This is one of our infamous Coppertop Hypemachines!
The copper is a real sheet of copper, aged using our proprietary process via heat, exposure to extreme cold, and a variety of chemicals and pigments. It is then sealed to protect the finish. You can feel the texture in the finish, although it is not intrusive at all when playing. You'll find it hard to not want to continually touch the top, and feel it's texture :)
Our Hypemachine range is chambered for weight relief. This is a light weight instrument. When calculated correctly, chambers can not only reduce the weight of an instrument, but add a nice mid range boost tonally. The secret to chambering, is to not allow unwanted feedback to mix back into the signal, creating that high pitched squeel you often hear with semi hollow guitars.
SPECIAL NOTES: Machined Alloy backplates identify this as one of our CustomShop handmade instruments.
