The Madtown® Gravelcaster offers up an impressive host of solutions for the modern player. It sports our custom neck profile and wider nut width, a 10"-16" compound fingerboard radius and 22 frets. The custom Madtown control plates are designed to give the player more room between the switch and knob, 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.
The Gravelcaster bodies are crafted with a solid 1 or 2 piece select body with an occasional book-matched select figured top. Species include Swamp Ash, Black Limba, Mahogany, and Alder.
Standard necks are crafted of hard eastern maple with maple or rosewood fingerboards and fretted with Jescar 47104 or 51110 nickel silver fret wire with hidden tangs. Solid 1/4" inch thick fingerboards have a compound 10-16" radius. Black or clay dot inlays. 25.5” scale length 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 width of 1.725". 22 frets and a spoke style, two-way adjustable rod. Birdseye Maple, Red Leaf Maple and other species available.
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 finishes.
