Flame F5

Don’t be deceived by the beauty of this guitar. The F5 is the somewhat brutal cousin of the F1. Fitted with the classic combination of the Seymour Duncan Jazz and JB, high output, pickups this guitar produces lots of power and sustain and has a pronounced mid- range tone. Those pick-ups, combined with a slightly flatter compound radius fretboard and taller fret-wire, means that this guitar will probably appeal more to guitarists who use a lot of distortion and have an aggressive playing style. Parallel wiring is added as standard, adding a voice that has less output and brighter, high end tones. As with all Flame Guitars the specification shown here can be tailored to produce a guitar that is right for you. The F5 pictured here has a walnut top-wood.
