X500 is born again with a modern aesthetic and feature upgrades to become the new darker and aggressive X500 Menace, making it highly suitable for metal and extreme music guitarists. While maintaining the neck-thru-body construction for exceptional sustain and high frets access, the X500 Menace now features a more popular maple top on mahogany body combination, reverse headstock, 7-piece Maple / Purple Heart / Panga Panga neck and compound radius fingerboard, FloydRose® 1000 Series tremolo, and Seymour Duncan® Sentient & Nazgul Humbucker set for superb playability, sound quality, and that menacing presence the guitarists for extreme genre seek.

Mahogany Body Wing with Maple Top
 
The Maple top on Mahogany body is a classic wood combination that simply cannot be beat: thick, cutting, warm, rich, full and sweet. Combined with the neck-thru construction, the sustain and tone transfer is limitless.
 
Neck-Thru Body Construction
 
When it comes to sustain and focused midrange punch and cut, no other neck-body joint method beats neck-thru-body construction. Rock-solid stable and super sleek, it is built for speed across the entire range of the fingerboard.
 
Seymour Duncan® Sentient & Nazgûl Humbucker Set
 
Take your guitar to the center of the earth with the Nazgûl and Sentient high output passive humbucker pickups. The Nazgûl combines a large ceramic magnet with custom winding specs resulting in a perfect blend of note articulation, saturation, pick attack, and one of the most brutal “chugs” you’ll ever hear from a humbucker. The Sentient neck delivers a balanced, versatile tone with pristine cleans and fluid leads under high gain.
 
1 Volume & 1 Tone
3 Way Pickup Selector
 
Sometimes simplicity is all that a player needs to get the musical point across. One volume pot and one tone pot with 3-pickup selector keeps it clean and simple and allows the player to focus on the music.
 
FloydRose® 1000 Series Tremolo
 
Nothing stays in tune quite like a FloydRose® tremolo system. Whether you are dive-bombing, doing extreme harmonic squeal pullups or subtle chordal coloration, the Floyd will give you the confidence to express your musical ideas without any tuning worries.
 
Ebony Fingerboard
 
There are many types of woods that are used for fingerboard but no other compares to the jet-black beauty and slick smoothness of Ebony.
 
7pcs Maple / Purple Heart / Panga Panga Neck
 
The 7-piece Maple, Purple Heart and Panga Panga neck provides rock-solid stability and smooth surface for high-speed riffing and soloing with unfettered access to the highest frets for superb playability.
 
Compound Radius Fingerboard (12-15.75”)
 
A deluxe feature for players who like to transition from easy chording on the low register to high-speed soloing and enhanced string-bending on the upper register, the compound radius facilitates easier playability so you can focus on your playing.
 
Reverse Headstock
 
Exclusive for the X500 Menace, the reverse headstock presents an unconventional and meaner look over the original design.

CITES

CITES regulations concerning the export of items containing certain woods affect any guitar sold ouside of the European Union and which contains any quantity of either Rosewood or Bubinga.  In these cases, an additional charge of £80.00 will be levied per species after the sale to pay for the required re-export certificate.  There will be a delay in dispatching any guitar containing either Bubinga or Rosewood of up to 4 weeks while we obtain the necessary certification for export. As the charge is per species, where a guitar contains both Bubinga AND Rosewood, the charge is doubled to £160.00.  We will contact you following your purchase of any guitar containing a controlled wood and advise of the charge once you have placed the order.  You can make payment for the charge by sending a Paypal payment to us at: sales@fxpedal.co.uk. 

Note that CITES only applies to guitars containing Rosewood or Bubinga that are being exported outside the European Union.  Guitars being delivered with the United Kingdom or in the European Union will be dispatched as normal.
