Canadian manufacturer Fury has the Fury® BBM Vibrato electric guitar that is made entirely in Saskatchewan. The Eastern soft maple body is mated with your choice of a pau ferro or maple neck that is outfitted with jumbo frets and Schaller tuners. The body features a relieved cutaway body for better access to the higher registers and a ledge on the neck overhangs to serve as a resting place for the thumb when making big string bends. The high mass vibrato drops pitch without sacrificing sustain or tone.
All parts are machined from mill rolled brass with intonation and height adjustments simple and easy to do. Fury uses their own Uninut head nut made from hard acrylic for balanced string sustain and precise string clearance by way of tighter mechanical coupling than conventional string nuts.
The BBM comes with three Fury ZP or Zero Pole pickups that are said to allow the string to vibrate longer by virtue of the pickup's tubular pole piece magnets not exerting undue restrictive force. Special materials and manufacturing techniques ensure higher outputs with little feedback, microphonics or unwanted resonance even at high playing volumes.
The BBM comes with a ZP-20 humbucker at the bridge and two ZP-5S single coils at middle and neck positions. With separate volume and tone controls, the pickups are mixed and selected with a five-position lever switch and a coil switch enabling the bridge pickup to function as a full humbucker or single coil.
Other options include: a two humbucker BBM model; left-handed models; and gold-plated hardware. Fury guitars come in 18 different nitrocellulose acrylic lacquers including: tobacco sunburst, candy red, midnight blue, emerald green, cherry sunburst and whiskey amber transparent. The BBM with vibrato and carrying case sells for $1,599 retail. In the business of making the entire guitar from start to end since 1962, Fury Manufacturing Ltd., is located at 902 Avenue J North Saskatoon. Saskatchewan, Canada S7L2L2.
