Improved upper fret access. Specially design and calibrated SC series Alnico pickups voiced for each position. Sleek, comfortable body design with rear waist cutaway. “Extended Tail Construction” refers to the way the neck is attached to the body. On the SC™-2, the neck pocket is extended all the way to the pickup cavity, vastly increasing the amount of contact area of the neck to the integral center body section of the body. This has the effect of increasing the sustain of the guitar and is a feature not seen on guitars costing many times as much as the SC-2.
