The scalloped fingerboard on the 19th-24th frets is KIKO's own touch, for easier high note bending and tapping.
KIKO's unique scoop cutaway at the back of the body allows even easier access to high frets from any angles.
Kiko plays a wide range of music, from metal to jazz fusion, and the pickups were designed to reflect this range of sound. The neck and bridge pickups both humbuckers have medium output and a balanced sound in terms of frequency response. The single-coil middle pickup is more powerful and warmer-sounding than a typical vintage single-coil, in order to balance well with the neck and bridge pickups.
Gotoh machineheads provide super precision, an ultra smooth feel, and minimal back lush.
