The Madtown® Gravelcaster offers up an impressive host of solutions for the modern player. It sports our custom neck profile and wider nut width, 12"-14" hybrid compound fingerboard radius and 22 frets while the Skidplate and sculpted rear body contour system provides for a much greater level of upper register fingerboard access and player comfort than has ever been offered before on an electric guitar.
Gravelcaster bodies are typically crafted with a solid 1 or 2 piece select body with the occasional 2 piece book-matched select figured top. Species include Swamp Ash, Black Limba, Mahogany, and Alder. When capped, tops will be primarily maple, but we have a varied stash and supply, so expect a variety.
Necks are typically crafted of hard eastern maple with maple or rosewood fingerboards and fretted with Jescar 47104 nickel silver wire and hidden tangs. Solid 1/4 inch thick fingerboards have a unique compound 12-14" radius. Black or clay dot inlays, and luminescent side dot inlays. 25.5” scale and Madtown's custom C profile, measuring .812” at the first fret and .895” at the 12th. Fitted with a genuine bone nut with a nut width of 1.725", 22 fret and a spoke style, two-way adjustable rod.
The Gravelcaster is offered in our special thin satin/semi-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finishes. These finishes characteristics will vary depending on color. Expect to find variety from occasional checks in warm and inviting natural tones to heavily checked-lightly aged blondes and solid colors, as well as gloss.
The tuning machines are nickel Gotoh. The bridge is stainless Callaham with brass or stainless compensated saddles. Nickel strap buttons . Custom Madtown® serialized nickel control plates and Skidplates are standard equipment on all Madtown® Gravelcaster Guitars.
