First scketched on a napkin back in 2002, it took about six years of development and experiments to reach the final design and balance.
Inspired from the evil Silmarillion's outrageous antagonist, Morgoth quickly became the most distinctive and representative design of my production.
GNG MORGOTH YS6
"Never played a finer guitar before in my life.
The aesthetics are a perfect match for the quality of the sound and playability."
(Robert Roller - USA)
Morgoth is a modern and original shape, dressed with hand carved tonewoods, carefully selected worldwide for the best figure, stability and tone properties.
The proportions are studied for the perfect balance (have you noticed the longer upper horn?).
Other improvements reside in the comfortable grip-shape of the lower horn, raising the guitar to the perfect angle when playing seated; the easy access to the higher frets has plenty of space for the most confortable shredding in higher range.
Available only with carved top, doesn't look that good with flat top.
GNG MORGOTH DRV7P
After years of experiments, I've finally reached an extremely comfortable neck profile.
With his elliptical shape, the proper grip is always available along all the edges while, as it gets almost flatter in the center, it allows tireless hours of study and rock performances.
Other traditional or custom profiles are available too, just tell me your preferred neck style or hand size.
Since 2006, stainless steel frets are included in all my guitars, due to the unbeatable performance superiority and lasting unwearable feature of the hard, hi-polished surface: expect to go faster and play cleanly.
You can choose to enrich the aesthetics of your custom Morgoth with any inlay imaginable,
I use a large palette of materials: stones, precious shells, resins, exotic woods and metals.
You can even have your fretboard glossy finished with all the colors you desire.
