DBZ Custom Pickups
DBZ Guitars spent countless hours refining their signature custom pickups. The R15 provides hot output while retaining singing highs, aggressive harmonics, and most importantly, clarity and tone.The N9C provides late-'50s, vintage-correct, humbucker sounds with arm and crystalline clean tones. Full and bright distorted tones. The R15S makes minor modifications to the R15 for a different feel while retaining output and the R11 provides less aggressive, but punchy, more classic gain tones. For earlier models, note that the DBZB / DBZ5 pickups are the same as the R15/N9C.
Often considered the world's finest tuning machines, the Grover tuners are a triumph in engineering and style. The housing provides a maximum bearing for worm gear and string post and designed to eliminate backlash and slippage. Countersunk tension tension screw permits players to regulate turning tension to any degree. Gear box has a special lubricant for lifetime, trouble-free service.
Contoured Bolt Neck
The Bolt Neck design has been around since nearly the origin of electic guitars. The neck is joined to the body with a screwed in or "bolt on" design maximizing strength and making service easy. DBZ's contoured system provides for incredible comfort and fast feel.
