Introduction

When people thought of a “master musician” in the past, they would’ve thought of the classic image of an uptight snob in an overly elegant room, but nowadays we can observe all kinds of amazing players arise through social media and demonstrate their mastery and skill regardless of where they are from or their background.
The Modern Virtuoso series is a new series of Momose Custom Craft Guitars manufactured in our Aska Factory in Matsumoto City, Nagano, that respects the history of traditional electric guitars and has been finely tuned to accommodate the necessities of the modern musician. We develop electric guitars that fit the modern music scene where guitarists can become master musicians.
A lineup that transmits all the value bestowed by being produced by skilled craftsmen at the Aska workshop which started operations in 1977 and has steadily accumulated technology, technique, and experience for over 40 years.

Features

Quartersawn Maple

The Superior structural integrity of the quartersawn maple increases the stability of the neck and contributes to maintaining it in a proper string action with good playability, helping a player achieve the best performance possible.

GOTOH® Pickups & Bridge

Equipped with reliable Gotoh 2-point support tremolo unit.
The 510T series does not follow conventional vintage style but instead pursues the goal of greater tremolo functionality. It has a low clearance arm system of our own design. To guarantee a strong and hard-wearing tremolo blade, extremely resilient chromium-molybdenum steel was adopted for the plate. It’s finished with high-grade heat treatment and precision machining. It’s a 6 pivot point type, the same as the synchronized style, and a 2 pivot point anchor nut type, which incorporates stud lock (PAT.)* In addition, GOTOH’s original FST feature (PAT.) between the saddle and ball end, keeps the strings from touching the plate. Because of them, the unit’s ability to return to tune when using the tremolo arm is significantly improved. The 510TS comes with the popular steel block as standard. (Quoted from GOTOH’s website)

Hipshot® Machine heads

Uses Hipshot rock tuners first released in California in 1983. Precisely cut 18:1 gears and nylon bearings combine to keep your tuning experience feeling smooth and maintain tune for years to come. The mounting tuners have different post heights for each string, giving proper tension to each nut. This mechanism eliminates the need for string guides.
For example, when doing extreme arming, the strings wound around the string guide and peg posts ahead of the nuts are strings that can cause plenty of problems and mess with the tuning when returning from the arm down. By using Hipshot’s lock tuners, the winding of the strings is almost eliminated (about halfway around the peg post), and it is not held by the string guide. This greatly improves the tuning stability after arming.

Frets

With decades of experience producing precision components, Jescar is one of the most reliable sources of quality fret wires. Jescar frets offer players the benefits of greater hardness and tighter grain structure for better durability and enhanced playability as well as an incredible surface quality for a brighter appearance and smoother finish.

High-density oiled bone nuts

The nut material we selected for the Modern Virtuoso series is water buffalo bone which has a higher density and more stable quality than a regular bone nut. We set up a strict quality standard and only use ones whose specific gravity is more than 1.7. 
It is a similar value to the one found in ivory, which has a specific gravity of between 1.7 and 1.9. With a higher density and specific gravity, it securely supports strings and transmits their vibration onto the body without any loss.

Kazuki Isogai’s comments

「このギターを手にしてまず最初に感じたのは弦のテンション感が軽くて弾きやすいことです。最初は細いゲージの弦が張られているのかと錯覚してしまった程です。音は良い意味で軽さがあり、程よいコンプ感がある感じがしますね。
とは言え、リアピックアップにした時はしっかりと低音がでて細く感じないのが良いです。これから弾きこむともっと鳴っていく予感がします。ボディは重いとはあんまり感じないですし、少しスタイリッシュな感覚があります。そしてmomoseはネックが強く安定しているので反ったりは滅多にないですね。レコーディングでも使いましたが、サウンドエンジニアやアレンジャーからの評判もとても良かったです。
色んな現場で安心して使える1本だと思います」


*November 30, 2022, Due to the discontinuation of the use of Madagascar Rosewood fretboards, the fretboard material has been changed to Indian Rosewood. Accordingly, the notation at the end of the product name has been changed from “NJ (=NewJacaranda: Madagascar Rosewood)” to “R (=Indian Rosewood)”.
