The Hyperion reverse headstock maximizes proper benefits of string length vs. tension. That is, longer length on bass string yields a tighter feel and stronger fundamental whereas the shorter length on the treble strings facilitates ease of bending and allows the player to use a heavier gauge string for stronger tones. The Mezmer reverse slotted headstock design is an innovative solution to the usual flipped headstock problem of uncomfortable access to tuners, with the Mezmer 6 on a side slotted style, a player can reach over quickly to make tuning adjustments during a performance with ease.
The back of the neck is finished with Danish Oil and has the feel of a broken-in vintage classic. The headstock and heel are finished in Nitro Cellulose lacquer.
The unique and innovative contours of the Hyperion body were conceived with many features in mind. The upper horn provides perfect balance point for a strap in standing position as well as a comfortable support to lean into when in seated positions. The lower bout extends the control cavity for progressive electronic expansion as well as providing wood mass behind the bridge which helps to give the guitar a strong midrange voice and a particularly warm growl when pushing amplifier gain.

* The Lindy Fralin p-92 is an amazing take on the p-90 style single coil masterfully executed with the split coil humbucking design. These pickups are amazing! In the middle position both pickups can be adjusted by their individual volumes yielding an incredible pallette of tones. A Sprague Orange drop cap was used for the Tone pot which provides an optimal range of high frequency attenuation.
