FIBONACCI GUITARS JULY NEWSLETTER!
Noting that the savvy guitar buyer in the market is opting for a more exclusive, bespoke product, Fibonacci, being a small, versatile producer of high quality archtops, our approach allows us the flexibility to offer our customers a variety of options on finishes, materials and hardware. We do not undertake large volume production runs, as all of our guitars are genuinely hand made, with peripheral parts hand profiled to fit perfectly to each guitar individually. We keep a very small quantity of stock on hand, finished in our standard colours ready for dispatch. This gives us the flexibility to experiment with limited edition, custom colours and offer finishing and hardware options to our customers' specifications, should someone desire something different. In fact, we recently had the pleasure of working With Ciyo Brown to produce his signature CB10 Chiquita fitted with a second floating humbucker fixed at the bridge position. We have experimented with plenty of dual set-in pickups in the past but this was a first for us, fitting a floating bridge pickup. So with a .47 oil and paper cap fitted to enhance the Chiquita’s sweet tone, a couple of Bourne push/pull switches, and some extra bracing on the floating pickguard, the bridge floating humbucker worked a treat. Ciyo seems to be a very happy with his custom Chiquita given his numerous comments on Facebook. Currently our product range consists of lower bout body sizes of 13”, 14”, 15” and 16” in a variety of depths, some of which have a distinct contemporary vibe. These compact designs are aimed at the aspiring player who may be more familiar with playing a smaller, solid bodied guitar, but now finds him or herself venturing into the world of jazz archtops or, for the traditional jazz player who may find handling a larger archtop a cumbersome task. We are very fortunate to have some great people involved at Fibonacci. We are here to create nice, quality instruments at a reasonable price and thoroughly enjoying the experience along the way. Either way, contemporary or traditional styling, standard or custom finishing, being a small, boutique guitar company, producing relatively limited quantities of archtops of distinctive quality in a year, it is critically important for us to ensure that our products are without exception of the highest standard.
