Agufish is a popular YouTube channel run by guitarist Hunter Engel, where he reviews guitars and generally talks six-strings all day long. Now he has teamed up with Harley Benton to create his very own signature model guitar, the new Agufish LTD Signature model.
This new signature single-cut guitar features a AAA ash top on a mahogany body, with dual humbuckers and a 25″ scale length roasted Canadian AAA flamed maple neck loaded with stainless steel frets on a Macassar ebony fretboard.
It comes with some nice features including a Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut and glow in the dark side dot markers. It’s those little touches that make it stand out from, say, an Epiphone or ESP LTD model. They come shipped from the factory set up with a set of Daddario EXL 09-042 strings.
The dual custom-wound Roswell humbuckers are a Seraphim Alnico V at the bridge and a Flanker Alnico V/ceramic in the neck position. It has a traditional twin volume and one control setup wired via a three-way switch. You also get a set of Grover locking tuners and a stop tail with a Tune-o-matic style bridge.
This is a limited edition run of the guitar and each one with comes with a certificate of authenticity. Numbers are limited, though so if you want one you will have to get in pretty quickly. The run is pretty small from what we gather, and the teasers on the Harley Benton Instagram and Facebook channels have been getting a lot of positive responses from the Agufish fans. [Update: people in the know at Harley Benton tell us the production run is 350.]
The specifications for this guitar are pretty decent and if you want a single-cut style instrument then this could be perfect for anyone looking for something a bit different from the norm. The violet finish on the ash top and brushed chrome hardware combined with the roasted maple neck make this model stand out from the crowd.
