Music Store Live is proud to offer up this awesomely unique Zemaitis A24 Metal Front guitar. The laser-etched metal top helps give this axe some aesthetics you won't regularly find on a stage. All this without compromising weight, sustain or resonance, and simply adding a cool look to an awesome sounding and playing guitar.
After a bit of time out of the limelight, Zemaitis Guitars are back and with a vengeance. In 2017 Music Store Live became an official Zemaitis dealer and we've watched as the Casimere and Antanus series have just absolutely taken off. Our techs rarely have to do much to get these guitars dialed in and ready to rock and the response has been overwhelmingly positive by those who have received them.
Short of going through Zemaitis' custom shop, the Antanus line is as good as it gets. Built in Japan by the best luthiers they've got, the refinement of this guitar is instantly noticeable as soon as you get it in your hands. For starters - for a guitar that has so much metal on it, it's really not very heavy and it balances extremely well. At under 8.5 lbs, this is going to be comfortable to play for hours and hours on end and look like you mean business while doing it. The satin neck is super comfortable and it gives you a nice hunk of lumber to hold onto without being so chunky that it gets in the way. Not having a paper-thin neck on this helps contribute to the powerful resonance and sustain that is felt all the way up and down the guitar.
Along with the meticulous craftsmanship and fretwork of this guitar is an electronics package that perfectly compliments the tonewoods. The Zemaitis pickups are definitely designed with the classic Gibson PAF pickups in mind and it's going to sound familiar to Les Paul enthusiasts. They are born out of that vintage sound but they have a little bit more punch and bit more edginess to them. They aren't heavily overwound like metal pickups but they do have a touch more oomph to them than PAF's. It's great for driving your pedals or your amp just a little bit more.
This easily hangs in there with high-end, boutique guitars that retail at a much higher price point.
This is the one! The Antanus line is our premier line of guitars. It gets no finer than this without our Custom shop making one for you by hand. Zemaitis aesthetics in full glory and a comfortable thin profile 24 fret neck the A24mf easily feels at home in any musical situation. Whether you’re keen to be ripping classic rock tunes, slinging some country or melting the house with searing metal licks the Dragon Classic pickups will astound your audiences and will back you all the way! The A24 Metal Front is a classic collector piece right out of the box! You can be sure you’ll always stand out in a crowd with an A24 slung around your neck and of course when it’s hanging on your wall people will admire it for the classic work of art it is.
