Electra Guitars is celebrating our eagerly anticipated come back with the announcement of the new Electra Omega.

Tampa, FL (April 19, 2013) -- Electra Guitars is celebrating our eagerly anticipated come back with the announcement of the new Electra Omega. This Electra Guitar embodies the single-cutaway, solid body design, geared for the modern player.

While the Electra Omega was designed to be aesthetically attractive, including the iconic Electra Guitar "Wave" headstock, its all mahogany body features player-friendly ergonomics such as a sculpted heel, for easier fretboard access and a belly cut for additional comfort.

The vintage C-shaped neck sports an all ebony fret board with Jumbo nickel/silver frets, genuine Mother of Pearl Block inlays, and a GraphTech Tusq nut.

We've partnered with an industry leader for the hardware including Tonepros/Kluson Deluxe Tuning Machines, TonePros locking Tune-o-matic Bridges and also their locking Stop Tailpiece.

For the ultimate in tonal selection, the Electra Omega will include our new Electra Magnaflux Humbucker Pickups (custom wound Alnico V's with coil tap!).

Initial models will ship in Gloss Black, Gloss White and left-handed models are also available.

Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
