MeloDuende Guitars was launched in 2009 by Cedric, Jérémy & Bertrand in Semur en Auxois, France. Their first prototypes were built during the 1990’s in a precision mechanics workshop. Inspired by the Rickenbacker & Beauchamp Frying Pan guitar they designed a hollow aluminum bodied guitar with wooden neck. This combination of materials leads to a unique tone - the aluminum body increases sustain and dynamic range but this tone is warmed and rounded by the wooden neck(most Melo’s have solid rosewood necks).
