The customer that comissioned Midas simply gave us his preferences and his budget. He then gave us full creative freedom to build the guitar how we thought he would want it. Rarely do guitar-makers get that level of artistic control over a customer's instrument, so we used the opportunity to showcase the more "boutique" side of the EQS. From the swirling grain of the Walnut body, to the Flamed Maple neck, to the smaller details such as the offset abalone dots, Jescar Evo Gold fretwire to match the hardware and laser-etched EQ logo, everything was selected to emphasize a luxurious, warm aesthetic.
Midas is far from just a pretty face, however, as the Walnut and and Maple combination paired with a set of DiMarzio Pickups reveals a rich, 3-dimensional palette of tones that are as complex as they are beautiful.
