The StrettaVita

Chicago, IL (April 19, 2012) – Guitar designer Dean Zelinsky announces his new company Dean Zelinsky Private Label Guitars. The brand is comprised of Zelinsky’s latest creations, which includes the Tagliare and Zenyatta models. The StrettaVita, a reincarnation of a Zelinsky classic, will be offered for the first time ever as a hollow-body. These recent designs along with Zelinsky’s new cutting edge "Z-Glide" Reduced Friction Neck (patent pending) are the bedrock of his new company. The entire line will be available early fall of 2012.

"Z-Glide" Reduced Friction Neck

The Z-Glide guitar neck will be available as an option on all Tagliare models. The Tagliare – a three single coil, bolt neck guitar – is a departure for Zelinsky, but as he states, “a natural progression once I designed the Z-Glide.” The Z-Glide utilizes a laser-textured surface designed to let your hand glide effortlessly up and down the neck. The Z-Glide will also be available on select StrettaVita models featuring bolt neck construction on a single cutaway, dual humbucker guitar.

The Tagliare

“Design Your Own” – a feature of the Tagliare line – will be offered in addition to the stock models. Consumers will have the option to customize their guitar online and instantly see their creation by simply clicking their mouse. They can then purchase the Tagliare they designed direct on the Internet.

The Zenyatta

The Zenyatta features an oversized but ultra-thin body design – an award-winning Dean Zelinsky innovation. The single cutaway Zenyatta features deep carving and highly sculpted aesthetics that adds a full “bull nose” edge - something not yet seen on production guitars.

Dean Zelinsky Private Label Guitars will be offered worldwide through authorized dealers and on the Internet. Prices will range from $299 to $1299. Select USA made custom models are priced from $3599 and up.

Muse returns to self-producing on Will of the People, an album teeming with formidable anthems that navigate themes of fear, politics, dystopia, compliance, corruption, and other topics concerning the world order.

Decked out in black ninja-like uniforms with mosaic mirrored masks obscuring their faces, Muse opens their current shows with the powerful, sing-along chant of “Will of the People,” the anthemic title track off their latest album. From that song’s infectious shuffle until the very end of the concert’s encore, people are jumping out of their seats, and appear to be completely mesmerized.
