Date:
August 2008

White Lily – Blondie VI

Client:
Paul Muszanskyj

Description:
Custom built 6 string electro acoustic full body guitar.

The Brief: This design developed out of the old impossible dilemma of an acoustic with a deep full bodied tone that sounds great acoustically and then it also having to perform as well as an electro-acoustic on stage, with no feedback.

A tall order for anyone, but you can tell this is the sort of challenge Dietmar enjoys.

Construction: Employing a Florentine cutaway for greater upper fret access and visual appeal the guitar plays with a 15 degree angle matched through the sound hole angle of the shoulder and cutaway through to the headstock. Giving this particular acoustic a quirky individual slant.

Unusually for an acoustic this model also uses a blonde wood neck to work with the very blonde nature of the rest of the instrument, accented with black binding and ebony fingerboard and fittings. The wood is close grained and designed for a bright acoustic response with good bass end resonance, isn’t that what every acoustic player wants.
