Electric | Fastbacks
Automotive design incited Jean-Yves Alquier’s Fastback electric guitar series. Think Steve McQueen in “Bullitt” with the 1968 Mustang GT. Alquier’s Fastbacks are rounded with a noticeable bigger lower bout. His signature and ergonomic form started to take shape in the mythic Airmail Special, one of his concept guitars.
The necks are set in, contributing to a warm and round tone. Headstocks have a 6-in-line or 3+3 configuration. Pickups are custom built and adapted to a client’s preferences. Fastbacks are available as a solid body or semi-hollow. Only non-exotic wood is used, or bamboo on request. Fastbacks are equipped with high-quality hardware and parts.
