Heres some of the Darkfires features:

Headstock:
- Gibson Darkfire vintage Traditional Flowerpot headstock inlay from the 1920's. With a red Darkfire truss rod cover.
- Upgraded Powerhead tuners, for self tuning from the Master Control Knob.

Nut:
- Self lubricating teflon nut.

Neck:
- Classic Block inlays made of acrylic and carbon fibre. This design was used in Gibson 335's from the early 1960's.

Pickups
- New Gibson P90H pickups at the bridge, to give that classic single coil sound but designed to stop the hum
- BurstBucker 3 pickups
- Piezo bridge pickup

One of the most unique features of the Darkfire guitar is its Chameleon Tone Technology which allows the guitar to change its tone to many classic sounds even to make it Telecaster or Strat like.
Check this clip of Bumblefoot playing an instrumental of Better from the new Gun N' Roses Chinese democracy album, the guitar has that single coil strat quality to it. Truly amazing.
