2015 Echopark El Cabillo CASE STUDY – MINT

2015 Echopark “Case Study” El Cabillo.  This was custom ordered by a customer who then fell in love with something on my site and traded…hint hint.   If Dumble made a guitar my sense is it wouldn’t be far off from this.  Trust me…I wanted to ‘poo poo’ it…but this thing is smooth sounding….with sustain. The notes are just frankly beautiful.  Played through a clean to moderate gain amp it is simple responsive, soulful and inspiring.  I’ll be looking to acquire more for sure.

Mint nonsmoking condition.  Just a couple of months since delivery.  LOADED with features such as a Brazilian Board, fat C neck profile, Arcane Pickups, Koa Top.  G&G Hard Form Fit Case & Cert (of course).  No visible fret wear.

2015 Fibenare Semi.

2012 D’Pergo Signature Ltd – Custom Color – Mint Cond

2012 D’Pergo Signature Limited.  Where Do I begin?….well for one, these are the pinnacle of F-style guitars.  SO very few are made.  Each is now custom commissioned by the buyer and takes years to complete (with a long backlog).  Stefan D’Pergo (for short) painstakingly selects aged woods including river recovered old growth woods renowned for their tonal superiority (and huge costs).  Hand carved necks and bodies.  Hand forged bridges.  Hand wound pickups using select wires.

The result?  Many assert that there is no finer.  The satin finish on the offset neck is soft to the touch, fast and allows you to handle a slightly larger neck than you may believe you are used to and fatter equals tone).  The weight is 6lbs-11oz…find a trem strat that uses the impossibly rare woods, is hand crafted and comes in at this type of weight.   The tone is SO musical and even. Every note sounds like it belongs to the same instrument (unlike the others that sound like a bunch of pots falling from the Sanford & Son truck).

EVERY D’Pergo sounds different…hand crafted instruments do that.  I have personally sold over 40 D’Pergos in our short history.  I have more experience with them than almost anyone else on the planet.  This is a large investment, allow me to help you determine if this guitar is right for you.  I specialize in helping people avoid waits while getting a guitar that fits them.  Order one for yourself?….ok….wait the several years and you get what you get tonally….no tears…now they ALL sound amazing..BUT how are you going to feel if yours is a tad bright and you want warm?…sick….that’s why people buy from me.

Gil Yaron Strat

Gil Yaron Strat!  Impossible to find new or used.  Just 7lb-7oz and loaded with aged parts & aged tone.  Not sure how Gil does it but somehow his guitars SOUND old.  That metallic yet slightly rounded off thing going on.  Fat and clear.  This won’t split glass in half like most starts.  You will think your current production guitar is a skinny-minnie tonally after you play this.
