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 Twinbuddy – with an alder body and walnut neck, the Twinbuddy is more Gibson in spirit, with less weight and different woods, while its Benedetti Rawbucker pickups offer a very old fashioned humbucking spirit for the neck with a touch more modern grain for the bridge. The custom wraparound is a stunning yet functional mix between simplicity and efficiency. This particular Twinbuddy has a dazzling textured metallic plum finish and weighs in at 6.8 lbs.
All the Alquier/Dupont Fastbacks have a 24.92 inch scale length and set neck construction with satin finish on the necks.
