It’s a new, but balanced, breed of Italian musical craftsmanship. The instrument? The Di Donato guitar.
Sleek, with clean but elegantly classic lines, the guitar combines innovative design with traditional hand finishing to produce a distinctly made in Italy sound. If the shape looks familiar that’s because Edoardo and Enrico Di Donato, who used to build classical instruments such as violas and cellos, based the guitar on the shape of a violin soundboard.
I’m kind of tone-deaf so I can’t fully appreciate the tonal qualities of the aluminum frame and wood body that have the guys over at the guitar magazines all excited (think adjectives like “optimal” and “exceptional”). I can tell you that the design is so ridiculously attractive it got me image searching the web for more pictures.
Ah, I almost forgot! this guitar is “just” a beginning: the Di Donato Bros. have created it as the first guitar that can be re-built to suit your needs. Not clear? If you don’t like the way the neck pickup sounds, then all you have to do is replace it. Same thing for all the wooden components (though, obviously each Di Donato piece is only interchangeable with another Di Donato piece)! The Di Donato is custom made to order and can be bought directly from the manufacturer.
