Chafin Ember

Here is the first Chafin Ember production model from Ben Chafin’s shop in 2002. The back is mahogany and the top is 5A quilt maple, a proven tonal recipe. The 24.75 inch scale mahogany neck features a 12 inch radius ebony fingerboard with 22 hand crowned jumbo frets. The fingerboard features genuine pearl block inlays. The pickups are by Bartolini, a collaboration between Ben Chafin and Bill Bartolini to build a vintage style pickup specifically for these guitars. The bridge position features a full size humbucker for the sound of a hot PAF while the neck position houses a Firebird mini humbucker for articulate rhythm. The pickups are hooked to push/pull pots for added versatility.
