Handmade instruments are integral to the Magneto brand, and now they are bringing their old world design and styling to two new guitar models straight from Matsumoto, Japan.
Born from the minds of Kei Yatsuzuka and Christian Hatstatt, the Sonnet and T-Wave are Magneto brand guitars featuring a light body shape, Canadian maple, American alder and East Indian rosewood. While the woods, output jacks, CRL Switch and CTS Pots of the Sonnet and T-Wave electric guitars are imported, all the other guitar parts and sections are made and assembled in Japan. The Magneto guitars also feature bone nut materials and custom wound pickups. Pickups are constructed using AWG 42 wire and Alnico 2, 3, and 5 rods.
Both guitars are available this fall.
