THE MADTOWN® GRAVELCASTER

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.
