Whether talking about fast cars, or stitched suits, there is little competition to the designs the Italians come up with. Other than their traditional arenas of expertise in design, they seem to have ventured out into the area of musical instruments, which will carry forward the special touch they are known for. Brothers Enrico and Edoardo DiDonato have been exploring the arena of making guitars, and their latest offering is a hand crafted electric version of the instrument. Modern design and technical perfection rarely saw such a unique blend before.
The body of the guitar which we mainly speak of uses aluminum along with wood like mahogany, rosewood at just the right places, in the perfect shapes possible. This perhaps is the reason why you would find the tonal quality of such high precision. Also, the shaping which has been borrowed from a violin’s soundboard, helps transferring tonal vibrations to different parts of the instrument, making certain delicate frequencies more profound and precise. The choice of wood have been done to ensure that the quality of sound output is as authentic as possible, and each since component has been crafted by hand, nothing short of the best can be expected from the instrument.
In terms of other mentionable electro add-ons would be, the dual JP90 didonato pick-ups, ABM Headless bridge tuners, gold and stainless steel frets, and 1 control switch for the volume and tone each. Since these guitars will be individually made on order, there are various options in terms of wood to be used such as Quaterswan Maple, Spanish Cedar, Madagascar Rosewood, Amazon rosewood, and also pickups such as single coil or hum bucker. The total cost for each of these masterpieces would be $5,500.
