Montreal Guitar is proudly Fender's only Gold Level & Custom Care Service Center in Canada!
Small bodied, well balanced with an extremely stable neck, built like a tank and wildly resonant. This one-of-a-kind instrument is a joy to play and watch. A true collectors' item!
The Forty Four is the flagship model from ISLAND Instruments (Nic Delisle), based on the Harmony H44 Stratotone. This incarnation is a special one-of-a-kind creation exhibited at the 2015 Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin. It is the second in a diptych created to explore concepts of found art and upcycling.
The body is constructed entirely of recycled plywood and the graphic "Made in Russia" top was salvaged. The pickup is in a category of its own, wound exclusively for ISLAND to custom specs by MOJO Pickups. It is low-output, microphonic and modeled on the DeArmond Hershey bar. Extremely dynamic and touch responsive, with a crystal clarity across the full tonal spectrum. It is also a wonderful platform for pedals. The entire hardware suite was designed and manufactured in the USA and sports a red anodized finish.
