AUSTIN GUITAR HOUSE IS PROUD TO BE AN AUTHORIZED DEALER OF
Introducing the Leonardo Funk Machine Dual Output - a game-changing baritone guitar born from three years of meticulous study by Italian craftsman Bruno Bacci. Designed in the heart of Tuscany, this guitar pushes the boundaries of contemporary music by unleashing unconventional tones and limitless creativity, all while delivering unmatched playability
One of its standout features is the second output, exclusively dedicated to the bass pickup and located on the baritone's three bass strings. This unique innovation unlocks a world of richer, deeper sounds, inspiring new playing techniques and endless musical possibilities.
The original Bacci T-Style brass bridge gives the Leonardo Funk Machine an additional distinctive element. As in the traditional Telecaster, the strings pass over the bridge, then through holes in the body, and are anchored in place by a metal peg inserted into the body that holds the ball end of the string firmly in place. The bridge features a beautiful, unique concentric inlay, three compensated brass saddles, and is hand-finished.
The Leonardo lineup features pickups designed by Bruno Bacci in partnership with Dreamsongs Pickups, a renowned Italian manufacturer with exceptional capabilities. Exclusive to the Leonardo Funk Machine, this guitar sports a pair of Humbuckers that deliver a wide range of sounds, from Jazz to Heavy rock. Plus, the innovative bass pickup captures the unique tonality of the fourth, fifth, and sixth strings, adding to the versatility of this remarkable instrument.
What inspired a second release of the Leonardo Funk Machine? While the baritone guitar already has a lower register than a standard guitar, Bruno Bacci's innovation has taken this instrument to new heights in the realm of sound. By connecting the second output to a bass amp, the fourth, fifth, and sixth strings resonate with a depth that emulates a bass guitar, amplifying both its volume and amplitude.
The Leonardo Funk Machine features a headstock with a striking asymmetrical shape that complements the contours of the body. With a 9-degree angle that's been crafted to provide just the right amount of tension and vibration, this guitar is a marvel of engineering. And thanks to the precision of Gotoh's tuning machines, string tuning is guaranteed to be spot-on every time. Completing the package is a beautiful bone capo that adds the perfect finishing touch.
