FIBONACCI GUITARS MARCH 2018 NEWSLETTER!
A HAPPY St PATRICK’S DAY! It took almost a year to complete, but as the saying goes, better late than never. Having said that, this one off mint green Chiquita was finished just in time to celebrate St Patrick's day, 17th March, 2018. Fitted out with black Gotoh hardware, ebony appointments, and a black Kent Armstrong floating humbucker, love it or loathe it, it certainly turned a few heads when we posted a few pictures on Facebook! Wishing all our Irish friends a very happy St Patrick’s Day! A GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL! Being a producer of high quality archtops, our approach allows us the flexibility to offer our customers a variety of options on finishes, at tremendous value. Noting that the savvy guitar buyer in the market is opting for a more exclusive, bespoke product, we are well positioned and flexible enough to offer a variety of options. We do not undertake large volume production runs, as all of our guitars are genuinely hand - made, with peripheral parts hand profiled 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 ability to experiment with limited edition, custom colours and offer finishing and hardware options to our customers' specifications, should someone desire something different. 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, and have the privilege of working with some of the top players in the World. We are here to create nice, quality instruments at a reasonable price and are 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. Our guitars have been individually and meticulously hand carved with much attention given to detail and finish. Here we have just a few pictures showing a glimpse of just some of the work involved to create the pickup cover on the new Martin Taylor Joya model. So either way, standard or custom, we can assure you all of our guitars have been produced to the highest of standards.
