FIBONACCI GUITARS FEBRUARY 2018 NEWSLETTER!
2018 CATALOGUE AVAILABLE NOW!
After fine tuning our catalogue off and on, for the best part of a year now, we are pleased to let you know that it is completed...well almost! By way of explanation...there will be a few more models being released over the course of 2018. However, given the enquiries we have received from people asking us to send them our catalogue, we felt it was important to make it available now, to show our current models. During the course of this year, we will add the new models as we release them. So, with all that said, our new 26 page catalogue is available for download in PDF format from the ‘MEDIA’ section on our web site. Enjoy!
DIABLO OX4 HUMBUCKER, HAND-WOUND IN OXFORD
Our Diablo model comes standard with the Kent Armstrong 12 Pole Magnum humbucker, which is a brilliant sounding pickup. But, we wanted to offer something a bit more unique which covers all the tonal spectrums a guitarist may look for, be it in the studio or during live performance. With that said, and in constant search of this ‘Holy Grail’ of pickups, Fibonacci Guitars teamed up with OX4 Pickups in Oxford. We asked Mark Stow, the brainchild behind the OX4 operation, if he could design a humbucker for our Diablo model. We certainly were not left wanting. After prototyping a few different winds on the Diablo, Mark really nailed what we were after, top end clarity and the voice of the guitar. The Diablo OX4 is a magical pickup, and all are hand-wound and assembled to order in the UK by Mark himself. He uses only ‘top shelf’ components and vintage correct materials. The Diablo OX4 pickup is wound at 7.7k, bang in the “sweet spot” range to offer that top end clarity.

Alnico 4 magnets - Low wind with 42 PE wire - Wound to 7.7k - Powder coated black covers - Gold plated pole screws - Cool offsets for maximum clarity - Single conductor or 4-way split wiring with push-pull switching option.
