The Cosmonaut is the epitome of style and comfort! The sleek cutaways provide immediate access to the highest frets. The Neck, which is bolted to the body, is constructed of several pieces of quarter-sawn maple. This method of construction provides for superior sustain, rigidity, and projection. The body is contoured for maximum comfort whether standing or sitting.
The fingerboard is radiused to a comfortable 9.5″ and is carefully fitted with medium-jumbo frets, highly polished to provide a fast playing response. Padauk or Osage Orange are standard finger board woods. Other woods are available at additional cost. (Cost varies by species; please inquire with your request)
The Cosmonaut is fitted with a pair of the new Nelson “Multiplex” pickups. These pickups have been carefully created using a nearly forgotten vintage pickup design that hasn’t been available since the mid 1950s creating a sound that will surely stand out from the rest!
To round out the beautiful package, the Cosmonaut is finished in genuine satin lacquer. Almost any color is possible; please inquire with your color request.
