Ares DC X-line Black Gloss HSS, handmade in Sweden
Ares X-line is a series of handmade guitars from Vallvik in Sweden.
The X-lines are normal sized Strat and Tele clones and the reason we have them in our program is to complete our product line.
The necks are made in our facility in Vallvik. We decided to make our own necks because we couldn't find necks with a quality level we could accept. Our X-Line necks are made in the same way as in our more expensive Classic Series guitars.
The X-Line guitars have a scale length of 25,5"and we chose 22 frets for the fretboards. The radius is 12".
The X-Line bodies are made by a subcontractor, that offers bodies to a very high quality standard.
The Ares X-line instruments are equipped as standard with Lundgren Pickups. The volume pots are fitted with a treble bleed filter. The pickguards are the same as in std type Strats and Teles.
The X-Line guitars are fitted with chrome hardware as standard. At extra costs there are a lot of options such as gold or black hardware and your choice of pickups.
