboard nitro binding.
The guitar features a nickel, ABM, Kalamazoo, Tune-O-Matic Bridge and Stop Bar Tailpiece for each adjustment and tuning stability. The OE-1 is fitted with Grover tuners, four custom, turned brass control knobs and a robust three-way switchcraft toggle switch. A custom, clear pick guard pulls the total look and feel of the guitar together. The guitar will be supplied in a Hiscox hard case.
Construction: This guitar was constructed using the finest seasoned lightweight mahogany into a uniquely Orange body shape with a vintage inspired V to C shape neck. The body is unchambered with a set neck.
Neck: The scale length is 24.75” with 22 Dunlop jumbo frets. The Nut is made from synthetic bone with a width of 1.696”.
Headstock: The Orange logo has been carefully hand cut from mother of pearl and embedded into the dark ebony headstock for a beautiful contrasting finish.
Components: The brass control knobs match the switch tip, perfectly complementing the ivory and golden finish of the body.
Finish: The Guitar body top has been finished with a two-toned gold and ivory paint. The rear body and neck has a dark gloss coat which teases out the rich color of the mahogany. Bound with celluloid chessboard and cream binding.
Case included: Just like the custom guitar, these Hiscox cases are built from scratch to the highest quality here in the UK. Each guitar case is lightweight, tough, and hard wearing.
