Barchetta FM 3

Flame Maple Top

A favorite of guitar players, Flame Maple provides a stark "flame" contrast between the darker and lighter grains creating a sort of "zebra" effect in the wood. Accented with Transparent finishes, it's tough to make a prettier guitar. Like Quilt Maple, Flame Maple is added as much for its tonal properties as its vibrant appearance.

 

Abalone Binding

Stunning real Abalone shell is inlayed around the edge of the body accentuating color through the broad range of dynamic colors inherent in the shell providing a brilliant finishing touch of class and style.

 

Abalone Headstock Inlay

Stunning real Abalone shell is inlayed around the edge of the headstock accentuating color through the broad range of dynamic colors inherent in the shell providing a brilliant finishing touch of class and style.

 

Transparent Finish

Transparent finishes are among the most desired in guitars as they allow for both the unique color and the natural grain of the wood to show through. The darker grain provides a dynamic contrast to the lighter grains giving you a 3-Dimensional and unique look.

 

String Thru

A classic design, the DBZ String Thru models what is often considered the pinnacle of sustain. Our String Thru design with Tune-O-Matic bridge provides for amazing performance and feel, with string thru patterns enhancing the look of your guitar.

 

EMG Pickups

EMG Pickups started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. A distinctive look and sound, there's simply not mistaking EMG pickups.

 

Grover Tuners

Often considered the world's finest tuning machines, the Grover tuners are a triumph in engineering and style. The housing provides a maximum bearing for worm gear and string post and designed to eliminate backlash and slippage. Countersunk tension tension screw permits players to regulate turning tension to any degree. Gear box has a special lubricant for lifetime, trouble-free service.

 

Contoured Set Neck

DBZ's Contoured Set Neck method is arguably the most popular neck joint style amongst high-end electric guitars. The set neck is carefully cut to match its mounting point on the guitar body and the two sections are joined to maximize strength and minimize neck wiggle. Most notable is the amazing feel of the neck joint when you need it most - near the highest frets. Our contour feels fast, comfortable and as if the neck joint isn't even there.
