Fibonacci handcrafted guitars have revealed their latest creation this month, completing this beautiful Ambassador. Hand finished by acoustic builder James Millman, using his secret Devon guitar oil mix, retains the natural aesthetics and the responsive acoustics of this guitar.
The Ambassador is a beautiful archtop in it’s simplest, most understated form. No bling, no fancy inlay on the fingerboard, no quirky headstock. Just a very simple design aesthetically, with the main focus being on its performance.
It has a body size of 400mm (16”) lower bout width, 76mm (3”) depth, As standard, the Ambassador is formed from a parallel braced, hand carved AAA spruce top, and hand carved AAA flame maple back and sides. It is fitted with a ‘C’ shape maple neck, dove-tail joined at the 14th fret, with 14” radius ebony fingerboard, and 20 Jescar EVO gold frets. The peripherals are hand profiled ebony finger-rest, tailpiece, and floating bridge with bone saddle.
The Ambassador is a very special guitar, and sounds every bit as good as it looks. It can be finished in nitrocellulose lacquer or oil. The Ambassador comes standard fitted with an OX4 hand wound set-in humbucker with ebony pickup ring, or a floating KRIVO, or a series/parallel split floating Jon Dickinson PAF.
The James Millman oiled Ambassador they currently have available, is fitted with a floating KRIVO pickup and is now ready for immediate dispatch, shipped in an ivory Hiscox case. You can find more information on this particular guitar here:
