Ebony pickup frame for a Fender guitar (Fender fail)

A simple realization of Cesarini Custom Shop, an ebony pickup frame for single coil mod. Telecaster, on Fender guitar (DOBRO style).The end of the intervention is to raise the maximum possible pickup height, given the constructive lack of Fender on this model we will remedy.

Fender Resonant
Fender Resonant, errore di produzione

This is a constructive fail on Fender’s building, that is quite serious

The use of resonant winding cords (bronze or phosphor bronze) actually requires a smaller distance between the rope and the magnet. In this guitar this distance is too much (over 20mm), preventing the output signal from having attack and volume.

Alborosie, a guitar man?

Alborosie comes back to Jamaica with a little gift!

The sound of this guitar (Eko, artisan production), which mounts the C-Big Beat (Cesarini Pickups) seems to have impressed him. Valter Vincenti, his guitarist and our dear friend, should have finished the tour with this guitar, but we will find a solution for him!

These are things that can not be predicted … he told me he felt in love!

C-Reptilia, a Masterbuilt – custom guitars

C-Reptilia, sharp like a knife!

custom guitars

It is part of the Masterbuilt series, which are custom guitars completely customized and crafted.

The sound of his pickups (Cesarini pickups) and its shapes wink at the Ibanez guitar concept, but the fingerboard, the neck, the tuners and the bridge maintain the Fender Stratocaster characteristics. Jescar fret (USA) semi-jumbo (about 2.4mm) gold button in stainless steel, approx 1.2mm high crown (therefore quite high), allowing a perfect intonation and sustain.

Typical strat electronics, tone-tone-volume with 3-way switch and addition of a selector to have the versatility of the sounds (combination of bridge + neck and three pickups together).

The pickguard is special, a mirrored and split polycarbonate, creates a reptile-like armor effect, hence its name. The varnishing  helps to strengthen the “iguana” effect.

Stratocasterian neck, thick on the width of “C” shape but larger to the nut. From there the strings go straight on to the peghead, where the angle is studied to perfection, so that there is no need for the string D-G to have a retainer, which often makes these two hard registers to play at the top positions. Wilkinson tremolo bridge, beautiful fluid, which does not lose tuning easily.

C-Gold Bronze, vintage bass guitars (Cesarini Vintage Series ’60)

C-Gold Bronze
C-Gold Bronze

Cesarini Vintage Series is the collection of our vintage assembled instruments. Restored parts, which were part of vintage instruments from the 60s – 70s and 80s, come back together to constitute an entire philological guitar or bass guitar, which we then optimized to the best of its potential.

Vintage pickup per basso

The C-Gold Bronze pickups have been restored, very particular and very quiet, which give the bass a full sound between the single coil and the precision, a formidable attack given the ceramic magnet and a very pleasant nasality given by the metal mask type PAF Gibson.

The cable was interrupted, so we only rebuilt the coil and redone the already existing beeswax shield (wax potting).

The varnish is Cesarini Sienna Burst, that is a Fender sunburst with a glossy open pore.

The detailes of our vintage bass guitars is at this page (learn more).
