Hutzel | Square Neck

Square neck resophonic Model: “Hutzel”

The Hutzel name comes from Hutsell in Athens, Tennessee where Manuel’s father-in-law was born. He named the resophonic after him because although his appearance is striking, you sense a warm, gentle figure. However, there is an inner strength and depth that is hidden inside. This is the Hutzel sound.

The Hutzel is a unique design. The body is built around the neck (not a slide in neck) which creates a strong, solid transfer of the vibrations. It includes “triangle back bracing”(c) and sound posts all built from solid wood. The marriage of these features, with a mahogany rim for the cone to rest on and a classical-like bracing on the top, creates a tone like no other. Not only does Hutzel sound great, he has sustain and volume to compete in any bluegrass or country jam. You won’t get a “tinny” metallic sound with Hutzel. He was designed to allow the voice of the solid woods from the top and body to sing. Available in multiple wood combinations.

I promise, you’ve never heard anything like it!

I don’t know what I love the most about Delgado guitars, the way they look or the way they sound. I did a gig the other week at a club playing I had five separate people come up to me while I was still on stage and ask me what kind of a bass I was playing. They all complemented on the sound but I can guarantee you they all noticed the instrument as soon as they walked in the door. Three of them were guitarists, one was a bassist, and the fifth one was a drummer! Manuel has an unlimited amount of knowledge and attention to detail that is rare to find in anyone, regardless of what business you might be in. Delgado guitars not only look and sound great, they are inspiring each and every time you pick one up. It doesn’t get any better if each time you pick up your instrument, you are inspired to play or create.

I have played with lots of different guitars and grew up in a family of Greek musicians. The one thing I noticed immediately with Delgado guitars is that It had an authentic spirit. I got excited again for the first time in years to hold and play a guitar. The love put into the instruments built gives me the feeling that it has a heartbeat of It’s own. I look forward to writing my songs through it.

I decided to return to the guitar at age 56 after recovering from a heart transplant. I wanted a single instrument that would last a life time. What I received from Manuel was a work of art that has a beautiful voice and a soul as well.
