RODRIGO D’ERASMO is a violinist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, and classically trained producer. Since 2001, he has recorded dozens of albums worldwide, collaborating in studio and live with numerous bands and artists including Mark Lanegan, Muse, Damon Albarn, Rokia Traoré, and many others. Since 2008, he has been a member of Afterhours.


The body of the guitar is made of figured maple, with a spruce top from Val di Fiemme (1999), selected for its beauty and acoustic properties. The neck and fingerboard are made of figured maple and ebony, ensuring comfortable and smooth playability. The guitar is equipped with a Mastery Bridge, allowing perfect intonation and excellent tuning stability. The electronics have been carefully chosen: a set of Humbucker pickups splittable to tone and specifically designed for this guitar. The guitar has been hand-finished with the utmost attention to detail, with a shellac finish that gives the guitar a brilliant and warm shine typical of classical instruments.


The binding is thin and detailed, handcrafted with the utmost precision, just like on a violin. Additionally, the design of this artisanal electric guitar features two "eff" holes that recall the characteristics of the famous "cannon" violin of Paganini, built by the renowned luthier Guarneri del Gesù. These details give the guitar an elegant and refined appearance, evoking the majesty and beauty of the classical violin. This entirely unique model is a true masterpiece, capable of blending the art of traditional lutherie with the most modern technologies and innovations. The result is a powerful and crystalline sound, with an elegant and refined aesthetic reminiscent of the finishes of the classical violin.


Every instrument made in my workshop is unique and tailored to the musician who will play it. I work closely with my clients to understand their needs, aesthetic preferences, and expectations. This personalized attention ensures that each instrument is a unique work of art that reflects the personality and style of the musician.
