Morifone has just unveiled the Quarzo Standard electric guitar. It wears its influences on its sleeve, but is striking enough to carve out its own path.
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.
