Belltone Guitars Unveils Made-to-Order Platform Featuring B-Classic Models

The overall styling is a hybrid based on design inspiration from the early LP and T-Style guitars combined into one unique body shape.

Miami, FL (October 5, 2020) -- The new Belltone Electric Guitar Models 'B-Classic One' and 'B-Classic Two' are the foundation for the new Custom-Select System customization build platform from BelltoneGuitars. These two variations of the same model differ slightly as one has a flat top and top edge binding and the other has body/arm contours and no binding. The overall styling is a hybrid based on design inspiration from the early LP and T-Style guitars combined into one unique body shape. Along with the body shape, the neck profile, headstock, and the custom built hardware all reflect the Belltone design perspective and aesthetic.

The Custom-Select System affords the guitarist to choose from a carefully curated collection of elements such as body color, pickguard color/material, pickups, and neck and tuners to create their own 'signature' on the look and sound of the guitar. They will be available as ‘made to order’ and are handcrafted here in the USA.

Playing a melody or solo with a “drone” means playing over just one note or, in some instances, one chord. Besides playing without any harmonic accompaniment, it is about as simple a concept as one can image, which also means the possibilities are endless. We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
