The inspiration behind the “Pixel Hearts” design

The “Pixel Hearts” graphic finish pays homage to the classic video games many players grew up with. This unique design captures the era’s nostalgia and makes the NightSwan a standout piece in any collection and a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for that special guitarist in your life.

Key features of the NightSwan

The mahogany body provides a rich, warm tone that complements the sharp attack of the ebony fingerboard. The fingerboard, adorned with “ping pong” pearloid dot inlays, offers a smooth feel, ideal for technical playing styles.

The satin-finished, slim C-shaped hard maple neck is designed for comfort and speed, making it perfect for lightning-fast licks. You will enjoy a shreddable 16-inch radius and 24 jumbo frets for smooth bending and terrific control over your vibrato.

The model features a reverse headstock

This sleek axe also sports Kramer 85-T Humbucker™ with white bobbins and a Floyd Rose® 1000 Series Tremolo. It’s ready for anything from dive bombing to subtle, shimmery vibrato on chords or single-note lines. The Nightswan will light up your amp in new ways.

With its “Pixel Hearts” graphic finish, this collectible axe bridges the past and present, offering a unique blend of visual appeal, playability, and historical significance. Whether you’re a collector, a professional musician, or someone who appreciates the finer things in music and culture, the NightSwan is a testament to the enduring legacy of the shred sleds of the 80s, reborn for today’s generation.
