Every Malinoski guitar is a unique work of art.

Peter Malinoski has been building, or rather, sculpting unique instruments since 1984. Rather than making another version of a traditional design, Malinoski is as much a sculptor as luthier, with his designs have a form and shape that's highly individual, yet reminiscent of classics. Each guitar is built from scratch, including hand-wound pickups that, once again, have their own sound, yet contain echoes of the sounds that stick in your memory.

Malinoski describes the HiTop as "muscle car — compact and muscular, aggressively styled and more about power than speed." That being said it's an extraordinarily comfortable guitar to play, and very forgiving of your speediest licks. This particular variant features Malinoski's Type 2 humbucker,for tone that hits the classics, but with enough added power to be at home with a more modern approach to playing. Includes deluxe hard case.
