Julie | Steel-String

Steel-string Model: “Julie”

Julie is Manuel’s wife, muse, and his greatest inspiration. Julie’s angelic voice is what caught his attention for the first time at the church when they met. Julie has the ability to sing in low and high registers, hypnotizing you with her silky tone and strong command. This is the sound of the “Julie” guitar.

Featuring a custom body style designed by Manuel, much pride is put into its construction. With its unique design, players will find this model to have a balanced smooth tone that fills the room with a kick. The bridge is an artistic version of a dove, unique to this guitar. The “Julie” is available with a cutaway and has a solid neck. The body is built around the neck for optimal vibration and acoustic sound. The instrument pictured has a solid Carpathian Spruce top, Indian rosewood sides/back, Maple binding, African ebony fingerboard/bridge, and Honduras mahogany neck. This model is also available in many wood combinations.

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.

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.
