In the Navigator N-LP series, at the junction of the neck and body, I adopt a deep joint with excellent strength. In addition, the neck set angle design to three times. With these, I realize tone and nuance that you have a sharp non-cloudy peculiar to a vintage, clear sense of attack by moderate tension, the rich overtones. And is not forget, reliable technology uncompromising woodworking craftsman. The first time, Navigator sound to life is is born Only with beautiful finish and is born from the work of the perseverance of the painting craftsman, the careful work of the assembly craftsman infuse soul to the instrument at the end.
The N-LP-480LTD, colored by bleaching body top surface (hard maple). In the eyes stop back material (Hong Duras mahogany), use the Red Wood Filter, we are further enhancing the tasteful texture.
