The Asgard takes a lot of cues from the curves and shapes found in Nordic and Viking design (hence the name) mixed with a very 70s feel. The body is two-piece Southern yellow pine with the grain pattern exaggerated rather than flattened as is more usual. Featuring a subtly sparkled smoked perspex pickguard and brushed aluminium control plates sweeping across the body, offset with two very cool genuine NOS 70s knobs. Bridge duties are taken care of by the new Bifrost bridge, with its aluminium plate construction and large surface area it offers a huge increase in resonance over more conventional designs. Zona's own hand-wound pickups provide clear bell-like tone and optimum flexibility of sound.
