Found in the already popular performance series, these guitars offer full out, blistering tone. The darkly alluring new black graphite semi gloss finish is a common bond between both guitars. However, both have different explosive personalities.

The Freeway EMG possesses a sleek and aggressive double cutaway body style, made from a center block of Silver leaf maple with poplar wings to house a fixed bridge, volume and tone controls and a 3 way switch to select between 2 active EMG-81 humbuckers. These pickups combined with the guitar's 25" scale and Silver leaf maple center, will provide a lethal level of attack and screaming sustain.

The LG EMG features a single cutaway, string through body design and the same controls as the Freeway EMG but combines a 24" scale, an all mahogany body and neck with an active EMG-85 humbucker in the neck and an EMG-81 humbucker in the bridge to offer up a warm and thick crushing wall of sound when needed.

Assembled in Berlin, New Hampshire from finely crafted parts made in LaPatrie Quebec.
