The Quarzo Standard is the latest from Canadian-based luthiers, Morifone. It has all the quality of a bona fide classic, but isn’t afraid to strike out on its own.
Here’s how the makers describe their new product:
“Built from the finest tonewoods and following the construction methods of the golden years of the electric guitar, the Morifone Quarzo has a tone reminiscing of the late ’50s vintage instruments and offers the playability of modern guitars.”
Indeed, the specs of this new guitar are based on the “1959 Burst.” This includes a mahogany body and neck with a figured or plain maple top, topped with an ebony fingerboard.
The modern improvements include a double action truss rod, belly contour and floating pickguard. Pickups can be customised with a choice of the whole Lollar Humbucker range.
