STANDARD FEATURES

RESONANT &
LIGHTWEIGHT TONEWOODS

Every Magneton guitar is made from the best possible materials.

 

Every piece of wood is –without exception – personally selected by Andy. 

 

The criteria for choosing a piece of wood are:

Sound characteristics, resonance, structure, visual appeal and, last but not least, weight.

ONLY THIN LACQUER AND ALL NITRO!

Compared to a factory guitar wrapped in a thick and highly glossy layer of polyurethane varnish (which is actually a 1–1,5mm coat of hard plastic), the wood of a Magneton handbuilt guitar can sing. 

Andy applies very thin coats of vintage style nitro lacquer to let the woods breathe and resonate.

That's a difference you can feel and hear.

STAINLESS STEEL FRETS

Every guitarist knows that the frets on his or her guitar have to be replaced at some point. Why? Because the (nickel) frets on 99.9% of guitars out there are simply weaker than the strings. 

Therefore, Andy uses Dunlop's ultra-hard and durable stainless steel frets on all Magneton Necks. These frets last a lifetime.

 

Also they make bending a lot easier and sound exactly the same as standard frets. All in all, only advantages for you – the player!

On the other hand, working on stainless steel frets is much time-consuming – the stuff is so hard! It simply means more hours of sweaty manual work. As a result of the durability of stainless steel, the tools have to be replaced more frequently. The frets are simply stronger than the files in the long run – and stronger than your strings, too!
