Dave Navarro's six-string skills merge heavy metal, psychedelic, and modern rock styles into a new and exciting blend that has helped him became one of alternative rock's first true guitar heroes. From his groundbreaking work with Jane's Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers to his guest appearances on landmark recordings such as Nine Inch Nails' Further Down the Spiral and Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill, Dave Navarro has made his eclectic style a trademark.
Epiphone is famous for making great sounding and affordable solid-wood acoustic guitars and Dave Navarro's new signature model is no exception. It features a solid Sitka Spruce top, hand-scalloped bracing, mahogany kerfing, and a solid mahogany back. The mahogany neck is hand-fitted to the elegant Venetian cut-away body using a traditional dove-tail neck joint and hide glue usually only found in vintage models. The neck features a 25.5 inch scale length and a solid ebony fingerboard. The result is a dreadnought guitar with naturally deep, rich bass, a clear mid-range, and punchy highs capable of cutting through, even unplugged.
But if you're looking for a guitar that comes alive with real acoustic tone when plugged in, the new Dave Navarro is just the one for you. Epiphone's eSonic™ preamp system with the revolutionary NanoFlex™ under-saddle pickup gives you the control and sound quality you need when performing live. Designed in co-operation with Shadow of Germany, the eSonic™ is a small lightweight preamp powered by two long-lasting lithium batteries. It features a fast and extremely accurate built-in chromatic tuner that allows you to 'mute' the output of the guitar while tuning or while 'unplugging' to avoid a loud 'pop'. Other controls include Master Volume, Treble and Bass EQ, a Dynamics slider that acts as an EQ frequency shifter, and a 'phase' switch to help eliminate feedback.
Under the saddle is Shadow's Nanoflex™ pickup. The NanoFlex™ design utilises 7 highly sensitive and ultra-responsive layers of sensor material to not only sense the string vibrations but the vibrations of the guitar body as well. This produces results equivalent to a condenser-microphone mixed with an under-saddle pickup with none of the harshness of a piezo. The Nanoflex™ is the first pickup to incorporate active amplification directly at the pickup. As a result, the signal does not pass through even a single millimetre of the wire and therefore, the signal quality is never compromised. Combined with its 100% shielding, the Nanoflex™ is absolutely and completely noise free.
Classic Sound, Modern Features
The Dave Navarro Signature model is finished in a high-gloss ebony colour. The body is multi-bound on the top and on the back with contrasting white binding as is the fingerboard and headstock. The sound hole features an inlaid rosette combining both binding and Abalone. As a personalised touch, the multi-layer truss rod cover features 'Jane' in white, while the very thin clear pickguard features a haunting line drawing. The artwork is printed on the underside of the pickguard to preserve it for years to come. Other professional features include 16:1 ratio Grover® machine heads for stable and accurate tuning, nickel hardware, a solid rosewood bridge with bone saddle, and a slightly wider nut width of 1.725 inch for easy and precise fingering.
