Nova

The Nova was designed to fill the role of a full bodied, single-cut, for those that are most at home with LP style guitars. I’ve built quite a few Novas, over the last few years and they are always a pleasure to make. They have a nice, solid feel and are great for cranking out big riffs. The body size is a little smaller than the average single-cut but they still have a re-assuring presence and tone.
One of my Nova builds is currently being played by Dan Weir of Hell’s Addiction, he’s done a great job at showing off what the guitar can do, so please have a look at their page if you want to see one of these builds in action.
