Corvinho SD (The Blues Machine)


‘The Blues Machine’

This version of the Corvinho is named the SD for  blues maestro Shane Diiorio

who suggested this pickup combination (tele bridge and mini-humbucker neck)

and who has been so instrumental in us advancing as guitar makers.

His advice, encouragement, enthusiasm and

playing have been inspiring.

We fitted these pickups into a semi-hollow Mountain Ash body

designed to be somewhat Tele-like but with it’s own distinctive look and feel.

Combined with a Mountain Ash neck with Maple fretboard,

this became the Corvinho SD.

On first playing it Shane immediately dubbed it ‘The Blues Machine”.

*Note*: The original SD had a Maple top to the body, the later version is all Mountain Ash.
