‘In 1970 a certain Wolverhampton guitarist re wrote the book on how to play ‘heavy’ riffs. A few years later a young lad found a copy of an early album by that guitarist’s seminal metal band in a junk shop (ironically a converted church!).

The young lad was me … and that sound changed my life … and the Void P90 is by way of my homage to one of my own rock heroes.’

Weighing in at over 22k DC resistance bridge and 16k neck this is a beast with heavy boots of lead … but still with the bite in the upper ranges that comes with its single coil design … plus with the added sting of twin alnico 8 magnets and high tensile steel poles to keep the clarity and cutting power.
