Vibrance® Guitars is pleased to announce their official debut of fine hand-crafted electric guitars at Summer NAMM 2013 in Nashville, TN (Booth #1467). Vibrance® Guitars feature American Black Walnut back/sides and neck-through construction, chambered or hollow-body construction, and a wide variety of exotic top woods, all of which can be custom ordered by the discerning player who possesses an unflinching penchant for tonal excellence.
Each tonewood variety offers unique timbre-specific properties that can be catered to a player's unique and personal tastes:
From the all-around versatility and superb tonal balance of Padauk, the up-front-and-aggressive response of Wenge, the mid-range complexity and grit of Canarywood, or the spongier give-and-take of Spalted Maple, players can consult with luthier Craig Collins to find their perfect tonal soul-mate of woods and electronics. Other fine top woods on offer are American Black Walnut Crotchwood, straight-grained American Black Walnut, Purpleheart, Bloodwood, Bubinga, and others, all of which present the discriminating player with a wide-ranging myriad of tonal options.
Each guitar is hand-made by luthier Craig Collins in limited runs, built to an exacting level of care and detail and all guitars include the following standard features: custom hand-made bone nuts, hand-rubbed oil finishes, all wood neck-binding, fret inlays and side dot markers, hand-selected electronics such as higher-end CTS® pots, Luxe® Bumblebee or Jensen® PIO caps, optional coil-splitting or 'varitone' style rotary-switch configurations, various bridge complements, light-weight Hipshot® locking tuners (18:1 ratio), as well as many other customizable options such as pickup choices, fingerboard scale-lengths, standard nut or zero-fret design, fretboard woods, etc..
Each Vibrance® guitar is a unique one-of-a-kind instrument with its own unique voice and personality and each instrument is a true labor of love.
