** Please watch video** (Heavy / Clean tones)

 Note from Bruno: To me Vincent Latulippe is Luthier's world best kept secret. The man KNOWS how to build killer guitars.  100% Handmade in the small village of Saint-Calixte, near Montreal (Canada)

Latulippe Vortex screams (literally) high gain heavy guitar!
The spalted maple top looks stunning and is the perfect match for those two high gain ferocious Bare Knuckle NailBomb pickups.  Every aspect of the design (essence of woods, electronics, shape, set neck etc ) was carefully though to achieve maximum tight bass frequencies and rich harmonics. It's a very "focused" guitar...

All this attention to details also comes handy in the the CLEAN tones spectrum perfect for Fat Jazz and even Country Rock flavors.  (watch video) The Kahler Tremolo system is an extremely well made device. It's stays in tune no matter what and can even be set to be a fixed (locked)  bridge using the mini Allen key screw at the back of the bridge. This could come handy in certain situations (like studio work).  We'll included the locking nut that comes with the Kahler should you decide to have the guitar in full locking mode. 

The Killswitch /volume knob is a cool feature that gives the players countless ways to explore/improvise new ideas...throw in 2-3 with pedals and let your creativity flow!  \m/
