With the latest Star Wars movie releasing soon, Vincent Guitars built two Star Wars inspired guitars: the Rebel Jag and the Imperial Caster. These two exclusive guitars not only have a great sound and an exceptional look and feel, but they are also equipped with two matching pedals whose effects are amazing.
Luthier Vincent Uijtendaal is a real Star Wars fan, so building two Star Wars-theme guitars was a matter of time. The Rebel Jag is recognizable derived from the Rebel spaceships, which will compete against the ‘evil’ Darth Vader and The Death Star space station. The surface of the Death Star you see then reflected in the Imperial Caster.
Especially for ‘all you Rebel scum’ we made the typical Rebel-colored Rebel Jag, which includes a space ship surface. The fantastic sound of the Rebel Jag is partly due to hand wound P90s and the tone can be controlled by a special button in the form of an R2 unit, one of the little Rebel robots. Furthermore, there is a tremolo unit present. The Rebel Jag has a neck of flamed maple with a matte finish and a rosewood fret board with a Rebel logo mother of pearl inlay. “The Force is strong with this one!”
The Imperial Caster is the “dark and evil ‘counterpart of the Rebel Jag. The Death Star surface of this guitar was created by using various technical and miniature kit components, in the same way as most spaceships from Star Wars were made. By making a mold, we made this special surface. The ‘fat’ sound of the Imperial Caster is due to the two humbuckers that can be controlled with mother of pearl inlaid ‘Death Star’ buttons. The dark lacquered maple neck has an ebony fret board where the mother of pearl Imperial logo is showing. “Impressive … Most impressive”.
Ever hear a guitar sound like an R2, the little astromach Star Wars droid? You can with the Rebel effect pedal that comes with the Rebel Jag. If you hit the strings it’s just like R2D2 is sitting next to you. This amazing effect matches exactly with the Rebel Jag.
The Imperial Caster comes with a pedal too. This effect has two different options for destortion to have an optimal experience of the Dark Presence. In terms of look & feel it matches his Imperial space station too.
