The stunning new generation Rapier 22 is a product design from Alan Entwistle, the UK genius guitar designer responsible for a host of successful guitar lines and accessories.

Dual Pickup Design

The original double pickup 22, hails from the Rapier Series of electric guitars that played a major role in the industry of British guitars. This legendary guitar served countless up and coming 60’s British Beat groups and helped launch the careers of many guitarists in the 60's and 70's.

Whilst Entwistle has successfully retained all the glorious charms and visual characteristics of the original ‘legendary’ Rapier 22, significant and meticulous attention has been made within hardware upgrades, construction and playability for this fabulous new model.

High Quality Construction

Selected specifically for its natural sonic characteristics, Okoume, from Central Africa, is the chosen tonewood for the body, whilst for speed, comfort and accuracy, the 4-bolt, soft ‘C’ profiled neck with fully adjustable truss rod, is now crafted from hard rock Canadian maple, with a 12in radius rosewood fingerboard, fitted with 23 medium jumbo frets (including zero fret).

Rock Solid Hardware

For accurate intonation, tuning stability and perfect return to pitch from the original vibrato design, the exciting new Rapier 22 now features a smooth, friction-free, precision cut 43mm nut, Wilkinson machine heads and high spec’d roller bridge.

Excellent Electronics

Stunning looks aside, modern upgrades also include pickups, internal wiring and controls which have all experienced Entwistle’s magical touch.

A pair of Entwistle low noise EWR64 mini-double coil pickups, with exceptional tonal response, balanced output and clarity are now installed and, with the 3-position pickup selector switch wired for bridge - bridge+neck - neck positions, both pickups feature individual mini Bass-Cut switches which, along with separate volume controls and a global tone control, offer a host of versatile sounds including that classic and much-loved 60’s jangle.

"Both Volume and Tone controls are wired with 500k pots, linear and log respectively," says Alan "And, with jazz and blues players in mind, the Tone control includes a 0.015 mfd cap which retains clarity when wound back, whilst also delivering that classic, rich response when played with overdrive or distortion."

Now with upgraded hardware, exceptional playability and performance, the new generation Rapier 22, will not only evoke nostalgic memories for old-school players and collectors, it’s also the professional choice for Britain’s new young talent.
