Flaxwood is combining their patented composite material with solid wood in their latest solidbody guitars

Heinävaara, Finland (December 21, 2010) -- Flaxwood is proud to introduce an exciting new series of instruments to their growing line of fine electric guitars. Crafted in Finland, the new affordably priced hybrid series introduces a patented NFC (Natural Fiber Composite) bolt-on neck combined with a European Alder body - a combination which offers players the same sustain, responsiveness and stability that are the trademarks all Flaxwood guitars have become known for and appreciated by discriminating players around the world.

Flaxwood is proud to be the first production guitar company to employ NFC injection molding technology in their manufacturing process. Using recycled Northern Spruce fiber as the primary ingredient, the NFC composite is truly “green” in that no trees were cut down in order to manufacture the material, and it is also completely recyclable. Available initially in two versions: featuring either three single-coil or two humbucker Seymour Duncan pickups, both Hybrid models will ship with stainless steel tremolo bridges. Street price is expected to be $999.
