Dunable Unveils the DE Series—An Affordable Line of Boutique Metal Guitars

Dunable is a modern, boutique guitar brand based out of Los Angeles, California that we've written about a time or two here on Reverb over the past few years.

Dunable guitars are beautifully crafted and appeal primarily to metal players—which is unsurprising, with founder Sacha Dunable (guitarist for progressive metal group Intronaut) at the company's helm. They've been seen gracing the stages of bands like Russian Circles, High on Fire, Power Trip, and more.

But if there's one thing that can detract regular buyers from picking up a Dunable guitar, it's the price. As a custom guitar and pickup company based out of the U.S., costs are understandably high, which can be prohibitive for younger players and hobbyists. That's why we're so excited today to see that the brand has unveiled a new line of more affordable instruments.

"These guitars are designed and built in California by guys who spend their time off from work playing guitar through loud amps, so we know what works," Sacha Dunable says, and this line aims to be no different. To keep costs lower, the new DE Series is produced in "one of the world's most respected manufacturing facilities" in Asia, which the brand promises adheres to the same stringent quality control Dunable has become known for through their U.S.-based operations.

The new Cyclops and R2 DE Series models are available for preorder now in two colors—matte black or tobacco burst—and are outfitted with Dunable Cthulhu pickups. Right now, early bird pricing is $899 USD for the Cyclops and $999 for the R2.
