The Wild-IV Signature Electric Guitar brings the player an entirely new level of pickup and tone control. A Cool Blue (Alnico 2) humbucking pickup in the neck position and a Stinger (Alnico 5) humbucking in the bridge position are totally selectable. Upper position of the three-way toggle selects the bridge position only. Center selects both neck and bridge and down position selects bridge only. Dual Coil Taps provide the ultimate in transforming both the bridge and neck pickups into single coils and the three-way toggle remains active. Signature Series Ebonite fingerboard, black hardware, Grover tuning machines (Three on a Side) faux pearl and abalone block inlays are standard features. 3D Vibracell body in Teardrop colors.
Vibracell is a patented process of completely molding both electric and bass guitars including the neck and headstock, from the patented Switch Vibracell material creating an instrument with precise harmonic resonance and sound frequency. Vibracell allows the entire instrument to be created as a whole with complete control of neck, body weight and density by controlling the internal cells. With the ability to control the cells we can effectively tune the body and neck to exceed the characteristics and response of those instruments made from the best available woods in the world. Additionally, Vibracell has the pure strength to withstand extreme temperature changes that affect traditional wooden bodies and necks.
The ability to control the cells density allows the neck to be formed with the body as one piece. Vibracell allows a true one piece neck-through design that eliminates the gluing of two half bodies to the neck. The one piece neck-thru body approach allows for energy to be transmitted through the entire body not only with extreme efficiency, but at a higher rate of speed ultimately delivering pure sustain and clarity.
Vibracell technology allows the instrument to be created equally, time and time again without variances in sound due to the variances in wood.
Vibracell models are offered with traditional Rosewood fingerboard and our proprietary Ebonite fingerboard. Ebonite provides the bold rich smooth warm sound of ebony along with the punch of hard rock maple. Ebonite transfers the energy from the neck to the body at an extreme high rate of speed and intensity resulting in superior crystal clear harmonics and extraordinary sustain.

I just recently got this guitar after about a year looking for one. This is a pretty sweet guitar because of the cheap price, ebony fingerboard, and overall quality for the price. The Stinger pickup in the bridge has a sting to it (go figure) and is not to bad, the Cool Blue muddies it up a bit, not as good as the Stinger in My opinion. Neck construction is fairly good,Not the best however due to the fact that you can't get all the way to the 22nd fret to easily.The ebonite fingerboard is like grease under my fingertips, I definately am going to get ebony on the next guitar I get. The overall sound is o.k.Feel, o.k. as well. Of course not as good as a more expensive guitar, say $500- on up, But pretty good for a dude on a budget, or a dude whos gonnaget a floor processor as well.
I'm only writing this cause I just ordered it. I have the Switch Wild I that is the single pickup no frills version and let me tell you these things are the best kept secret out there! The neck is perfect, the sound is that of basswood or mahogony. The tuners and pots are high quality and smooth. QC? They come out of a mold. These things play like a $500 guitar.
When I first received this guitar I was very disappointed. It was completely unplayable due to the fact that the action was extremely high: you could fit your index finger in-between the fret board and the strings without touching both. Also, the intonation was way out of whack. After spending about an hour lowering the saddles, tweaking the neck and intonating, it turned out to be a pretty good guitar. It?s also a VERY small bodied guitar? just like a Parker Fly which I assume it?s modeled after. The neck is somewhere along the lines of the 60?s slim taper that Gibson offers. No sharp frets either. All in all, it?s a very inexpensive guitar that should be adequate for any beginner or anyone who?s just looking for something a bit different to mess around with. Just be aware that you will most likely have to have this guitar set up straight out of the box.
