The basic idea was a better follow up of the Jabocaster. It should be able to produce all the different sounds of the Scorpions, from wallcrashing heavy to ultraclean. All sounds should be available from the guitar controls. Also it should feature 24 frets.

The development took a couple of prototypes, the final model represents the optimum. This varity of sounds is possible by the use of the brandnew Dommenget patented pickups, carefully made to Matthias specifications.

  • Fretboard : rosewood, long scale
  • Inlays : Dot mother of pearl, Sign in fretboard Abalone / mother of pearl
  • frets : jumbo Dunlop 6150 (Gibson)

  • Pickup Bridge :"Masterbucker B"(HBSC combination Humbucker / Single Coil, patented )
  • Pickup middle : Funkstrat, reverse polarity 
  • Pickup Neck : "Masterbucker N" (HBSC combination Humbucker / Single Coil )
  • Colour: Candy Apple Red


For the reasons of sound we use the good old 4-hole steelplate to hold the neck. The connection is "wood-on-wood" non-laquered to enhance the sound even more

( an old Jimi Hendrix trick with remarkable results ).

The original Floyd Rose tremolo is mounted flat to the top (downwards only) for more sustain and stay-in-tune-ability.
