The new models will be available in 6-, 7-, and 8-string versions.

Oakland, ME (March 27, 2015) -- Following the Oakland Axe Factory SS8 and SS7 models, the new headless guitar model, Falcon, is available with the same open selection as aforementioned models, which lets players put together their own ideal version of the instrument.

The goal behind the Falcon was to make a guitar that pushes the boundaries, yet feels familiar and comfortable, with a sleek shallow C-profile neck. With deep contours and rounded edges on the back, and a radiused top on the front, you won't feel any hard edges where the guitar meets your body or your forearm. With a belly cut that hugs your chest, unprecedented upper fret access, and perfect balance both when sitting and standing up, the compact and practically sized Falcon will be an excellent instrument for recording artists and touring musicians alike!

7-String Features:

  • 26.5" scale, 20" fretboard radius. Dual acting truss rod.
  • Your choice between several body, neck, and fretboard woods.
  • Your choice between flamed or quilted maple radiused tops.
  • Pickups from DiMarzio, Bare Knuckle Pickups, Fishman Fluence series, Instrumental Pickups, and Elysian-tuned Aperture pickups.
  • Simple and clean choice of electronics with optional kill-switch!
  • Optional Carbon Fibre reinforcement rods in the neck.
  • Misc. Options like hardware and pickup colours, gig bag, straplocks, etc!

To launch of the Falcon, we are offering a limited discounted run of 21 guitars, starting off with the 7-string model with a discounted base price of $1799.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
