Designed and Developed from the Ground Up

The Atlantis is a high performance, professional chambered solidbody electric guitar featuring our exclusive, patented LightWave Analog Optical Pickup System. More than a decade of research and testing came together to create the ideal platform for the Optical Pickup. Constructed of premium tonewoods with a chambered body and slash soundhole, the excellent natural acoustic resonance of Atlantis makes it equally ideal for casual playing without an amplifier and everything else in between practice and performance.

Delivering the True Sound of the Strings

The LightWave Optical Pickup’s transparent response ensures harmonically rich, deep, and powerful tone, spanning a wide range from pure, natural string sound for the ultimate in lyrical playing, to super-aggressive for all-out shredding. Extremely low noise characteristics eliminate the annoying background hum and buzz typical of conventional pickups, and with no magnetic field damping the strings, sustain is long and natural.
