Bob Balch began playing guitar for Fu Manchu, Southern California's most fuzzilicious band, in 1996. Of course, he needed a hot-rodded rock machine for the adventure. The understated elegance of the Bob Balch Signature model is based on our acclaimed Sensei platform. Unique features include beveled body edges, glossy finish, and a strategic chamber under the pickguard for increased resonance. Railhammer Bob Balch Signature pickups complete the package, for a thick tone with enhanced midrange clarity that can handle everything you could throw at it.
