PRESS RELEASE - MI PRO MAGAZINE ON THE FIBONACCI CALIFORNIAN
Here we have the latest press release on our Californian model by MI PRO Magazine. You can read the full content online at:
The Californian is available with either black or gold hardware, and a UK RRP of £2,799.
Fibonacci Guitars has introduced its new Californian archtop model with hand carved, seasoned, 35mm AAA select American flame maple sound-board facilitating a substantial arched top with maple back and sides.
Trimmed with single ply, solid maple binding throughout, the neck construction consists of flame maple with an ebony fingerboard. The bridge, finger-rest and tailpiece are all hand crafted in solid Indian ebony.
Completely hand wired in shielded, steel braided cable, for increased performance and stability, the acoustics of the Californian are enhanced by a ‘6-Shooter’ Kent Armstrong set-in humbucker, warmed up with oil and paper 0.47 capacitor, which complements the guitar's rich tones.
However, there is more to this guitar than just its stunning looks. The pots used are a combination of 500k audio sweep CTS and Bournes with push/pull switching, allowing the player additional flexibility to utilise the series/parallel wired humbucker for an increased variety of tones.
“The Californian, fitted with black or gold hardware, is a compact, robust, yet acoustically delicate instrument, with the capability of putting a smile on any player’s face,” said Fibonacci.
