I’m unfamiliar with these guys, but this looks like a seriously tasty bit of kit – I’ve emailed them to find out if they have any plans to release it in the UK. IF they could sell it for under £700, then it could do very well.
The Esoterik DR1 delivers excellent tone, comfort, performance and sustain by means of its neck-through and string-through design.
The DR1 features a spoke nut truss rod (with easy access), a carved body top and concave back. It comes with a mahogany body and a five-piece walnut/figured maple neck. A 25.5” scale length. 24 jumbo stainless steel frets on an ebony fretboard. The fretboard has a 16” radius, cantered pearl dots and glow in the dark side dots. It’s topped with a natural satin finish and the very best in hardware. The DR1 features a TonePros tune-o-matic bridge with graphite saddles and a GraphTech nut, Gotoh 510 mini tuners and Seymour Duncan Distortion/Jazz pickups. The headstock is topped with an ebony overlay with a mother-of-pearl inlaid logo. It comes with a separate bridge volume and neck volume knob, one master tone knob and a three way toggle. The wood matched electronics cavity cover plate also features our laser engraved Phoenix logo.
All new Esoterik Guitars include a hard-shell case.
