Brass Inset Tailpiece

All Imperial Guitar models feautre a TonePro ABR bridge with Nylon Saddles for a sweeter tone when playing near the bridge and smoother tuning.  Our made-in-house tailpiece features a solid brass bar that has been inset into a fingerboard-matching shell adding sustain and mass to the guitar. 

Heel-less Dovetail Neck Joint

The Imperial Guitar features our unique Dovetail neck joint which provides the tone and response of a set-neck with uninhibited access to the upper frets. The heel has been carved in such a way that transitioning from the nut to the heel of the guitar is smooth and effortless.


Pickup Layout and Bridge Plate

Our unique pickup layout provides a much richer and more flexible sound pallette while still sounding familiar. By reorienting the bridge pickup and middle pickup and adding a unique iron bridge plate we've achieved a much fuller and smoother tone compared to traditional s-style guitars while still retaining all the chime and sparkle.
