DiPinto Guitars Introduces Galaxie 4 Deluxe

DiPinto Guitars has announced its new Galaxie 4 Deluxe model. It's the latest addition to the company's Modern-Retro guitar line.

The rest of this story is from a DiPinto press release:

DiPinto Guitars has always been known for using the coolest parts and materials, and the Galaxie 4 Deluxe is no exception. The pickguard and the headstock feature a rare stock of wild limited Sixties plastics.

Combined with the four-pickup and four on-off rocker switch lay-out, pearly tuning pegs, Sixties gold reflector knobs, binding, block inlay and a surfy whammy bar, the Deluxe pulls off an authentic Sixties look while still being and an original design and not a reissue.

The Galaxie 4 Deluxe may look like a pawnshop prize but high-quality parts and modern design ideas were incorporated to make a high-end reliable instrument. All DiPinto guitars are designed by Chris DiPinto and professionally set-up in Fishtown, Philadelphia.
