The glorious American design of the early 2oth Century is reflected in this unique instrument. Classy but seductive - the RadioStar (Cithara Decoris) was featured in Bob Shaw’s book, “Electrified: The Art of the Contemporary Electric Guitar.”
"We could make barred chords at the 17th fret and beyond without effort. The bony bass tones make playing power chords a real delight. Plus points: design, construction, tonewoods, hardware, pickups, sounds, assembly and price." - Guitarre & Bass Magazine
- Each Lospennato guitar is handmade from beginning to end. There's no "custom shop" line; each guitar that leaves Lospennato's atelier is a custom music machine.
- Original, eye-catching design, well away from the traditional models (and their infinite copies) that have been flooding the market for decades now.
- The finest available wood, certified by FSC.org as coming exclusively from environmentally, well managed forests.
- Freedom Neck, a new, unique ergonomic shape.
- Fretboard with compound radius, for a lower string action.
- Handmade, compensated nut made of bone, for a long sustain and a perfect intonation across the whole fretboard.
- Salt and Pepper controls - on-board sound processing controls that you won't find in any other guitar.
