FIBONACCI GUITARS JUNE 2019 NEWSLETTER!
MARTIN TAYLOR LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD We would like to extend heartfelt congratulations to Martin Taylor, for his being the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award at the recent Scottish Jazz Awards. And while here, we would like to let you know that we did some extensive filming recently, with Martin as host, for his Patreon membership web site. This filming showcased some wonderful playing and great conversation with Giorgio Serci, Ciyo Brown, Nigel Price, and Martin Taylor. These videos will be coming soon as part of Martin’s Patreon membership, beginning with Ciyo in July. CIYO BROWN AND HIS CARVED TO DIABLO CB-12 It was great to see Ciyo Brown when he came over to collect his new carved top Diablo CB-12. It was even better to see the great big grin on his face when he opened the case. This is Ciyo’s second Fibonacci guitar, the first being a Chiquita with dual floating Kent Armstrong humbuckers. The Diablo is a completely different gem. It has a carved spruce top, flame maple back and sides, and a 350mm lower bout width, 44mm depth, florentine cut-away. Fitted with dual, set-in humbuckers, the Diablo has a handwound OX4 on the neck, and a Kent Armstrong ‘Six-Shooter’ on the bridge. Both pickups are split, with push/pull switching, and a 3-way toggle switch for pickup selection. Ciyo's Diablo is finished in antique honey nitrocellulose.
