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 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 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.
