Brea takes the name from a little village in the Middle-Earth's fantastic world, based in a strategic position where all the different creatures and races met together:
The principle is a mixture of all the best solutions of the guitar-making history, merged into a new modern improvement of the traditional double cutaway shape.
GNG BREA PK6 - C.PIETRONIK
"Beside incredible aesthetics?....TONE! When I plugged the guitar...wow! It was like my amp always missed something, until now."
(Marco Di Vitantonio - Italy)
GNG BREA IDS6
A classic design, revisited to fit the needs of modern musician and follow the playing techniques evolution. With a better reach of the higher frets, a versatile scale length (25,34") to reach an impressive balanced frequency response, snappy and concept-tuned handmade pickups, a lighter and more responsive headstock. The lower strings profile allows a more confortable picking techniques, resulting in faster and clearer performances. A wide variety of tonewood combinations available, to perfectly tune and match the combination that fits best for every single musician, with his own needs and personal tone-research.
Can be enriched with a handcarved figured tonewood or with a luxurious 1/4" drop-top with smooth elbow and belly contours, carefully selected worldwide for the best figure, stability and tone properties.
The proportions are studied for the perfect balance (have you noticed the shorter headstock and longer upper horn?). The access at the higher frets has plenty of space for the most confortable shredding in the higher range.
