Renowned as much for their artistic appointments as for the murderer’s row of artists who play them, Scala’s reimagined Les Pauls and Telecasters command the world’s biggest stages night after night, and their ornate beauty is surpassed only by the quality of their construction and components.
Believing that nitro-finished tops and oiled backs produce a more responsive instrument with unique sound qualities, Scala set about creating the Underdog. But while this Underdog is without question a people's favorite, it's certainly no come-from-behind sleeper. With fine-tuned Arcane USA pickups and unique "Sound Vent" design (see back), this guitar is a front-runner the moment you lay eyes on it, and to play it is the experience of a lifetime.
