Maestro Guitars will be revamping our acoustic steel-string custom line of instruments. The old models are known as: SINGA, ROSETTA, VICTORIA, ALPHA, BRILLIANCE. Some of these models are full solid while the others are solid back with reinforced sides.
The new models will be relabeled by style of the body:
SINGA: Medium Jumbo style
ROSETTA: Dreadnought style
RAFFLES: Small Jumbo Style
VICTORIA: Triple O style
BETA: Current Entry level Custom series in dreadnought style with Solid Sapele Back/Side.
A 2 alphabet abbreviation will be attached to the end of the model to indicate the wood (Back/Side) used. All new Maestro custom series will only be produced in Full solid editions from Winter 2010. We will not be releasing any more Solid back instruments under the custom series. They will be released under the Elite series from time to time depending on raw material availability.
Some Common back/sides alphabet abbreviations are:
IR: Indian Rosewood
SR: Santos Rosewood
FM: Flame Maple
K: Koa Pili Koko (Acacia)
ME: Macassar Ebony
Catalog and Website will be updated in the near future to reflect these new changes.
