The modern metal music scene is very alive with more variety, bands and talented players than ever. The more skilful a guitarist becomes, the more aware he or she can become of the importance of eliminating all possible technical obstacles set by the instrument. Ideally – as the player feeds the guitar with energy, the guitar must respond with precision, without latency.

Not all players need such effortless access high up on the neck as the Hellcat Artist offers. But some do. And when you do need to put the pedal to the metal, there’s nothing stopping you with the deeply sculpted Artist neck-thru-body joint.

The Artist body and neck are made of super responsive spanish cedar. You can choose the top yourself from our thermo treated arctic

birch wood library. You can also select the fretboard from our familiar choice: rosewood, ebony, thermo treated arctic birch an thermo treated maple.

We’re a fully equipped custom shop with tons of options, ready to fulfil your guitar fantasies – learn more about our options from the specifications section of this website.
