Pointy, shiny, and impossible to miss, DiPinto guitars marry vintage '60s import aesthetics with modern precision craftsmanship for a signature in both look and sound. Offering both handmade and less expensive but still quality factory-made lines like the iconic Galaxie or newcomer Mach IV, this boutique heavyweight started in 1995 with Chris and Sophie DiPinto making guitars for friends and acquaintances. More than 20 years on, their guitars have been embraced by the likes of Dick Dale and Rick Nielsen and brought vintage cool to the people without vintage price.
