Introducing the Zerberus Chimaira. Features include a body made of solid Korina wood with an 18 mm thick Maple top and selected flamed maple veneer. The neck is made of hard Maple and is glued deep into the body of the Chimaira. The neck-joint was designed to create a very stable and secure compound. Therefore the neck-heel reaches underneath the neck humbucker. Zerberus tackled the problem of accessing the highest frets in most guitars by developing an elegant and ergonomic neck-body-transition that allows soloing in the highest frets without breaking your fingers.
