Rapier 44, Arctic White Overview

Introducing the Rapier™ 44: A Legendary Successor

The Rapier™ 44 is the latest addition to the esteemed series of electric guitars by the legendary UK guitar builder and designer, Alan Entwistle. Drawing inspiration from the original iconic Rapier guitars that made a significant impact in the British guitar industry during the 1960s, the Rapier 44 continues this successful lineage.

Versatility Redefined: Quartet of Entwistle EWR64 Mini-Double Coil Pickups

The Rapier 44 comes equipped with a quartet of Entwistle EWR64 mini-double coil pickups. This powerful setup, combined with Rapier’s famous switching system, offers an impressive 15 sonic permutations. As a result, the Rapier 44 is a versatile and dynamic instrument, providing an incredible range of tonal possibilities to suit various playing styles.

Stunning Finishes: Fiesta Red with White Scratchplate and Arctic White with Black Scratchplate

Available in two eye-catching finishes, Fiesta Red with a white scratchplate and Arctic White with a black scratchplate, the Rapier 44 retains the glorious charms and visual characteristics of the original. With its vintage allure, this guitar exudes a sense of nostalgia while embracing a modern aesthetic.

Honoring Tradition: Glorious Charms of the Original

The Rapier 44 pays homage to its iconic predecessor by preserving its glorious charms and visual appeal. This design approach ensures that the guitar carries forward the spirit and essence of the original Rapier, connecting it to the rich heritage of British guitar craftsmanship.

Enhanced Tonewood and Hardware: African Okoume Body and Canadian Hard Rock Maple Neck

Notable upgrades enhance the Rapier 44’s tonal capabilities and playability. It features an African Okoume body, which provides a balanced and resonant tone. The 4-bolt Canadian hard rock maple neck with a soft ‘C’ profile is equipped with a fully adjustable truss rod, allowing for precise adjustments to suit individual preferences.

Perfect Playability: 23 Fret, 12 Inch Radius Fingerboard

With a 23-fret fingerboard, including a zero fret, and a comfortable 12-inch radius, the Rapier 44 ensures perfect playability and effortless maneuverability across the fretboard. This design caters to both technical playing and expressive bends.

Precision Performance: 43mm GraphTech Nut, Wilkinson WJ55 E-Z Lok Machine Heads, and High-Spec’d Roller Bridge
