Artist Signature Series
Sheffield metalcore act While She Sleeps has been tearing it up for over 15 years now on the metal scene with a DIY approach, amassing a hardcore audience across the UK with an intense and highly-acclaimed energetic live show.
Founding member, guitarist and primary songwriter Sean Long is a perfectionist with an artistic spirit, and his intense riffs, searing tone, and no-holds-barred approach to the instrument is highly admired within the guitar community.
The all-new Sean Long Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 1 HH HT M is a formidable model designed to keep up with his high-speed playing, scorching sound and sinister, yet eccentric style.
Its San Dimas alder body is coupled with a bolt-on maple neck with a pair of graphite-reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses. The speed neck profile is designed for blazing-fast playing and completely unhindered position shifts, while the rolled fingerboard edges and hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish provide a comfortable, broken-in feel. The neck also hosts a slick 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, durable Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut, Luminlay® side dots for fretboard guidance in the dark, and a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel for quick and convenient neck relief tweaks.
This axe features an HH pickup configuration loaded with active and innovative EMG® pickups geared towards modern players. The EMG® 57 bridge pickup evokes an unmistakably PAF quality with plenty of headroom and punch for unparalleled definition and presence, while an EMG 66 neck pickup provides the warm, smooth mid-range and expansive lows along with clarity in the upper register.
Keeping things simple control-wise, Long went with a three-way pickup blade switch and a single dome-style volume knob. The instrument is also equipped with a Charvel HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge, designed for improved intonation and enhanced sustain and resonance.
Sure to be noticed on metal stages across the globe, Long's Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 1 HH HT M is cloaked in a durable Gloss Black finish, complete with neon yellow and black pickup covers, black hardware and Fender® Strat® headstock.
