Marquet Guitars Renaissance
Nashville-based Marquet Guitars has released the Renaissance inlaid electric guitar.
Thanks to a combination of 22 years of experience and computer technology, the brand claims to make inlaid guitars more affordable than ever for artists and collectors alike.
The body and neck are carved out of Equatorian mahogany into a design which undoubtedly will look familiar to any guitarist out there. Scale length is 25" with 24 frets and a 12" radius, which aims at giving this vintage-styled guitar modern playability. Fret wire is said to be 18% high alloy nickel-silver for superior tone and fret life, while the fretboard is made of Indian rosewood.
Pickups are Lindy Fralin Tone Masters with gold covers. Tuners are high quality Sperzel with bright gold finish. The body and neck have inlays of awabi, agoya, abalone and paua shell veneer using a high-precision laser pocketing and cutting process. The inlaid guitar is then fully sealed and finished with a low mass hard polyurethane coating to preserve the tonal qualities. The neck is equipped with the Earvana compensated nut, which the brand claims to be able to deliver the highest level of intonation available. Each guitar can also be individually crafted to specific customer order.
Marquet Guitars' Renaissance model is now available for an MSRP of $2,995.00.
