This unusually named signature model is made by Zemaitis for the Band-Maid guitarist, Miku Kobato. The Flappy Pigeon features intricate work all over its Duralumin metal fascia. And, as expected from Zemaitis, this bird is quite the stunner.
Zemaitis Guitars Flappy Pigeon
Japanese metal guitarist Miku Kobato’s new single-cut Zemaitis is a beautiful looking guitar, covered in an ornately engraved pattern over its Duralumin top. The A24MF-FP model, or Flappy Pigeon, is quite the looker, even if the name is slightly comical. The guitar’s Matte Black finish design also includes a rose inlaid on the left-hand side, as well as a Flappy Pigeon logo engraving on the truss rod cover.
It has an African mahogany body and neck with a 25″ scale length and a set-neck design. The neck comes with a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard, replete with custom inlays. I’d hazard a guess that the sustain on this guitar should be pretty decent with this set neck and hard tail design, so I bet it sounds great when cranked up. You get a pair of Zemaitis-designed Dragon Classic humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, and a three-way selector switch. This guitar certainly has some lovely specifications.
Hardware includes a set of Gotoh SG381-01 tuners and a bone nut, so tuning should be rock solid. I think the guitar looks stunning and it is really nice to see Zemaitis making these models, as the brand’s long history has many examples of beautifully engraved designs. I’m pleased to see that tradition being carried on.
The guitar ships in a really attractive baby-blue hard case. The whole package just oozes class all round. I think the Band-Maid guitarist has chosen well with this signature model and I’m looking forward to what the as-yet unannounced price of this guitar will be.
