Rodrigo D'Erasmo Signature

The new Pegaso model, produced in the Liuteria Sala workshop, was designed to meet the specific needs of Rodrigo d'Erasmo, the violinist of Afterhours.

The guitar's body is made of figured maple, with a spruce top from the Val di Fiemme (year 1999), carefully selected for its beauty and acoustic properties. The neck and fretboard are crafted from figured maple and ebony, ensuring comfortable and smooth playability. The guitar features a Mastery Bridge, providing perfect intonation and excellent tuning stability.

The electronics were carefully chosen, including a set of Humbucker pickups that can be coil-split, specially designed for this guitar. The guitar has been meticulously hand-finished with a shellac varnish, giving it a shiny and warm finish characteristic of classical instruments. The binding is subtle and intricate, handcrafted with the utmost precision, much like that of a violin. Additionally, the design of this artisan electric guitar model incorporates two "F" symbols that reference the characteristics of Paganini's famous "Cannon" violin, crafted by the renowned luthier Guarneri del Gesù. These details lend the guitar an elegant and refined appearance, reminiscent of the grandeur and beauty of the classical violin.

The woodwork process was executed with great attention to detail, using traditional techniques to create a balanced and durable wooden structure.

This unique model is a true masterpiece, blending the art of traditional lutherie with the latest technologies and innovations. The result is a powerful and crystalline sound, with an elegant and refined aesthetic that evokes the finishes of a classical violin.
