The Panthera Classic has a Mahogany body with an arched Flamed Maple top — and is light-weight. The principle of its construction is based on a hollow-milled body, on which a two-piece arched top with F-hole has been glued-on. To mount the bridge and the pickups, two Mahogany sockets were left for each: although it is not a real end-to-end sustain-block, feedback problems are not a topic. The Panthera Classic shows the sound-behaviour of a common E-guitar — only with the difference to be extremely light-weighted. The single-part bolt-in neck of Maple carries a Rosewood (Pro) / Tigerstripe Ebony (Custom), fingerboard with dots (Pro) / traditional custom inlays of pure nacre (Custom).
The electronics of the Classic consists of two Seymour Duncan SH-1 humbuckers (’59 Model™) with chrome covers. They are connected to a 3-way toggle switch, volume and a tone control are available for sound manipulation.
Available in a Natural or Coloured Oil Finish (Pro) resp. in a High Polish Finish (custom), and with chrome hardware. The Panthera Classic models will be shipped including Warwick “User Kit” and a RockBag® “Premium Line Plus” gig bag, pick guard is enclosed
