Well back into the 1990s and right up to this day, Troy Van Leeuwen has contributed deftly textural guitar work and atmospherics to some of alt-heavy rock”s most acclaimed and forward-thinking bands. From the influential “90s alternative of Failure to A Perfect Circle, Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Puscifer and others, Van Leeuwen”s multi-instrumental expertise has given great color and power to a great deal of very creative rock music. The Troy Van Leeuwen Jazz master guitar is as distinctive as the sounds he wrings from it. Its gloss Oxblood finish with a four-ply red tortoiseshell pick guard is darkly alluring, with the interestingly contrasting touch of two white witch hat” control knobs. The dual tone circuits (lead, rhythm) use a two-way toggle switch on the upper horn rather than the customary slider switch, and the brass-saddle Mustang bridge is combined with a Jazz master tailpiece. Other features include a maple neck with C”-shaped profile and heel-end truss rod adjustment, 7.25″-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets and pearloid block inlays, two American Vintage “65 Jazz master single-coil pickups with three-way toggle switching, and vintage-style tuners. Hard-shell case included.
