FIBONACCI GUITARS NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER
WELCOME TO OUR NOVEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER
FIBONACCI CUSTOM MODELS
In addition to our standard models, we sometimes have guitars available that are prototypes, ex-demo models, custom, non-standard finishes, or have an interesting pickup configuration. These seem to get snapped up rather quickly as they are quite often a one off, or are produced in very limited numbers.
Here we have just a few of the custom guitars that you may find interesting. These are models that we are currently working on, or have recently been finished. All custom and non-standard models come with a full warranty and have been given the same tender loving care as our standard models.
CALIFORNIAN - HAND RUBBED, OIL FINISHED IN ANTIQUE BLONDE
We have been experimenting in oil. Nitrocellulose lacquer has excellent acoustic properties while providing a deep gloss finish to a guitar, but you can’t get much closer to having nothing on a guitar than using oil. This 15” hand carved flame maple top Californian, has all the usual features as our standard model, but is hand rubbed and oil finished in antique blonde. It looks, and sounds, amazing. In fact, it sounds so good we may not put a pickup on it. By placing an ambient mic at the tailpiece and 12th fret, we have really captured the acoustic ‘woodiness’ of this stunning archtop.
DIABLO - CARVED FLAME MAPLE TOP, CUSTOM FINISHED IN COBALT BLUE NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER WITH OX4 PAFS
We just finished this beautiful carved top, flame maple Diablo. (Diablue) It was custom finished in a stunning cobalt blue nitrocellulose, for our customer in Ireland. This one has a pair of OX4 PAFs, handwound by Mark Stow in Oxford, with push/pull Bourne switching, hand profiled ebony pickup rings, and floating Tonepro AVRII bridge. The result plays, looks, and sounds fantastic. If you would like a custom finished Diablo in the same colour, drop us an email or give us a call.
