Stone Wolf Guitars UK release their latest creation – the Nova Claro Walnut custom. The Nova sports classic lines, but with some fresh, modern touches. The Stone Wolf Nova has proven popular with players of any genre, and can be customised with many possible configurations…

The Stone Wolf Nova features a body with a Wenge, Purpleheart & Bubinga laminate with a stunningly figured Claro Walnut top. The neck is a laminate of Bird’s Eye Maple, Amazaque & Purpleheart with a fretboard made from Yew, Ebony and turqoise resin. The wood has a natural Tung Oil finish. The pickups are a pair of Bare Knuckle Black Hawks (calibrated set). Hardware includes Schaller Black M6 Locking Tuners,
Schaller Ruthenium Hannes 6 Bridge, Yew & Luminlay Knobs,
Graphtech Black TUSQ Nut and Switchcraft 3-way toggle.

“We made another Nova model recently. This one has a thinner body with some subtle carving around the edges. We also changed the scale length to 25.5″ and made it a 24 fret neck. This makes this Nova not only a great guitar for smashing out rhythmic chords but also more than capable of lead playing”Mike Payne, Stone Wolf Guitars
