Di Donato, a luthier's company in Venice, Italy, has launched a new electric guitar applying concepts from their experience crafting violas and cellos.

The instrument is built with a casted aluminum body and an upper wood element for ergonomics and tonality. The aluminum body is countered similar to the soundboard of a violin and designed to transfer vibrations to and from other parts of the instrument.

 

The neck, which is attached to the aluminum part of the body, is almost headless and features a proprietary locking system. Di Donato says this makes the guitar more balanced in weight and tonal response. The necks are made by hand with "tap tested" pieces of wood.

Every instrument is handcrafted and customizable, down to the handmade pots and interchangeable electronics. The pickups are mainly single-coil and are also hand-wound by Di Donato. The company describes them as between a P-90 and Jazzmaster-style pickup, though they say they are also working on a dual blade humbucker.
