All under carriage components are machined in our own factory machine shop to tolerances only suitable for Mullen guitars.
Under carriage is designed clean and is very easy to service or to make pedal setup changes.
Pedal rod hookup is easily accessible.
No fishing through rods and other parts making setups easy.
The Mullen guitar pickups are designed exclusively for Mullen steel guitars.Pickups must match the characteristics of the guitar. This is a must to achieve the ultimate tone and response. Off the shelf pickups usually do not meet our standards.
The rollers and nut support assembly, are precision machined in our machining department to our exact specifications. Tolerances on rollers are maintained to one half of one thousandth. Rollers are machined from brass and are designed with an extended center hub to eliminate side drag. They are also mounted on a 3/32" diameter shaft to eliminate roller friction.
Changers are designed to pull on center as indicated by the white line. This eliminates the changer levers twisting when pedal or knee levers are pushed. The control levers are spaced to allow the pull rods to pass between them eliminating a place where dust and dirt can build up, which can cause the changer not to operate correctly. The levers do not touch each other. The rollers are anodized to prevent strings from wearing grooves. They are machined with a string slot and a shoulder to catch the string end if the string breaks.
Each raise and lower lever operates independently in a slot machined in a steel changer return stop plate to insure perfect alignment and a rock solid return position. Mullen guitars are detailed with components not found on most guitars today. Each return spring incorporates an adjusting screw easily accessible at the end plate. Details such as this is what makes the Mullen steel guitars a guitar you can be proud of and enjoy playing.
