The frame also acts has a stable housing for the components, which allows easy access to the guitars inner-workings including swapping out the pickups and changing the battery.
gold plated connectors that simply unscrew in the event you want to change pickups. Relish Guitars will add the connectors and cables to any aftermarket pickup you send to them.

The guitars interior work is pristine.
The Jane guitar comes with standard and passive volume and tone potentiometers and twin passive Relish Bucker XV pickups, which are designed and made in-house.

The veneer cover on the back is routed out and has a second “door” that has a parallel shape to the body.
This door is held in place by magnets and is easily removed with a guitar pick.
The neck is made of solid maple and the headstock comes with Schaller machine heads.

This guitar is slightly over the 25 1/2” for its scale (650mm) and has a 10” radius. The nut is made of resin. The neck has a two-way adjustable truss rod.
A Hipshot adjustable bridge/saddle assembly that allows the strings to attach directly to the guitars frame.
Relish Guitars for coming up with such a unique body shape. This double cutaway guitar is not a copy of anything else on the market. The Jane model comes in walnut, ash, cherry, blond flamed, white, gray/black and Bordeaux.
Unlike the Jane model, the entire back side of the Mary guitar is removable to access the pickup connectors if there is a need to change them out and also to attach the strings to the tone block on the underside of the Hipshot bridge/saddle.
The maple neck is bolted to the alder or ash frame by means of 4 bolts and a metal plate and is hidden away beneath the instruments back veneer.
This guitars neck is topped with a fretboard made of dark woven bamboo with stainless steel frets. There are no position markers on the fretboard.
