From Nolly himself: "From the first time I picked up my Duality, I knew Vik had created something incredibly special. It has an amazingly addictive combination of beauty and ergonomics, but the true art lies in its sound - never have I heard such an expressive and balanced 7-string guitar. Both clean and under gain the notes jump out with perfect consistency from any string anywhere on the fretboard; it captures and reproduces even the most subtle nuances in your playing. Finally, with ViK's versatile and rich sounding pickups and the unspeakably fast playability, it all adds up to a truly exemplary instrument."
This stunning guitar can be ordered in these exact specs from Vik's website. You may not have Nolly's chops, or his fantastic accent, but you can at least have his guitar!
