da capo gt deluxe

Built with KT77s, this living-room-worthy, stage-ready combo rocks out in 40W/20W modes and comes stock with a 12" Celestion alnico Cream speaker.

Based in the Flemish region of Belgium, Da Capo manufactures totally hand-built, valve-driven guitar combination amplifiers of the highest quality.


With switchable 20watt Studio and 40watt Stage outputs, the Da Capo GT Deluxe Series 1x12 class a/b amplifier, features circuitry designed in-house by respected engineer Guy Tiels, delivering sweet, hot-valve musical cleans, with an abundance of harmonic induced sustain when pushed to its natural overdriven voice.

"The Da Capo GT Deluxe Series brings a fresh new approach to tube amp design," says Da Capo owner and founder Nicolas Acou. "There's a noticeable increase in clarity and separation within chords and lead lines, what you hear from the speaker is an open and direct, unimpaired translation of the guitar, with exceptional focus and definition.

Gain is fun in all its forms, from overdrive to fuzz, but let’s talk about a great clean tone.


We’re all here for one thing. It’s the singular sound and magic of the stringed instrument called the guitar—and its various offshoots, including the bass. Okay, so maybe it’s more than one thing, but the sentiment remains. Even as I write this, my thoughts fan out and recognize how many incarnations of “guitar” there must be. It’s almost incomprehensible. Gut-string, nylon-string, steel-string, 12-string, 8-string, 10-string, flatwound, brown sound, fuzztone…. It’s almost impossible to catalog completely, so I’ll stop here and let you add your favorites. Still, there’s one thing that I keep coming back to: clean tone.

A supreme shredder’s signature 6-string dazzles with versatility.

This immaculately built guitar sounds great and can do it all.

The more affordable price is still out of reach for many guitarists

$2,799

Charvel’s first Guthrie Govan signature model was released in 2014, after an arduous two-year effort to get the design just right. Since then, the guitar—now in its second edition—has become one of Charvel’s most coveted models. Unfortunately, its $3,699 price keeps the U.S.-made axe out of reach for many.

This year, though, the company released the Made-in-Japan signature MJ San Dimas SD24 CM, which sells for a slightly more manageable $2,799. Needless to say, that’s not cheap. But depending on your priorities, it’s a fair price for a very high quality, pro-level instrument.
