You may not have heard of DiPinto guitars before, but the Belevdere is a throwback to old school guitars of the 60’s with lots of pizazz and flair. Talk about sparkle and plastic! If you’re looking for a budget electric but want something with personality, Belvedere Deluxe by DiPinto Guitars may be exactly what you need. It features a double-layer semi-hollow mahogany body, single f-hole, two-tone finish, massive paddle-shaped headstock and small humbucking pickups.The Belvedere Deluxe’s light, semihollow body provides rich resonance and percussive punch, and its mini ‘buckers deliver fat tone that still has plenty of bite. The three-position pickup-selector switch and master volume and tone controls produce everything from a raucous rockabilly twang to a sultry jazz swing. In overdrive, the Belvedere growls with a vicious bite and howling sustain that are perfect for blues dogs and rock hounds alike.Featuring a comfortable, 22-fret painted maple neck, 24-3/4-inch scale and bound ebony fingerboard, the Belvedere’s neck feels and plays like a real vintage guitar. Although the body looks large, the guitar weighs much less than most hollow and semi-hollow electrics and is comfortable to play for hours on end. The tastefully designed single cutaway provides excellent access to the uppermost frets while it complements the Belvedere’s classic lines. Acoustically the Belvedere guitar is loud and punchy; amplified it sounds immediate and full.The Belvedere’s distinctive retro design, combined with its many usable tones, sets it apart from other instruments on the market. If you want to stand out from the crowd and sound like a star, the Belvedere Deluxe is the best way to get noticed.
