Scala Guitars Underdog Concert in Imperial Blue



The Underdog is a short scale, single cut, set neck construction instrument which has two sides to its story. While normally the Underdog has a carved Flame Maple top paired with a Mahogany back, this one features a relic’d Ash body with a sound vented top. Other features include an premium Indian Rosewood fingerboard and headstock overlay and special Arcane/Scala humbucker set.

Underdog Concert

Named the Underdog “Concert” this instrument has sound properties quite different from your regular Mahogany/Maple LP style guitar. One-piece sound vented Swamp Ash back with a carved 5A Flame Maple top dictates that clear and open bell like sound with pronounced highs, punchy lows and scooped up mids. The Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard kicks in with the mid range and adds the warmth to the overall instrument voice. Special set of Alnico 3 pickups was hand wound by Rob of Arcane pickups. Gold mother of pearl Stinger inlays, Skull engraved pickup covers, hand rubbed and aged finish, are just some of the artistic touches.

This is an instrument with very unique and very personal sound property of its own. Very tight and punchy bottom, never muddy and absolutely amazing with drop tunings. String definition and string attack are simply off the charts. Cleans up nicely and has that crazy twangy bite in its middle position. Not your usual set neck, single cut, short scale guitar…
