MELOGUITARS | EM3
Josep Melo’s family background allows him to combine intellectual work with craftsmanship. From a very early age he was obsessed with making guitars: as he grew older they went everywhere with him and he began to build up a collection. Apart from playing them he also studied their form, their design, their sound, the wood they were made from… The collection grew and so did his knowledge which was clearly contributed to by his training as a designer, and this afforded him a rigour in his work and in his thinking.

EM3

IN MEMORY OF JAMES L. D’AQUISTO

 

A thinline electric guitar featuring internal hollow sound chambers which contribute to its distinctive timbre, superior balance and precise sound. A single Bartolini pickup is mounted in the neck position and the passive electronics feature a three position coil tap switch which allows for a wide variety of tonal possibilities. The EM3’s smaller body size, lightweight and 24 fret neck make for superior playability and comfort.
