OFFSET MODELS

  • Raptor
  • Raptor Semi-Hollow

The Raptor is an offset guitar available in both solid body and semi-hollow body construction, and was designed with a vintage flare to be light, comfortable and resonant. It has a familiar 25.5” scale and vintage PAF Humbuckers for a warm but chimey tone, suitable for wonderful clean or overdriven tones. The standard model has a set of Gotoh 6 in-line tuners and a Gotoh Tune-O-Matic Bridge, complimented by a Tusq “Nubone” nut ensure maximum sustain and tuning stability. It has a rock-solid 3-piece laminate Maple neck that is glued into the body for maximum resonance and sustain, as well as an angled headstock for the perfect string break-over angle, eliminating the need for string-trees.

Tonewoods used in this instrument include an African Mahogany body, Maple (or selected wood) top on semi-hollow models and a choice of hardwoods for the scratch plate and headstock veneer to suit your unique style. The instrument has a hand-applied satin Danish oil finish to showcase the natural beauty of the variety of wood species used.

Standard models are fitted with ToneRider Alinco 4 Vintage PAF Humbucker pickups, controlled by a 3-way selector as well as coil split functionality for both single-coil and humbucking tones. ToneRider Rebel 90 (humbucker sized P90’s) are also available as an option for something a little different.The industry-leading Duesenberg Short Diamond Deluxe Tremola is available as an option for this model with the matching Duesenburg 3-point radius bridge.

The Raptor model is both the most ergonomic and versatile model in the TJS range!
