Firstly, Fibonacci wish to apologise for the Newsletter ‘radio silence’ over the last couple of months. The bottom line is that amongst holiday’s, creating lots and lots of sawdust in the workshop, and a bout of covid amongst staff, admin duties have been somewhat neglected recently. Having said that, we are always active on social media if you want to catch up on the latest news there. Anyway, let’s get on with some news!
CUSTOM 7-STRING AMBASSADOR
We thought we would share this beautiful 7-string Custom Masterbuild Ambassador with you that we just completed. Completely handmade to our client’s specification, in our opinion, the result is near perfection with its contemporary F-holes makes it aesthetically refreshing, sublime playability, and the deep hand carved arches make it wonderfully responsive acoustically. The standard Ambassador is already a beautiful archtop in it’s simplest, most understated form. No bling, no fancy inlay on the fingerboard, no quirky headstock. Just a very simple design aesthetically, with the main focus being on its performance. But this 7-string Custom Masterbuild Ambassador is something special.
It has a body size of 400mm (16”) lower bout width, 80mm (3.25”) depth, parallel braced, hand carved AAAA Carpathian spruce top, and hand carved AAAA European flame maple back and sides. It is fitted with a ‘C’ shape maple neck, dove-tail joined at the 14th fret, with 14” radius ebony fingerboard, and 20 Jescar EVO gold frets. Every aspect of this guitar is individually custom made such as the ebony finger-rest, 7-string tailpiece, floating custom made bridge. It is even fitted with a one off custom made Jon Dickinson 7-string floating PAF, nestled inside one of our maple pickup covers. You can find more information on our Masterbuild range of guitars on our web site.
