MKI

Starting at

$ 1,500.00 CAD

The MKI body allows for easy access to the higher frets, a comfortable arm bevel to alleviate shoulder tension and two large cutaways for traditional or modern playing when seated. The small headstock reduces neck dive and puts the strings straight through the nut retainer for the best tuning stability over the zero fret nut. Made with quality exotic hardwoods and premium hardware from Fishman, Hipshot and Graphtech, the MK1 is a uniquely Vigilant design that promises to exceed expectations.

The neck profile of the MKI has a C profile with 19mm @1st fret tapering to 21mm@ 12th making for a very fast but comfortable neck.

Due to the nature of guitar building I may have my hands covered in glue or a few inches from a bandsaw blade.

It is best to email me with any questions and I will get back to you within 2 business days at the latest.
