Super Wizard HP Neck
Refined super-fast Prestige Wizard neck for ultimate shredders - 17mm width at 1st fret and 19mm at the 12th.

HGD & ST Pickups
The Hot Grinder pickups are specially designed for the S Prestige—gain is optimized yet sharpness is not sacrificed. The Short Tracer single coil pickup matches perfectly with the hot humbuckers making the S guitars among the most versatile.

ZR-2 tremolo w/ZPS3

ZPS3 Zero Point System
The ZPS3 is the next stage of zero point systems. Made of lightweight Duralumin, the addition of two outer springs makes the guitar easier to tune and provides much greater tuning stability. In fact, the other strings will stay in tune even if you break a string. If you prefer a full floating tremolo setup, simply remove the stop bar.

Collet Knob
Designed for great looks and engineered to avoid the risk of coming off while you're playing. The non-slip functionality gives this collet knob accurate axis rotation and control for any player.

Barless Top-Lok
The Barless Top-Lok eliminates the need for a retainer bar to maintain string tension. Through its simple design, it holds the correct angle for the strings without one. The metal-injection molding process means that all the edges remain smooth, so you won't hurt your hands.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
