Vintage vibe that doesn't break the bank!
If you're looking for a budget electric but want something with personality, Belvedere Deluxe by DiPinto Guitars may be exactly what you need. It features a double-layer semi-hollow mahogany body, single f-hole, two-tone finish, massive paddle-shaped headstock and small humbucking pickups.
The Belvedere Deluxe's light, semihollow body provides rich resonance and percussive punch, and its mini 'buckers deliver fat tone that still has plenty of bite. The three-position pickup-selector switch and master volume and tone controls produce everything from a raucous rockabilly twang to a sultry jazz swing. In overdrive, the Belvedere growls with a vicious bite and howling sustain that are perfect for blues dogs and rock hounds alike.
Featuring a comfortable, 22-fret painted maple neck, 24-3/4-inch scale and bound ebony fingerboard, the Belvedere's neck feels and plays like a real vintage guitar. Although the body looks large, the guitar weighs much less than most hollow and semi-hollow electrics and is comfortable to play for hours on end. The tastefully designed single cutaway provides excellent access to the uppermost frets while it complements the Belvedere's classic lines. Acoustically the Belvedere guitar is loud and punchy; amplified it sounds immediate and full.
The Belvedere's distinctive retro design, combined with its many usable tones, sets it apart from other instruments on the market. If you want to stand out from the crowd and sound like a star, the Belvedere Deluxe is the best way to get noticed.

Comments about DiPinto Belvedere Deluxe Electric Guitar:
Love this guitar! To be honest, when I went shopping for a new electric, I wanted something similar to the various Gibson Les Paul's and Melody Makers that I own but that had a different vibe. This guitar has ME written all over it. I ordered it without much hesitation solely based on the looks, minimal features, and the fact that I needed another backup for a backup. This guitar is amazing - it's like a les paul junior but with a little more kick when the pickup's switched to lead. Playing live, I run through an Orange Tiny Terror and Silvertone Twin Twelve 1484 most of the time and this guitar shines! Pretty much never switch the pickups, just keep it on the lead and roll off/on the tone/volume knobs to get the sounds I want. The guitar is built like a rock, although a tad larger in the body than I expected, but nonetheless, it's pushed it's way to the front of the rotation on stage. It's easy to play even with the .13's I string it up with and the tone is sweet - kind of reminds me of an old Harmony Rocket hollowbody I traded a few years ago...still is the one I regret. But no worries, this star-studded guitar has filled the void. rock it up y'all!
