Dieter Hopf – Manuel Adalid Artista Membrane Classical Guitar, 2009

Dieter Hopf - Manuel Adalid Artista Membrane Classical Guitar, 2009

Dieter Hopf’s family has been building for over three centuries, and his collaboration with Manuel Adalid, the Artista Membrane, uses the newest techniques. This unique design is a limited double top – the marked oval area visible on the cedar top is less than 2mm thick, but lattice braced with a carbon fiber layer. The result is an exceptionally loud voice, its tone tempered by the standard cedar top areas, with great projection.

Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002

Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002

Introduced in 2002, the Duesenberg Starplayer Special uses the classic bolt-on design, with a full 25.5 inch scale maple neck on and alder body with humbucking pickups. The neck sports an Indian Rosewood fingerboard,  with Mother of Pearl dot inlays.  It is a straightforward guitar, delivering exactly what it advertises. This early Duesenberg Starplayer Special, built during 2002 – the first year of production – is in very clean, all original condition. It plays very well and has just the slightest wear, even to the frets. The original Duesenberg hard shell case is included.

Hofner Club Bass Cavern Spacing, Amber Burst 2018

Hofner Club Bass Cavern Spacing, Amber Burst 2018

This new Hofner Club Bass offers a couple of special features. The top and back are nicely flamed, and the bass is finished in an amber shaded varnish. The pickups are placed in ‘Cavern Spacing’, meaning the neck and middle positions are used. While this seems counter intuitive, it’s done because in the bridge position, signal can be fairly weak, and those pickups are often not used. The middle position gets a much stronger signal from the strings.
