Tregan updates their Syren series with the SyrenXT

Chambersburg, PA (March 17, 2009) --The SyrenXT is the second generation Syren by Tregan Guitars. By combining the best of the signature and standard series Syrens, with suggestions from professional players and customers, the XT is truly an instrument for the player.

The new bold look of the XT features a two tone paint job, Floyd Rose licensed tremolo, Grover tuners, black hardware and a more comfortable tapered back. A Passive/Active switch, along with the built in powered Preamp, offers great flexibility when playing. In passive mode the alnico humbuckers give you smooth tones for strumming to your favorite songs. The active mode adds more bite and enhances tone and harmonics, turning the XT into a shredding machine.

Like the rest of the Syren series, the XT is a guitar to behold, and to be held. It has Tregan’s super fast neck with twenty-four frets, Syren Wing inlays and deep cutouts for easy access to all twenty-four frets. The smaller headstock and the unique body shape were designed to give the guitar a comfortable feel and perfect balance.

Specs:
• Contoured mahogany body & set neck
• New XT contoured back
• Rosewood fret board
• Two tone paint job
• 24 medium/jumbo frets
• 25 inch scale (647.7 mm)
• 12 inch radius
• Alnico V humbuckers
• Preamp with active/passive switch
• Floyd Rose licensed tremolo
• Grover machine heads
• Colors Available: Black w/ Red Accents; Red w/ Black; White w/ Black

The SyrenXT is available now at Tregan Retailers.
