Katana is the Japanese name for the Samurai sword - a weapon that is simple, precise and dangerous. This sums up our Katana FX7 guitar!

The Katana FX7 is a 7 string baritone 27" scale guitar, ideally suited to down-tuned players, wanting to achieve dropped G tuning while keeping reasonable string tension and good percussive playing performance.

Design was intended to deliver a classy look, but focussed and aggressive in sound and playability. The body is thinner than most Super-Strat style guitars, and with the semi-carved top, makes for an extremely comfortable and medium weight, well balanced guitar. The dense Wenge body top is full in tone, and balanced with the American Swamp Ash back, giving it some mid-scooped depth and high end sparkle. The Ebony fretboard is snappy and can handle full range of dynamics and picking nuances.

Proudly built in our Custom shop in Australia, with highest levels of quality and craftsmanship.
