The new offering boasts a tight-grained mahogany body with carved top contour, three-piece mahogany set-through-neck with dual-action truss rod and satin finish and a 12-inch radius, 22-fret ebony fingerboard with pearloid Icon inlays.
Other features include a Tune-O-Matic-style bridge and Dean Cadi high-mass hardtail, Grover tuners and five-ply multi-binding on the body, neck and quill headstock.
Pickups are a pair of exclusive Seymour Duncan APH-1 (neck) and SH-5 (bridge) humbuckers in custom zebra parchment finish with sandblasted pole pieces, controlled via single volume and tone knobs and a three-way toggle.
The APH-1 Alnico II Pro promises to handle both classic and modern tones, while the SH-5 is dubbed a “P.A.F. (patent applied for) on steroids”.
The Icon Select is offered with a choice of mahogany top and Classic Black finish for $899 or flame maple top with Ocean Burst finish for $949.
