AT THIS PRICE, THESE ALQUIER-DUPONT FASTBACKS QUITE POSSIBLY REPRESENT THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK WE'VE EVER OFFERED!
This new, gloriously stylish, incredible sounding guitar is an outgrowth of Alquier's fastback design and is being produced in partnership with famous French luthier Maurice Dupont, one of the most revered guitar makers in France.
The Fastback and its derivatives are unique, utterly brilliant designs that will leave you breathless with their automotive-inspired curves and ergonomics. All Fastback models are made with non-exotic wood.
Introducing the Fastback Codetalker – with its alder body and maple neck, the Codetalker is Alquier's Telecaster interpretation embodied in the Fastback design. It uses the mini humbucker 'lafayette' custom neck pickup by Benedetti which gives a nice warm and punchy sound, and the Benedetti bridge which adds that twangy Tele spirit. This one has a stunning textured metallic gold flake finish and weighs in at 6.6 lbs.
All the Alquier/Dupont Fastbacks have a 24.92 inch scale length and set neck construction with satin finish on the necks.
