Jericho Edge Series Electric Guitars

Texas based manufacturer Jericho Guitars introduce the Edge Series, double cutaway guitars with distinctly carved edges.

Jericho Edge Series

Not to be confused as a signature guitar of U2's guitarist, the Edge Series got its name from the elegantly carved edges that give the instrument a unique appearance despite following the tried and tested "superstrat" formula.

The most noteworthy feature of this guitar is its distinctly shaped body, crafted from hand-selected walnut. It would've been just another double cutaway superstrat variation, had it not been for the addition of the carved edges. And it's not just about aesthetics because these arched edges are implemented specifically on where the guitar's body meets the player's, making the guitar more comfortable to play for longer periods of time.

Tone wise, the company describes this walnut body as adding a tangibly sharper attack to the resulting guitar sound, along with sweetened midrange, firm/quick low-end and resonation from top to bottom. They added that all the wood components of each instrument are meant to complement the mentioned sonic properties, including the maple necks which according to them "help define the highs, leaving you with an insanely resonant/strongly defined tone that is unmistakably tight and fully focused."

The company makes the Jericho Edge Series in both 6 and 7 string models, available in standard with 25.75" scale length, and baritone which has a longer scale length of 27". You can also avail of the 8-string version which has a scale length of 27", and a stronger 5-ply (Maple/Walnut/Maple/Walnut/Maple) neck-through construction for handling the added tension of the extra strings.

The Jericho Edge Series is available in three tiers, the most affordable of which have bolt-on necks, the next tier model feature neck-through, and finally there's the Premium Edition which feature extra aesthetics and tonewoods. The Premium Edition is decked out with a 1/4" Wenge top, paired with a Wenge fingerboard that sits on top a 5-ply (Wenge/Walnut/Wenge/Walnut/Wenge) neck that joins the body via neck-through design. It also comes with upgraded hardware that include custom made Black Hipshot bridge and locking tuners with Gold fitted thumbscrews.

Giving these guitars their voices are Alnico V pickups that are hand wound by Jericho themselves. The premium model features Seymour Duncan Nazul and Sentient pickups. The pickups are wired to a 3-way pickup selector with basic master volume and master tone knobs. The tone knob can be pushed and pulled for coil-split functionality, which provide more tone options.

Finally, the new Jericho Edge Series is available in either Transparent Black or Natural stain, with an open-pore finish. For more information on these guitars, you can head over to Jericho Guitars.
