Dioneo

A Dioneo is where the tradition and the modernity meet each other. We’re preserving a fine traditions of crafting a handmade custom string instruments. Each guitar has its own individuality being a result of the scrupulous work. At the same time we don’t want to be tied at backward designs and techniques and we have something new to offer the world!

Unique Construction

Body and neck are made of a two lengthwise Sapele halves sawed from the same board. This unique construction responds as one piece but at the same time has incredible strength and stability. The result is a clear attack, natural tone and endless sustain! Also we tried to preserve as much wood as possible so pickups and control cavities was routed as small as possible. Less is more and less joints and less cavities is always more sound!

Lengthwise halves
Neodymium Pickups

Neodymium Pickups

Neodymium as a strong magnet material has a numerous advantages over alnico or ceramics. It has bright, almost active-like sound with highs and lows unperceptible by regular pickups. We make all types of pickups: single-coils, humbuckers, splits, blades.

Selected Wood

There are a lot of mahogany species available for guitar making but Sapele stands apart from most of them. It is the strongest and hardest wood from all mahagony family. And what really makes this wood so special is its appearance. Of course we can build a guitar for you from almost any wood but Sapele is our wood of choice!
