We design and build guitars that look and sound outstanding, AND feel unlike anything else.
If you are playing 2 hour gigs or do full day studio sessions, the last thing you want is an uncomfortable, unbalanced guitar. This is where we excel compared to other brands. We have made some smart modifications to the old concept.
The necks on our instrument will not get thicker near seamless joint. This means playing the first fret feels just as comfortable as playing the 22nd fret. Your thumb will not hit a clunky neck joint when you reach for those higher registers, thanks to a very smooth transition from neck into body.
Not just a nice looking headstock, but also a smartly designed one. The higher strings have a very short distance behind the nut and tuning mechanism. This ensures minimal detuning will happen to the strings that are the most prone to detuning. The angled nut ensures every fret on every string produces a magnificent intonated pitch.
Something as simple as moving a strap knob can have a profound effect on the way your guitar is balanced, the way your strap hangs and how your cable flows behind your strap. This will allow you to effortlessly balance your guitar and play long hours without getting a tired fretting arm.
On all our instruments, we make sure the position of the pickup switch (or switches) are never in the way while playing, but easily accessed when you need to change your sound. You will never accidentally switch to another position, just because you strummed that last chord with your massive arm swing.
Fantastic appearance and sensation without any compromise to the sound.
Having custom pickups means that they are a perfect match for the guitar. We designed the pickups to work especially for our guitars. Many of our humbucker guitars models feature a split coil switch, and a lot of configurations. The typical combinations are of course possible, but Bo-El can also make you the unusual ones by desire. So you can get that classic sound, or something more unique.
