LERXST Launches Limelight – The Alex Lifeson Limited-Edition Signature Guitar
Alex Lifeson and Lerxst have just announced the launch of Limelight, a new signature guitar created in partnership with Canadian manufacturers Godin Guitars. Inspired by Lifeson’s iconic Hentor Sportscaster guitars from the mid-80s, Limelight thoroughly reimagines Lifeson’s original concept with modern part selection and craftsmanship to create a high-quality, forward-thinking instrument designed for today’s players.
“The original Hentor brought together a mix of tone and playability that empowered me to explore sounds and styles of playing that I had never attempted before,” said Lifeson.
“Ultimately these things became signature parts of my style. When the idea came to reimagine this guitar it made sense to partner with innovators like Godin who I knew I could trust to utilize the advances in technology and manufacturing skill to create something that could power a new generation of players looking to push their own boundaries.”
The Lerxst Limelight features a contoured Swamp Ash body for premium comfort, a Hard Rock Maple neck with a 12” radius, an Ebony fretboard, and medium stainless steel frets for fast and intuitive playability. Like Alex’s original modified S-type guitar, this has an HSS pickup configuration for maximum versatility, with pickups custom-wound by Mojotone to Alex’s specifications to ensure balanced performance in all pickup positions, and monster tone. Players have a choice of the classic Floyd Rose tremolo system or a Vega Trem with 18:1 locking tuners for superior trem performance with rock-solid tuning stability.
