Alluring curves and a wasp waist—The Haze Burlesque cuts a gorgeous profile. Stunning, figured lacewood skirts pale maple on the three-piece top and makes for a seductive beauty of a guitar.
A mahogany body clings to the figured top, while a laminate of mahogony, maple and ebony forms the neck—carved as standard to the Haze Chunky Asym profile. Fretboard and headstock add more dark ebony.
Dressing things up with just a little bling, the hardware is gold; even the frets are gold.
Vintage-voiced PAF pickups let the Burlesque sound as good as it looks—plenty of power to rock without losing its sweetness. Honeyed tones or raucous growls, it’s got you covered, and the sustain is astonishing—the Burlesque will sing all night.
Great looks and rich sound make the Haze Burlesque a seriously tempting guitar.

The Burlesque's 630mm scale-length allows an easy playability while a bone nut at the angled headstock helps keep things focussed.
A pair of humbuckers, wound to vintage specs, powers things up for jazz, blues and—of course—rock. The pickups are controlled by individual volumes and a master tone and are selected by a three-way toggle switch.
Twenty-two, gold, EVO frets are hard-wearing and the Burlesque is set-up to play like butter. Gotoh 510 tuners and a straight string-pull through the nut keep things solid through the heaviest of playing.
The beauty of the Burlesque is far more than skin-deep.
Go on. Be seduced.
