Moonbeast - Concept
The whole Moonbeast concept is dedicated to our closest celestial neighbor. The whole guitar falls under the sign of the Lord of the Tides, from the crescents in the headstock and at the end of the body, to the moon phase inlay on the fretboard and the guitar's name in Cyrillic script.
The Moonbeast shown here is just an example of what a Beast of the East custom guitar might look like. Of course, we can build your Moonbeast with the woods, hardware and pickups of YOUR choice! All handbuilt instruments are available as left-hand models as well.
The guitar's name in Cyrillic script is the trademark of the Beast of the East Series. The names were inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, according to the specific instrument's concept.

Reversed truss rod, accessible at the 20th fret. You don't need to loosen the strings to access the truss rod - just unscrew the cover plate and that's it!
Radical headstock designs are reinforced from both sides to achieve better stability.
Both PUs are passive and handwound custom creations. In the production of passive PUs, we put great emphasis on highlighting the sound character predefined by the woods used instead of just aiming for high output. Especially in the case of metal pickups, we strive for a good balance between volume and dynamics, so that all pinch harmonics come out as great as they're played.
