Montreal, Canada (October 16, 2019) -- With the release of the Galo, Island Instruments’ Nic Delisle dives into the world of offset guitars. The model pays homage to the Danelectro Dano Pro and the Fender Jaguar, while mashing both together with plenty of Island style. The Galo showcases Nic’s favourite wood combo: a Sitka spruce body, perfectly quartersawn poplar neck and perfectly quartersawn torrefied maple fretboard. The guitar has a 24” scale length and 1-5/8” nut width, with a chunky C-profile offered standard (thickness and shape are customizable). The Galo comes loaded with Mojo UK pickups and can be had with 3 singlecoil sized pickups, 2 humbucker sized pickups or 2 Jazzmaster pickups. Given Marc’s extensive pickup catalog, this means it can be loaded with just about anything including goldfoils (humbucker or singlecoil sized), p90s, lipstick tubes (pictured) and more – something for every tonal arsenal. It sports a Hipshot TOM-style bridge and will come with the new Descendant vibrato as standard but offer the Mastery as an option as well. The Galo manages to capture the feel and vibe of a vintage catalog guitar while maintaining buttery playability and being made from the highest quality components and materials.
