The new Magneto Velvet takes the 2 humbucker guitar to a whole new level. It was designed to have a broader tonal range; fat and focussed mids when played with drive but enough treble and quack to serve the classic clean tones…

Magneto designed the body and the neck in order to influence the guitar’s vibrations while improving its ergonomy. The body is a 1-piece mahogany with a 10mm bound maple top, the neck is made of mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard topped with jumbo frets and was shaped to a C profile for playing comfort. The headstock is angled to 17° for great string pressure resulting in better vibrations.
