Vintage re-issue Mad Cat

Coming 2012, for the first time in over 30 years, the original Mad Cat returns.
We tried our best to stay as close as possible to the original specifications. An original ‘70s
Mad Cat was used as a reference model, and after extensive testing we finally settled to what we believe is a worthy successor, which even surpasses the original in some regards.
Subtle upgrades were performed:
Tuners were upgraded to Gotoh SG360 with a higher gear ratio
The original Keiyo pickups were upgraded to Bill Lawrence USA vintage
The output jack is more sturdy, so no more signal drop-outs
Headstock shape
All other specifications are equal to the ‘70s Mad Cats, we designed these guitars with the highest respect to the sound and feel of this legendary guitar.
Each one is handbuilt in the original Moridaira factory by Japanese craftsmen, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
