Each guitar will feature JBE custom pickups.

Lengardo Milano

Manassas, VA (January 15, 2015) -- Lengardo Guitars, a subsidiary of Swiss instrument maker Phaselus SA (Fae-se-lus), has selected JBE Pickups for inclusion in their new line of high-end custom electric guitars for the North American market. The line consists of three of the most popular guitar styles:

  • The Milano – a Les Paul styled instrument
  • The Torino – a stylized Strat/Jag body style
  • The Venezia – a semi-hollow body in the ES-335 style

“Lengardo guitars are designed for discriminating artists who require high-quality design, features, and performance. Among the most important aspects of our guitars is the selection of the best hardware and an opaque finish for improved elasticity and tone. This special elasticity allows for better diffusion of vibrations throughout the whole instrument, resulting in a perfect synthesis between wood and hardware”, said Roberto Upazzoli, President, Lengardo Guitars.

Also announced in the Lengardo line is the JBE Series for the Milano and Torino models. “I am extremely pleased that Lengardo reached out to JBE Pickups to include our pickups as options in their beautifully crafted instruments. We were happy to work with them in the development of our HB-Mini pickups, which are just one of the JBE pickup models available for the Milano and Torino models” said Frank Troccoli, President, JBE Pickups. Lengardo guitars also have several switching options that best demonstrate JBE Pickups’ high-fidelity performance and flexibility that gives guitarists more tonal options.

Lengardo Guitar MSRP prices range between $2,400 and $4,250 depending on model and configuration options.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
