handmade electric guitars


La cloud

This guitar is a homage to Prince. It is a reference to the famous Cloud, which was built by David Ruson in 1983 for Prince for the first time.

The guitar was designed in the summer of 2016 for a performance at the rock festival "L'Umbria che spacca" in Perugia, whose motto was "Rock is dead". There, various instruments were hand-painted.

The "Cloud" was painted by the Italian artist Daniele Pampanelli, who then sent it back to me for the final completion.

The painting is covered with a nitrocellulose lacquer in many thin layers to protect it. I refrained from converting the entire surface into a mirror-flat surface, since a millimeter thick lacquer layer was necessary and the original character of the painting would have been lost.

La Híbrida

Semiacoustic guitar with a very special construction. The basis is the frame taken from the cut of a solid body guitar. the Little Sister.

The idea behind it is to make good use of the high quality tonewood that is left when you build a solid body guitar. An environment-friendly approach we're very proud of.

 

The tremolo is mounted in an unusual way, that you normally won't find in a semiacoustic guitar: it passes through the body, like in many solid body guitars. A frequency fine tuning is reached through the adjustment of the bridge; when left floating the top vibrates freely, giving a pleasant and very musical compressing effect, and a full tone with endless sustain.

 

If the bridge is adjusted flat on the guitar top, it gives a faster and stronger attack and a low frequencies tight response. Changing the tension can move or eliminate the feedback frequencies. This is particularly useful when playing in very loud situations.

 

The guitar has a very nice acoustic and electric tone, a warm sound with plenty of harmonics. Played acoustically it sounds louder than a solid body guitar, which makes it the perfect choice to play unplugged in the nighttime.

 

Three handwired P90´s give many different sound combinations.

Little Sister

It is called Little sister because its body is made from the same block of Swamp Ash used for the frame of La Híbrida.

 

The guitar is made of two pieces of Swamp Ash with a bolt-on Birdseye Maple neck, and it is also available with an Alder body.

The neck pickup is a handwired Grube single coil with a chrome cover.

 

A special Schaller P90 pickup with double bobbin in the bridge position allows two different configurations. The true, rough P90’s sound with just one bobbin, or a hotter, hum free tone with both bobbins on.

 

This guitar has Gotoh tuners and a Wilkinson tremolo. Future models will be also available with Schaller hardware and handwired humbuckers or a classic P90 in the bridge position.

La Semi

The frame of this guitar is made of the same wood block used for the Cadillac. It is the very first instrument made with this techinique.

 

The guitar has a Maple top and a American Mahogany bottom. The central block is also made of Mahogany. The neck is Maple with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard. The pickups are mounted in the central block and not on the guitar top. This special construction greatly reduces unwanted feedback.

 

All Grube semiacoustic guitars are equipped with P90’s or mini humbuckers, to avoid mounting the pickups on the top.

The guitar sounds much better than regular machine-made semiacoustic guitars, because of the Maple top, that is made with the same technique used in high end archtop guitars.

El Dragon

One of my personal guitars. El Dragon has a classic design.

The body is made of American Mahogany with a European Maple top.

 

Chambers carved in the body reduce the weight. The Maple neck has an ebony 24-fret fingerboard. The dragon inlay is made by hand and gives the guitar an individual and peculiar taste.

 

The two handwired humbuckers have an important role in creating the great tone this guitar provides. Two push-pull potentiometers let select between humbucker o single coil.
