Legacy electric guitars were formerly sold by Billy Hyde stores in Australia. Models resembled popular Gibson and Fender models. Emerald (Chrome) and Diamond (Gold) models reflect higher appointment levels.

In 2008, my Legacy LP emerald seemed to be better quality than any Epiphone models. Twelve years later it still works as new. It is not as nice to play as a Gibson, but it looks and sounds quite good.


RockJam is a budget electric guitar and amplifier brand, made in China. Circa 2020 these were sold in the UK by Argos shops and online at Amazon-  as a £99 starter kit including amplifier and strap.


Danou custom guitars are made in Switzerland by Daniel Meier. Meier started his own joinery business in 1997 and at the same time began to develop the construction of his own guitars. Initially he was building primarily electrical instruments, but later on he began making acoustic guitars as well. He learned acoustic guitar construction techniques from master luthier Karl-Heinz Römmich.  He is a proud member of the European Guitar Builder Association (EGB). Each Danou guitar is hand-made incorporating the customer’s individual wishes. Meier's designs are clever and original - his Celtic design has a curved wooden frame which forms the outline of the guitar. He has developed the Celtic idea further with his Galileo model - a revolvable doubleneck makes the guitar a true hybrid acoustic /electric.


Danocaster is a five-person operation in Nashville, Tennessee, headed by Dan Strain. Danocasters are custom made "vintage" guitars styled from the classic 50s/60s models made from bodies and necks pre-cut from a U.S. supplier, but all are exclusive and done to custom specs derived from Strain’s own collection of vintage Fenders.

Stefano Zanderighi works on classical and steel string guitars. After a long and detailed study of the instruments and methods of the great classical builders, he has developed his own models .Marco Golinelli specializes in building instruments of the lute family as well as early guitars and mandolins. His work is characterized by great care in researching original models and early building and painting methods; the instruments he builds are distinguished by their great fidelity to original models, without losing sight of building details and obtaining a rich and dynamic sound.
