Novax Guitars proudly presents “ANNIE”, our 25th Anniversary commemorative guitar. This Limited Edition guitar is the embodiment of 40+ years of lutherie experience and 25+ years of multi-scale “Fanned-Fret” design.

TWO ANNIES:
Inspired by iconic designs, both ANNIES are the modern evolution of two popular classics, with enhanced performance features like multi-scale Fanned-Fret tone and individual bridges.

1) “SWEET ANNIE”: mahogany neck/mahogany body/two custom-voiced Bartolini “soapbar” pickups, and a new proprietary 5-way switching circuit for 5 distinct, sparkling clear tones.

2) “SASSY ANNIE”: maple neck/swamp ash body/three single-coil pickups by Lollar or Bartolini.

All ANNIES have the following features:

  • Exciting to play with amazing response to player touch
  • Stunningly accurate tuning
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Made in U.S.A.
  • Solid hardwoods
  • Top quality components
  • Novax proprietary individual bridges
  • GraphTech “StringSaver” saddles
  • Sparkling clear note definition
  • Comfortable, ergonomic playability
  • Custom scale lengths for a wide range of altered tunings
  • Ebony fretboard
  • Pearl dot inlay
  • Jumbo frets
  • Pickups by Lollar or Bartolini
  • Hardshell case included

This is a limited edition of 25 commemorative guitars, each signed by Ralph Novak.

Both models are specially priced at $2,500.00 throughout 2014.

Pickups

SASSY ANNIE can be ordered with:

  • Lollar “Blonde” set
  • Lollar “Blackface” set
  • Bartolini 3XQ set

All sets are true single-coil, with hum-cancelling combinations of neck&middle and bridge&middle.

SWEET ANNIE has two custom-voiced, hum-cancelling Bartolini “soapbar” pickups, with our proprietary circuit designed specially for this model. This unique circuit has 5 distinct tones; it alters the voicing of the pickups to have more “single coil” flavor in position #2, 3 and 4, enhancing sparkle and definition.

This is a highly versatile tone combination, with rich, warm “humbucking” tones and shimmering “single-coil” tones at your fingertips. These unique “open voiced” tones are not available with more common “coil-tapping” circuits and are hum-cancelled in all positions.

A word about our proprietary individual bridges:

  • Individual bridges enhance string definition, isolating each string's vibration. This minimizes the “string-to-string crosstalk” common in single-unit designs. More simply, it cuts “muddy tone”.
  • Light-weight and responsive to the nuances of player “touch”, you hear the wood, not a massive chunk of metal.
  • Additionally, we use GraphTech “StringSaver” saddles for longer string life.

You'll love your Annie!
