The Halo MERUS 7 with Evertune Bridge and Bare Knuckle Juggernauts is a pro-grade instrument that will hold its own whether on the stage or in the studio.
* Every Halo instrument is set up and inspected by one of our pro guitar techs in Cupertino, California prior to shipping so your guitar arrives optimized for playability: strings are fresh, frets are level, action is low, and intonation is on.
The original version of this MERUS-7 only had a Quilted Maple top. We added a Quilted Maple back and double binding to this new version.
The Evertune is an all-mechanical bridge that keeps each string perfectly in tune. It handles standard and alternate tunings equally well, and produces some of the best intonation we've ever heard.
The Juggernauts are the bestselling pickups available from Bare Knuckle. They are hand wound in the UK, and offer world-class, award-winning tone that won't disappoint.
Luminlay is the highest quality phosphorescent (glow in the dark) guitar inlay material available. We use Luminlay because they glow far brighter and far longer than the other "stuff" out there.
We took great care in designing the deep cutaway and crafting the neck/body joint for the MERUS-7. We are so happy with the result: easy access all the way up to the 24th fret.
Graphtech Black TUSQ XL nuts are precision molded and engineered for consistent tone, string balance and string spacing. Each nut is impregnated with PTFE lubricant to reduce string breakage and improve tuning stability. These nuts produce increased harmonics (clear highs and big lows) compared to bone. The material is incredibly consistent, which means no flat or dead spots. Finally, its light weight and high rigidity optimizes string vibration.
It's subtle, but turning these knobs and pots feels SO much better than the average, run-of-the-mill controls found on so many guitars these days. You'll love them!
