Magneto Guitars will be showcasing its latest build, the exquisite-sounding Velvet Deluxe at NAMM 2024. A redesign of the Velvet Custom, it has been built to offer a lightweight 24 3/4”-scale set-neck guitar with pickups tailored for clean and overdriven tones in equal measure.  

African Mahogany makes up its body, which also features a chambered top, and neck, whilst a rosewood fretboard boasting Magneto’s signature rhombus inlays. A neck-to-body transition was carefully sculpted to increase access to the higher frets.
