If you’re not familiar, DeMont Guitars has a close relationship with Guyatone – Japan’s first electric guitar manufacturer. Since the 1990’s Guyatone has been well known for their professional-grade guitar effects pedals. One of the most renown pedals being the Wah Rocker auto wah. Currently we are working with the prototype new series wah rocker designed by world-famous engineer Toshihiko Torii (Guyatone, Hao, Roland). Operated by Toshihiko (Toshi) Torii, DeMont Japan will now be our official Japanese branch as well as Research & Design partner.
Recently the Japanese super-star Yasuhisa Soga was photographed playing a rare Guyatone S7 designed by Toshi Torii, with DeMont alnico-blues single coil pickups. These pickups are available upon special order request in the US at a price of $215 /set of 3. Our DeMont Maxosonic humbuckers are currently available at Maxosonic.com in the US, and in Brazil by partner company, Malagoli Captadores at Brazil.DeMontGuitars.com . Soon these will be available in Japan as well. We are working on a new website and marketing campaign for our humbuckers so if you have any ideas of what you’d like to see on the webpage, pass them along.
Many projects underway at DeMont Guitars’ workshop in Oswego. We will reveal products and information as they become ready. If you are local to the Chicago area, don’t forget to drop by for repairs, custom work, purchases and of course lessons with our instructor, Ryan Worthy.
Of course we are glad to ship out parts, guitars and mail-order custom shop work and repairs so please feel free to emails us: Info@DeMontGuitars.com
